Art New York 2016 starts tonight at Pier 94. —
In it’s second year in New York, this contemporary art fair will be joined by it’s sister art fair CONTEXT. Both produced by the celebrated Art Miami, the two events will showcase artwork from more than 150 galleries representing nearly 1,200 artists from 50 countries. Launching New York Art Week before Frieze New York opens and the major auction house previews, Art New York and CONTEXT New York will present the largest collection of art in Manhattan, including many neverbefore-exhibited, exclusive and highly anticipated projects and exhibitions.
The Catalog is on line and on page 37 for Artêria Gallery, you can see my work “Se détacher du fil perdu” beside Jason Cantoro’s piece.
Directed by Katelijne De Backer, the second edition of Art New York will showcase notable exhibitions including:
• Galerie von Vertes will showcase a never-before-seen 1947 Picasso piece Oiseau en Cage in addition to a $3.5 million piece by Gerhard Richter. Additionally, the gallery will exhibit Banksy’s Lenin on Rollerblades and the largest Victor Vasarely piece on the market today, Sans Titre, which measures 90 x 63 inches.
• Casterline Goodman Gallery will display an exclusive and never-before-seen piece by Yayoi Kusama worth over $1 million.
• From Singapore, iPreciation is presenting a solo exhibition of Gao Xingjian’s early and recent painting. Gao Xingjian is an important leading cultural figure who is much more than a painter as an accomplished and internationally recognized writer, playwright, director, painter and photographer who is the first Chinese to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
• Led by feminist legend and minority activist Bernice Steinbaum, The Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, will pay homage to New York’s pigeons, comparing them to the complex, navigational and intelligent “New Yorker.” Notable works include Osprey and Weakfish, Paris, Showgirl and Wisdom.
• David Benrimon Fine Art will exhibit Superman by Andy Warhol, La Victoire de Samothrace by Yves Klein and Thinking Nude by Roy Lichtenstein. • Flowers Gallery will host John Keane’s book signing for The Art of John Keane.
• Smith Davidson will highlight works by Damien Hirst, the most prominent member of the group known as the Young British Artists (or YBAs), who dominated the art scene in the UK during the 1990s. Internationally renowned, Hirst is reportedly the United Kingdom’s richest living artist. He became famous for a series of artworks in which dead animals (including a shark, a sheep and a cow) are preserved—sometimes having been dissected—in formaldehyde. Death is a central theme in his works.
