Sunday August 30, 12-4pm
Turner Contemporary’s car park, Margate

London’s Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair will be by the Sea in Margate this UK Bank Holiday weekend and if you’re looking to pick up a just-for-the-day edition by Tracey Emin AND play Pin the Tiara on Edvard Munchs ‘Scream’, then it’s not to be missed. The fair is well known as a favourite of a host of well known artists, offering the chance to buy their work directly and at affordable prices.

The Art Car Boot Fair is an original idea by Karen Ashton and has been developed by Karen and her sister Helen Hayward since their first event in 2004 in London. It was an idea that grew out of a desire to pick up where Joshua Compston’s ‘Fete Worse than Death’ and Gavin Turk’s ‘Livestock Market’ and Articultural Shows’ blazed a trail in the 90’s and to re-introduce some summer fun and frivolity into a thriving but increasingly commercial London art scene.

“We aim for the Art Car Boot Fair to be a day when the artists let their hair down and for all-comers to engage with art in a totally informal way, and to pick up some real art bargains to boot! Participation in the Art Car Boot Fair is by invitation and referral by original ‘booters’ only.”

The fair is supported by Vauxhall Motors and the Arts Council of England.
