CAVE is an artist led art fair for the city of Liverpool coinciding with the opening of the Liverpool Biennial 2012.
Presenting 45 of the UK’s most exciting unrepresented artists whilst taking no commission or exhibition fee from those participating; CAVE is a new model of art fair.
Coinciding with the opening celebrations of the 7th Liverpool Biennial, CAVE will run from 13th - 16th September, existing independently of but alongside the festival. CAVE aims to give emerging artists an ambitious sales & exhibition platform and the opportunity to engage with wide audiences who are invited to explore the dynamic of buying directly from the artist in a contemporary art fair environment. Playing on it’s independent position; CAVE is exhibiting some of the most exciting, art being produced in the UK today. Painting, drawing, sculpture and film will exist alongside performative encounters, secret talks and urban shamanic rituals.
CAVE, the brainchild of Flis Mitchell and Kevin Hunt (artists and curators based at The Royal Standard in Liverpool) was born out of a desire to create a commercial platform for emerging and unrepresented artists during the Biennial, something that has never happened before.
CAVE supports the very best creative talent the UK has to offer, removes gallery mediation, and creates a dialogue directly between the artist and the buyer; stimulating the local and wider regional art markets within the UK.
