The New York Art Fairs Spring 2016: Art communicates a message, celebrates beauty and craft, connects us on the deepest emotional levels. With nearly a dozen art fairs this past weekend in the city, the ThoughtMatter crew made sure to get out and get personal with the work. Below are the highlights: the new, the next and the bizarre.
“The Armory Show is America’s leading international art fair taking place annually on pier 92 & 94, overlooking the Hudson River. Now in its 22nd year, The Armory Show is a New York cultural institution and a highly-anticipated event on the global arts calendar.”
“Organized annually by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA), The Art Show offers intimately scaled and thoughtfully curated presentations by the nation’s leading fine art dealers, providing audiences a rich selection of works from the late 19th century through today.”
“VOLTA NY is the invitational fair of solo artist projects and is the American incarnation of the original Basel VOLTA show, which was founded in 2005 by three art dealers as a fair “by galleries, for galleries”.”
“SPRING/BREAK Art Show offers a unique destination for collectors, artists, galleries, critics, scene junkies & art enthusiasts during the city’s art fair week. Over One Hundred curators premiered new artworks created by over 800 artists, all selected around this year’s central art fair theme ⌘COPY⌘PASTE.”
