NEW YORK—Two new art fairs were added to the already packed fair schedule surrounding New York’s annual contemporary fair, The Armory Show (March 3–6) at Piers 92 and 94 on Manhattan’s West Side.
Moving Image, a new fair of contemporary video art, was conceived by dealer and blogger Edward Winkleman and his colleague Murat Orozobekov of the Winkleman Gallery, and co-organized with Penny Pilkington and Wendy Olsoff of New York’s P.P.O.W. gallery.
Located in the Waterfront Tunnel event space in West Chelsea, Moving Image will be free to the public. Commercial galleries and nonprofit institutions from around the world have been invited by Moving Image’s curatorial advisory committee to present single-channel videos, video sculptures and larger video installations. Works will be presented “without the confines of booths,” according to a release.
Verge, which also organized Verge Miami Beach, to coincide with Art Basel Miami Beach last December, announced the inaugural edition of Art Brooklyn (www.brooklynartfair.com), the first international art fair in the borough, which will take place in multiple locations throughout the DUMBO neighborhood, also running from March 3–6. According to fair organizers, available spaces will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.
