The Art Fair | New York City

Every March, New York City becomes the premier go- to destination for artists, galleries, collectors curators and critics. The concept of a week of arts-related events grew organically, and was formalized with the support of the city in 2009. Here is a guide for you to plan your Art rounds!

The Art Show, is the longest-running and most prestigious art fair in America. Organized by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) to benefit the Henry Street Settlement, the fair presents exhibitions from the nation's leading art dealers and galleries showcasing a variety of museum-quality exhibits ranging from cutting-edge, 21st century works, to masterpieces from the 19th and 20th centuries.

Theorize Contemporary Art Fair,  Impossible to Understand was originally conceptualized and organized by artists Eric Ginsburg, David Pollack and Marina Reiter: ?We are very excited to be able to bring this new art fair concept to the artist community. Theorize gives artists the opportunity to present their work to collectors and galleries directly and engage in an open dialogue. It?s all about giving the artists exposure, a chance to be seen and heard? said David Pollack of Theorize New York.
