A visit to the amazing KINETICA ARTFAIR

This is an Artfair and exhibition like no other you have probably been to.

The art is "kinetic" not static, its moving or can be moved and touched, it may react to your touch and change in shape or be sound or light activated or it could even be just made from light. As they say it ...“The Kinetica Art Fair, is the UK's only art fair and exhibition specialising in Kinetic, Electronic, Robotic, Sound, Light, time-based and multi-disciplinary New Media Art, science and technology.”. And if you want it ... its all for sale.

We will meet outside the University of Westminster across the road from Madame Tussauds, by the pedestrian crossing, by a Meetup sign. If it’s raining – we’ll be under the canopy for the entrance to the University 2 mins from the fair entrance.

Ticket prices for just the Artfair are £12+ booking fees and you can buy online at or on the door at a higher price of £16 but this allows to events, talks and performances

More details of what events, talks and performances will be going on that day will be updated here.

Online tickets are available from

Note: It does get hot in there due to all the lights and electronics so don't wear heavy clothes

Check out these two video reports from 2011 from the BBC and the Telegraph

The MAD Museum will again be exhibiting at Kinetica Art Fair 2013. Despite only being open a year, The MAD (Mechanical Art & Design) Museum has already become one of Stratford upon Avon’s most popular attractions. This one-of-a-kind museum showcases Kinetic Art and Automata from pioneering artists all around the world.

Some great quotes about the fair are:

"If you can’t find something to excite you at Kinetica you probably don’t have a pulse” The Daily Telegraph

“Much of the work at Kinetica serves to highlight the quirks of our own being, the ways in which we move and think…it is a show of wonder and delight” Fortean Times

“If you like your art to be moving in all senses, this is for you” The Independent

“Representing movement, time and vision…the Kinetica Art Fair reveals just how sophisticated kinetic artists have become” The Guardian

Afterwards we can go for a drink across the road in the Metropolitan Bar, 7 Station Approach, NW1 5LD as we’ll all want to share what we’ve seen.
