In March, the art fairs come to New York, and�I’ve put together a brief list, with descriptions and helpful links to the individual fairs. Note that many have lectures and panel discussions, so make sure�to check out their websites before planning your weekend.
Salon Z�rcher | New York /�33 Bleecker St / Feb 27 – Mar 5, 2017
Z�rcher has invited�six�galleries from different parts of the world to set up in their spacious Bleecker Street Gallery.
The ADAA Art Show�/�643 Park Ave, Park Avenue Armory /�Mar 1 – 5, 2017
72 galleries present intimately-scaled paintings and sculptures�in�thoughtfully curated exhibition�booths. “A�rich selection of works from the 19th century through today, by artists of a variety of genres, practices, and national and international origin.”
SPRING/BREAK Art Show�/�4 Times Square, entrance on 43rd Street/�Mar 1 – 6, 2017
Spring/Break is the most inventive, least commercial�fair, featuring curated shows of under-recognized and emerging artists. Note that this year the fair has moved from Moynahan Station to the old Conde Nast Building.
VOLTA New York /�12th Avenue at West 50th Street, Pier 90 / Mar 1 – 5, 2017 /�Volta is an intimate fair known for excellent solo presentations from smaller galleries.
The Armory Show /�12th Avenue at 55th Street, Piers 92 and 94 / Mar 2 – 5, 2017+12126456440 / �The flagship fair,�The Armory is�where blue chip galleries from around the world set up shop.�I’m looking forward to seeing if�the paintings reflect the global upheaval , or whether it’s business as usual.
Art on Paper /Pier 36, South Street /�Mar 2 – 5, 2017
Obviously this fair comprises work on paper. Look for�amazing prints and drawings by established�artists.
Clio Art Fair�/�508 W 26th St /�Mar 2 – 5, 2017
CLIO calls itself the anti-fair for emerging artists. “By specifically targeting�artists without any exclusive NYC gallery representation, CLIO ART FAIR focuses attention on the kinds of contemporary art and interventions that are being created by�independent�artists the world over.” Click here for a list of participating artists.
Independent New York�/�50 Varick Street, Spring Studios /�Mar 2 – 5, 2017
Known as the most experimental of the fairs,�the INDEPENDENT often features installations and inventively installed video work. This year, however, many of my favorite galleries are on the roster, so maybe there will be�more painting than usual.
NADA New York�/�572 Washington St, Skylight Clarkson North /�Mar 2 – 5, 2017
NADA likes to invite�smaller, less established galleries that are recognized as�thought-leaders in their own neighborhoods.�Look for�artist-run spaces and other interesting curatorial projects. NOTE: Theodore:Art will be there!
SCOPE New York�/�125 W 18th St, Metropolitan Pavilion /�Mar 2 – 5, 2017
This sounds like Trump writes their PR: “SCOPE Art Show is the largest and most global emerging art fair in the world.”
