Art New York is joined by Frieze and TEFAF New York Spring to create a powerhouse weekend of art fairs in May
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.”
