Alongside there is also a large selection of contemporary work by established British names from the YBA generation such as Hirst, Emin and outsider artists like Banksy. The leading dealers showing at the fair are only too happy to share their knowledge with visitors. A number exhibited at the first Fair back in 1988. Andrew Lambirth, the highly respected art critic of The Spectator wrote: 'The only art fair I make an effort not to miss is the 20/21 British Art Fair ... It's the only gathering of dealers I find really enjoyable and inspiring, with a wide range of high-quality Mod Brit on show, some of which even manages occasionally to seem affordable'.
