It’s Armory Week here in NYC, and we’re pumped to get out and see some art. Here are some shows that we’re excited about this year.
Art on Paper
Art. On. Paper. It might seem pretty basic, but the breadth of art covered by this catchall is extraordinary. From illustrators and printmakers accurately and beautifully reproducing their work, to art literally made out of paper, the fair emphasizes and explores the possibilities within the medium that bears its name. The third edition of the fair returns to Pier 36 in Manhattan. Tickets can be had for $25 here.
This year SCOPE is celebrating its 16th anniversary of its Breeder program, introducing emerging galleries to a wider audience. The NYC show runs through March 5th at a new location in Chelsea at the Metropolitan Pavilion and promises its customary array of thrills across disciplines and continents.
Clio Art Fair
Focusing on artists without exclusive NYC gallery affiliations, Clio Art Fair functions as an “anti-fair” for independent, contemporary artists. More concerned with opportunities for expression than mainstream validation, the fair continues to present groundbreaking content. Clio Art Fair is free to the public, and runs until March 5th at 508 W 26th Street in Manhattan.
Affordable Art Fair
Back for its 23rd iteration in NYC later this month (from March 20 through April 2 at the Metropolitan Pavilion), Affordable Art Fair contends that art is for everyone. We couldn’t agree more. Showcasing both established and emerging talents and with tickets starting at $18, we can’t wait to check it out.
