Crunch: the Hay art fair returns in May with an expanded presentation of contemporary art coupled with an incredible live programme.



This year we are excited to announce that the event will take place as part of HowTheLightGetsIn 2015 - the world's largest philosophy and music festival.



Crunch 2015 will combine the best of emerging and contemporary art scenes: from the visionary galleries exhibiting, to riveting debates by some of the UK’s most prominent artists, critics and curators. Previous guests have included leading artists such as Marc Quinn, Martin Creed and Jake Chapman; along with gallerists, theorists and curators such as the Serpentine’s Julia Peyton-Jones and Hans Ulrich Obrist and the Courtauld Institute’s Julian Stallabrass.



Crunch and HowTheLightGetsIn are produced by the Institute of Art and Ideas (IAI). Its continued success is only possible with your help.
