“Dialogues” is the theme for Art Project in 2017, it collects the communication, relation in a global network, this focus is relatively important as Brexit issue. One of the artwork in Art Projects from Maus Contemporary is the American artist, Travis Somerville, he focuses on racial issue. This scheme refers to Britain’s Home Children programme which indicates there is 150,000 children sent to Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. This piece of art evokes human right by hand drawing those children’s faces in christening gowns, collages with flags and the symbol of seeking asylum from UK.

This commercial art fair also provide quite a number of panels relative to curation. It a fresh and early art fair of the year, art market editor worries about America new policy of tread from Donald Trump and the limited change in the West. Even thought this is a Britain-focus art fair but Korean artists might be the most active Asian artists in this exhibition, also some of the Western artist start to pay attention on the award, culture and fair in China, since Brexit issue will only grow and affect more, art market might switch to Asia in the future.
