In 2003 they developed the Art Car Boot Fair Project, beginning with the 2003 London to Brighton Art Car Boot Fair and Rally as part of the Brighton Photo Biennial.. This was followed by the standalone and hugely successful 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2008 Art Car Boot Fair events in London working with a variety of artists, performers, fashion designers and DJ 9s.<br><br> Through Art Car Boot Fair projects, Karen Ashton is developing ideas for spin-off events which share a similar ethos for 2009. Art Car Boot Fair has also launched Pretty Taxing, In 2008 there was The Vauxhall Pretty Taxing Fashion Collection with Natasha Law, Boudicca, Stuart Semple, David David, Emma Bell and Pam Hogg all taking part. The Art Car Boot Fair breaks out of its Brick Lane car park and heads for the gently rolling hills of Eastnor Castle for this year at the 2009 Big Chill, 5-7th August, shedding some of its urban pretensions and picking up some rural habits along the way.<br><br> Join us for this 'fete in festival d at the Big Chill between mid-day and 6pm each day.
