Zoo Art Enterprises presents
Within a new multi-site location situated in the East End, the producers of Zoo Art Fair present Zoo 2009. An event that takes on an adapted structure, bringing together over 50 contemporary arts organisations and practitioners, through a series of exhibitions, solo shows and stand presentations. These include specially curated exhibitions by Rob Tufnell, Studio Voltaire, FormContent and LUX; solo shows by winner of the 2008 Champagne Perrier-Jouët Prize – Scoli Acosta and winner of the 2008 John Jones Art on Paper Award – Clunie Reid; as well as 25 stand presentations and 14 solo work statements by young international arts galleries and project spaces. In addition the event presents a new section selling artists’ editions and multiples from major private and public institutions. Bringing together all elements of the event, the Zoo 2009 Catalogue – a special full-colour publication – will be kindly sponsored by Hallett Independent.
This year, Zoo 2009 will produce an East End Map, highlighting over 60 contemporary art organisations within a 2 mile distance of Zoo 2009. Representing all types, from emerging to established, public to private, commercial to non-commercial spaces, it will offer visitors a unique insight into the richness of what is known to be Europe’s largest cultural quarter.
Zoo 2009 is produced by Zoo Art Enterprises – a non-profit organisation that specialises in emerging contemporary art. Zoo 2009 is sponsored by established galleries, collectors, commercial brands and arts businesses as well as public funding. Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
For collectors, curators, critics, dealers, artists and art enthusiasts, Zoo 2009 remains a considered introduction to the next generation of art professionals.
