In eleven years, Tribal Art London has established itself as the largest Ethnographic art fair in the UK and is an important focal point for international and local collectors. The fair has also made its mark on the international fair circuit for its diversity of works on display, as well as for its lectures and talks on many subjects relating to indigenous cultures. With around 20 experienced and prestigious dealers specialising in fine tribal art, the fair brings together an immense collection gathered from all over the world.
