Next week, Moniker Art Fair will open its tenth edition at London’s Old Truman Brewery during London’s most important art week. While traditional urban art changes, Moniker continues to remain unashamed and unafraid. This year’s pertinent theme – Uncensored – sheds light on social, economic and ecological issues through varying media, including works in Moniker’s incredible immersive installation hall in collaboration with Urban Nation Museum.
In a ground-breaking endeavor to make the fair as accessible as possible, Moniker will extend the 30,000 square foot space outdoors, showcasing the first-ever Formula-E art car by renowned British street artist D*Face, as part of the fair’s ongoing collaboration with Kaspersky Lab.
Celebrating the heritage of art in motorsport and inspiring people to take positive action in helping ‘Save The World’ with Kaspersky, D*Face’s innovative work will complement the custom-designed helmets exhibited in the fair worn by the Virgin Racing Formula E team. Standing together to make a change to protect our climate, by putting a stop to plastic waste and the use of damaging fuels, this exciting collaboration ties into the theme of Uncensored. By allowing art to speak out against injustice, Moniker invites visitors to understand the power of individuals to create real and impactful change.
Visitors will enter the fair through legendary Parisian duo Lek & Sowat’s immersive ephemeral maze to discover a host of installations, including Vesod’s seven-metre-long mural and multidisciplinary activist’s
Ann J. Lewis’ statistical installation reflecting on the destruction of young lives relating to the Syrian conflict. Lewis will hang 25 pairs of porcelain baby shoes from the ceiling, representing the number of children expected to lose their lives in Syria over the duration of Moniker Art Fair.
