Seen as an antithesis to the Frieze Art Fair, Pavilion of Art and Design, and anything else reasonably highbrow happening this week, Moniker runs concurrently to promote urban inspired art.
Notably this year, six ‘signature projects’ have been commissioned as designated artist spaces where each can experiment live.
Expect set design, canvases featuring portraiture or something more abstract, sculpture and graffiti installations.
Painting duo Best Ever are producing an installation designed to mimic a place of worship. Their works will be displayed inside candle-lit alcoves set into distressed dark wood-panel walls.
A gothic mural – inspired by the Catholic iconography which has informed these works – is to overlook an alter carrying candles, flowers and artifacts.
Look out for Beejoir’s A Pill A Day installation – a cereal bowl apparently containing tablets, housed in a padded cell, and the debut of LA based Dabs Myla who will paint a mural at midday on Saturday over the outside walls of the venue.
Moniker Art Fair runs from 13-16 October at Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, London, EC2A
