Moniker Projects champions artistic movements embedded in urban culture and public art. Our expertise within the contemporary art sector, and our strong relationships with these artists are key to our direction and success.
Continuing with our philosophy of supporting and representing a portfolio of artists and emerging talents, Moniker Projects has a wealth of experience curating and producing ambitious contemporary art exhibitions, brand campaigns, large scale public art installations, as well as programming film screenings and talks.
Moniker Projects also offers arts consultancy for private collectors looking to start or expand their contemporary art collections. We offer informed and financially savvy advice, from sourcing and acquiring artworks to framing and presentation.
Our passion and interest in alternative subcultures and aesthetics was integral to the development of Shoreditch’s art scene, providing multiple platforms for urban and outsider art forms. In 2010, director Frankie Shea founded, funded, and produced the first annual art fair of its kind, uniquely exhibiting works with roots in urban culture, street-art, and graffiti. The inaugural event drew an attendance of 5,000, which grew to more than 14,000 in the forthcoming years. Shea sold Moniker Art Fair in 2016, and it remains an established satellite event during London’s most important art week.
Shea has also organised exhibitions at various galleries and UK institutions and a rich array of talk programmes, film screenings and commissions such as Living Walls – an ambitious, large scale, public art project for London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
