For the first time SUNDAY art fair was held in London at the P3 Ambika space on Marylebone Road. Taking place from 14th to 16th October 2010, SUNDAY was an international, gallery-led art fair showing a selection of 20 young galleries, exhibiting work by over 60 international artists at the fore of emerging talent.
SUNDAY was organised by three of the participating galleries: Limoncello (London), Croy Neilsen (Berlin) and Tulips and Roses (Brussels) and sponsored by the Zabludowicz Collection.
Among the artists on show were: Jesse Ash, Edwina Ashton, Francesco Barocco, Michael Bauer, Luca Bertolo, Armin Boehm, Wolfgang Breuer, Sophie Bueno-Boutellier, Liudvikas Buklys, Nicolas Ceccaldi, Kit Craig, Gintaras Didžiapetris, Chris Evans, John Finneran, Zipora Fried, Aurélien Froment, Simon Fujiwara, Ryan Gander, Andy Holden, Judith Hopf, Takaaki Izumi, Jessica Jackson Hutchins, Thomas Kratz, Deborah Ligorio, Anissa Mack, David Mackintosh, Joseph Montgomery, Rosalind Nashashibi, Dominique Petitgand, Riccardo Previdi, Ruth Proctor, Matthew Smith, Jack Strange, Megan Francis Sullivan, The Hut Project, Richard Wilson, Richard Woods and Katarina Zdjelar.
SUNDAY’s first outing was in Berlin during the 2010 Gallery Weekend where it was so well received that the organisers decided to bring it to London during this year’s October art week. Housed in the P3 Ambika, a 14,000 square foot, triple height subterranean space, the fair aims to provide an easy going and accessible temporary platform for young galleries to exhibit their artists’ work.
Independent contemporary bookshop and publisher Aye Aye Books (Glasgow) and publishing house Archive Books (Berlin) were also at SUNDAY with a selection of journals and publications available to purchase. Raising funds for their Interaction programme, the Zabludowicz Collection presented a selection from their limited edition sculptures, photographs and prints.
Entry to SUNDAY was free and open to all, with Ryan's bar and café providing refreshments. Five artists (Fiona Banner, David Batchelor, Liam Gillick, Christian Jankowski and Bob and Roberta Smith) have been asked to design a cocktail for bar and they were mixing, shaking and serving them for customers at allotted times.

Liam Gillick’s cocktail was titled Maybe it would be better if we worked in groups of two and a half, 2010, using the following recipe:
One small straight glass filled with ice
fill entire glass with decent vodka
squeeze half a fresh lime into already filled glass
the drink should spill over the edge of the glass
