Artexpo New York celebra la sua 47esima edizione

Artexpo New York, the world’s original fine art marketplace, celebrated its 47th year at Pier 36 in Manhattan last April, with more than 18,000 art enthusiasts and industry leaders discending on the Lower East Side of Manhattan to discover the latest trends emerging from today’s art world.

This year’s fair hosted more than 200 innovative national and international exhibiting galleries, art publishers, and artists from more than 27 countries across 70,000 square feet of uninterrupted convention space. Artexpo New York attendees enjoyed the original work of more than 1,000 artists, including prints, paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, ceramics, giclees, lithographs and glass works, among other contemporary and fine art.

Collectors, trade professionals and industry leaders flocked to experience the annual fine art destination, that included well established galleries and dealer, plus [SOLO] – highlighting established and independent emerging artists from the U.S. and around the globe. Attendees enjoyed the annual lineup of interactive programming, including the Spotlight Program, a focused look at several cutting-edge galleries and artists chosen by the Redwood Art Group selection committee; Art Labs, a series of outstanding projects by leading galleries, art institutions, and art collectives within the fair; Meet the Artists and Live Demonstrations, presenting an interactive experience—allowing attendees to get up-close-and-personal with the artists; and Discoveries Collection – selections of artwork chosen by the Artexpo New York curatorial team that make up a group of amazing discoveries throughout the fair.

“This year’s Artexpo New York gave attendees an inside look at the latest talent emerging from around the world,” says Eric Smith, President and CEO of Redwood Art Group. “The fair saw attendance by some of the most prominent leaders in the industry, from established and emerging artists to fine art photographers, gallery collectives, art dealers, publishers, collectors and consultants. This year’s lineup of exhibitors was our most eclectic ensemble to-date. We would like to thank our exhibitors, sponsors, partners and patrons for helping to make this year’s Artexpo New York a resounding success.”

This year’s Spotlight Program continued to be a highlight of Artexpo New York’s programming. This year’s recipients brought their cutting-edge talent to the forefront of the art world. The five Spotlight Program recipients for 2024, included Denise Allen, Galeria Azur, Greg Lotus Gallery, Resurrect Studio, and Tengetsu.

This year’s Art Labs featured a series of outstanding projects by leading galleries, art institutions, and art collectives presented on-site within the fair, and included: “Jason Perez Art Collective” by Jason Perez, “For The Children of Ukraine” by Sammoun Fine Art, “A Second Look” by K-Art Projects, “The Bold Color of Almas Kabani” by The Gallery Steiner, and “Unveiling The Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara Save The Chimps Collection” presented by Save The Chimps. The Artexpo New York Discoveries Collection presented a selection of unique discoveries from this year’s artists and exhibitors, selected by the Artexpo New York curatorial team as its favorite pieces of art throughout the fair.

Acknowledging the acclaimed history of Artexpo New York, Redwood Art Group introduced “Legends” to the 2024 edition – commemorating six special exhibitors who have helped make Artexpo New York such an iconic event. Each Legend was selected by Artexpo’s curatorial team, based on three factors: the exhibitor has showcased at Artexpo New York for 10 years or more; has demonstrated an unswerving representation of artist innovators, consistently bringing forward-thinking and cutting-edge art to the fair, and has brought an articulate and distinctive presentation of each artist’s work, exceeding all display guidelines. This year’s inaugural Legends were Artavita / World Wide Art, Artifact, INNOART, Mecenavie Gallery, and Sammoun Fine Arts.

This year’s Artexpo witnessed remarkable sales and commissions, alongside notable gallery placements for [SOLO] artists. Additionally, artists and galleries were honored for their exceptional achievements, with notable winners including Cyvyn Chen, Ryan Taylor, Sehyun Jean, Eri Yoshida, Van Leeuwen Art, Asit Kumar Patnaik, and Alissa Van Atta.

Each year, thousands of art industry insiders flock to Artexpo New York in search of the art and the artists that will shape trends in galleries worldwide. Over the past several years, Pier 36 has become a recognizable event space in Lower Manhattan, utilized for high-end shows and large-scale events. Artexpo New York celebrated its 47th Anniversary and kicked-off the Spring 2024 season of acclaimed art fairs in New York City.
