Flux Art Fair Press Release:
A contemporary art fair in the culturally rich community of Harlem. FLUX Art Fair is a dynamic artistic platformengaging an international community of collectors and those who simply appreciate art to discover artists and discover the vitality of Harlem. Driven by curators collaborating with artists, FLUX Fair contributes to the vibrancy of Harlem by expanding the scene beyond the walls of the fair, partnering with cultural institutions and creating opportunity for rising Harlem artists within the fair. Guest Curators select lead artists to present significant signature works linking emerging artists to a broader spectrum of art collectors.
Artists and curators respond to the curatorial theme: “The 21st Century Artist is a Nomad”. Harlem, an internationally acclaimed crossroads for the modern caravan of creativity, is a particularly relevant place to explore this theme.
A diverse, intimate, & progressive art fair with a global reach, FLUX Fair mirrors the community of Harlem.
“Like the historically imperative Harlem Renaissance of last century, Harlem today is becoming an important locus for contemporary art. Flux Art Fair will contribute to this in its inaugural presentation by exhibiting artists who work in diverse media and hail from within New York and beyond. Because fair participation and selection is via an eclectic group of curators and not commercial galleries, Flux Art Fair will become a significant alternative model to the art fair standard ubiquitous in New York and the international circuit.” Raul Zamudio, Guest Curator – FLUX Art Fair 2015
