NEW YORK – The inaugural art + design new york, which will showcase the best in three-dimensional art and design, from ceramics, wood, textiles, glass, sculpture, as well as contemporary jewelry, painting, and photography, will open at 82Mercer Street, in Soho, on May 8-11, 2014.
“We are very excited to debut art + design new york with a strong roster of leading international galleries,” says Donna Davies, the fair’s director.
While art + design new york will present similar materials and galleries as seen at SOFA Chicago, Davis emphasizes that this new show will expand the range of disciplines in an exciting juxtaposition of multiple media and genres. Says Davies, “With Frieze New York as the anchor for the art world in the month of May, we think it’s a great time for galleries to be in New York and we look forward to being part of the exciting week.”
With her proven track record of helming the Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design Fair in Chicago (SOFA Chicago) as well as her stint with SOFA New York, Davies is confident that art + design new york will become an important destination for art collectors and contemporary design enthusiasts.
