Areimag­ined and re­vi­sioned Art Newyork will now set the tone for what is turn­ing out to be the new art fair sea­son in the city. Com­ing to­gether over the first week­end in May, Art Newyork will be joined by Frieze Newyork and TEFAF’S New York Spring show cre­at­ing a holy tri­umvi­rate of art fairs show­cas­ing ev­ery­thing from classical his­toric Euro­pean and Amer­i­can art to lead­ing con­tem­po­rary of­fer­ings. “It’s work­ing out well for us,” says Nick Korniloff, founder and di­rec­tor of Art New York. “there’s ob­vi­ously a huge in­ter­est in art that week with the ma­jor gal­leries open­ing new shows, new ex­hi­bi­tions at the mu­se­ums and ma­jor auc­tions. So, it’s a busy time for the art mar­ket. when you con­sider those ac­tiv­i­ties, as well as Frieze and TEFAF join­ing the cal­en­dar, you’ll see peo­ple fly­ing in from all over the globe that week­end.”

Art Newyork was launched in 2015 by Korniloff and his part­ners Mike Tansey and Brian Tyler in 2015 as Art Miami New York.the fair changed its name in 2017 to Art Newyork and this year will add CON­TEXT Newyork, a coun­ter­part to its Miami fair of the same name that was launched in 2012. CON­TEXT pro­vides col­lec­tors a chance to ac­quire works from emerg­ing and mid­ca­reer artists.

Gal­leries par­tic­i­pat­ing in Art

New York in­clude Adel­son Gal­leries, Rosen­feld Gallery, tay­lor | Gra­ham, and Val­lar­ino Fine Art.

“All of our shows of­fer a great op­por­tu­nity for the most sea­soned col­lec­tors to come in and find a gem for their col­lec­tion,” says Korniloff. “with this group of gal­leries, fea­tur­ing work from emerg­ing, mid­ca­reer to blue-chip, one can find a de Koon­ing, warhol or a Licht­en­stein. Art fairs have be­come the num­ber one for­mat for gal­leries to go out and meet new col­lec­tors one on one and es­tab­lish re­la­tion­ships.and artists en­joy them be­cause they are able to get feed­back on how col­lec­tors are re­act­ing to their work.”
