Affordable Art Fairs – bridging the gap between desire and affordability

A global phenomenon, the Affordable Art Fair seeks to democratise collecting art and has announced Brisbane as its next destination.

In 2024, Brisbane will become the newest city to host the accessible art phenomenon, the Affordable Art Fair. It is the 15th international city to join the global brand for a four-day celebration of art, which will be taking over the Brisbane Showgrounds. The inaugural Brisbane fair will have more than 40 art galleries exhibiting thousands of original works for sale, priced from as low as $100 to a maximum of $10,000.

Next year will mark 25 years since the launch of the Affordable Art Fair in London in 1999. The celebrated global brand is owned by Ramsay Fairs UK under the direction of the founder, Will Ramsay.
