What were really excited about though, is the art projects space. This year, curator Pryle Behrman has gathered together an exceptional group of young galleries and collectives. Be sure to stop by the stands of Poppy Sebire, Limoncello, and Alisn, who will be showcasing a selection of the east ends up and coming curators and spaces.
