Melbourne Art Fair 2014 announces 70 participating galleries and artwork highlights

The Melbourne Art Fair, Australia’s longest running and leading art fair presented by the Melbourne Art Foundation, today announced a premier selection of 70 galleries confirmed to participate in the 2014 event. Presented from 13 until 17 August 2014 in the historic Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne’s Carlton Gardens, the Melbourne Art Fair will showcase over 300 artists from around the world presented by some of the best Australian, New Zealand and other international galleries. 

Galleries at the Fair will be presented across two sections, with established galleries in the main MAF Galleries section and emerging galleries and artist collectives presented in the MAF Platform section. MAF Platform continues the Fair’s commitment to exhibiting the best emerging talent by presenting curated galleries and artist run initiatives younger than five years. 

Melbourne Art Fair Director Barry Keldoulis, who will oversee his first Fair in 2014, commented: “The focus of the Fair is to present the best contemporary art from Australasia and we’re excited to have attracted the foremost galleries and artists from the region to participate. Galleries will present a diverse range of works spanning paintings, works on paper, photography, sculpture, new media and installation work by established artists and emerging talent.”
