A dedicated section of the fair curated by a Guest Curator, engaging with emerging areas of art and showcasing pieces by fair artists that challange current artistic practice. Past exhibitions include Photo 21, displaying work by twenty-one of the best unrepresented photograhic artists from across the globe; the Jotta Showcase, examining the idea of artistic production; and '100 Mothers' curated by Harry Pye, a charity exhibition presenting portraits by 100 artists depicting their mothers.
