Redwood Media Group, the nation’s leader in exhibitions and event production, media, and marketing for the global art community, has announced the relocation of its highly anticipated four-day annual showcase to a newly renovated Pier 90 exhibition space in the heart of Manhattan.
This year’s 41st annual Artexpo New York has relocated to Pier 90 at 711 12th Avenue in New York, from its previously announced location, Pier 92, following a city inspection revealing that two of the West Side piers that house event space were determined to be structurally unsound. The dates for Artexpo New York will remain the same, taking place Thursday, April 4th to Sunday, April 7th. Exhibitor or trade registration and purchasing of show passes or general admission tickets is now open at www.artexponewyork.com.
The annual fine art destination will once again offer Three Shows Within One Venue at the heart of Midtown Manhattan, across 80,000 square feet of uninterrupted convention space. The show will host more than 300 innovative exhibiting galleries, art publishers, and artists from across the globe, showcasing original work of 1000+ artists that includes prints, paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, ceramics, giclee, lithographs and glass works, among other contemporary and fine art.
To celebrate its 41 years of excellence in art, Artexpo New York presents [TRANSFORM] as the curatorial theme for 2019 – examining the power of art, how it challenges the status quo, changes our perceptions, and pushes us to see ourselves and others from a new perspective. Through its power, art transforms. Throughout its four historic decades in contemporary and fine art, Artexpo New York has hosted the likes of Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Keith Haring and Leroy Neiman; intensifying the discourse on today’s industry challenges and magnifying the very best the fine art world has to offer. In addition to visiting the world’s largest fine art trade show, more than 35,000 avid art enthusiasts and industry leaders will return to enjoy [SOLO] highlighting established and independent emerging artists and [FOTO SOLO] featuring fine art photography from some of the world’s finest abstract, contemporary and realist photographers. This year’s Artexpo New York will also feature its annual lineup of interactive and educational programming covering the industry’s most progressive topics and trends.
Artexpo New York begins with Thursday’s trade only day, fully devoted to the largest international gathering of more than 5,000 art industry representatives and qualified trade buyers every year—including gallery owners and managers, art dealers, interior designers, architects, corporate art buyers, and art and framing retailers. Attendees will have an opportunity to browse thousands of innovative new works of art and enjoy education seminars, cocktail parties, and other special events. [SOLO] offers established and emerging independent artists the opportunity to showcase their work on an international stage. Over the decades, [SOLO] has become the ultimate venue for independent artists to be discovered—not only by gallery owners and art publishers, but also by collectors and enthusiasts. [FOTO SOLO] includes collections of fine art photography by some of the world’s most acclaimed independent photographers.
