London: Vauxhall Art Car Boot Sale

Image copyright Nick Cunard, courtesy Art Car Boot Fair - Sarah Lucas' limited edition mug.

Hot on the heels of Paris' art-book-swap is London's art car boot sale. The "Car boot" is a peculiarly British phenomenon, not unlike a vide-grenier in France or a garage sale in the US. Billed as "the art-world equivalent of Kate Moss at Top Shop" the 2006 event featured over 45 pitches, special on-car and in-car art commissions, live DJ’s, performance and a multitude of art wares spilling out of car boots. Not bad, a chance to buy real limited edition works from well-known artists at car boot sale prices.

Artist's included: Gavin Turk • Bob and Roberta Smith • Boudicca • Pam Hogg • Tracey Emin
+ 'Fashion Car Booty' featuring gems from: Giles Deacon • Hussein Chalayan • Peter Jensen • Eley Kishimoto • Future Classics • Tatty Devine • Daisy de Villeneuve • Buddhahood and scores more.
