RENAULT ESPACE – THE ULTIMATE WORK OF ART?
The Affordable Art Fair in London, the biannual exhibition of all forms of contemporary art is going from strength to strength. This autumn marks the AAF’s tenth anniversary - and a decade-long successful partnership with official car sponsor, Renault UK.
Transport to the Fair is assured by the Renault VIP fleet of chauffeur-driven silver Grand Espaces, providing a luxurious climate-controlled shuttle service between Cliveden Place off Sloane Square and the marquee. The car’s popularity with visitors to the Fair is not only due to its comfort; the roomy, versatile interior layout is the perfect mode of transport for those giant-size purchases.
A quarter of a century since its inception, the Grand Espace continues to be a benchmark in the increasingly competitive MPV sector. Nicky Wheeler, show director commented "The Affordable Art Fair's ten-year partnership with Renault UK has proved incredibly successful and one which we hope will continue for many years to come. We have over 20,000 visitors to each fair, lots of them with young families, and many prefer to take advantage of the Renault shuttle service rather than bring their own cars in to central London. We receive so much positive feedback about how capacious the Espace vehicles are, and it's amazing to see people bundling huge canvases, sculpture and children in, as they leave the fair!"”
The range of art available at the Fair is greater than ever. 120 galleries are displaying their work and, with paintings, sculpture, photography and original prints, all priced at under £3,000, there is something for every taste. Visitors include art novices as well as seasoned collectors, on the lookout for “undiscovered” talent.
Visitors are encouraged to be hands-on as well, with sculpture and print-making classes as well as activities for children and a free crèche. An artist in residence works throughout the Fair. And there’s a champagne bar and café.
