Whether you are looking to enhance your art collection or just absorb some art inspiration, the 5th edition of Art New York is just the ticket. The fair includes works by Jean Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, KAWS, Retna, Damien Hirst, Robert Indiana, Willem de Kooning, Keith Haring, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Frank Stella, and Jean Dubuffet among others.
Presented by Art Miami, Art New York’s philanthropic partner is the New York Academy of Art, and they are presenting an exhibit during the fair, curated by Academy president David Kratz, along with Academy supporter Helena Christensen, with works by Academy alumni including Dina Brodsky, Diana Corvelle, Shiqing Deng, Christian Fagerlund, Jacob Hicks, Sara Issakharian, and Will Kurtz, among many others.
The fair, running through Sunday, May 5th, includes nearly 300 artists represented by 70 international galleries. It showcases works by important contemporary, post-war, and pop artists, and features painting, photography, prints, drawings, design, and sculpture. “For our fifth edition, we are proud to present a premium art fair that showcases an impressive selection of artworks from artists of the 20th and 21st centuries as well as work from the most significant emerging artists,” said Nick Korniloff, Director, Art New York. “In addition, our presentation provides a worthy complement to the activities taking place during New York art week.”
During the fair, young art lovers can visit The Children’s Museum of the Arts booth to create their own works of art. Teachers will host one-hour sessions throughout the day, allowing parents and caregivers to enjoy the fair while their little ones learn some contemporary art techniques. Spots are available on a first-come first-serve basis on site, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to choose a time.
The fair includes many special events, including the Jerkface Interactive 360-Degree Photo Booth presented by Taglialatella Galleries: An enclosed, immersive experience which allows the viewer to step inside one of the artist’s larger-than-life murals.
“Art New York presents a rejuvenated platform to present the finest selection of contemporary, modern, post-war, and pop art alongside our CONTEXT platform with emerging, mid-career and cutting-edge talents,” said Julian Navarro, Co-Director, Art New York. “Following last season’s redesign, our revitalized ambience and amenities will continue to present a fresh and inspired perspective that will provide our collectors with a premier experience.”
