ARTEXPO NEW YORK CELEBRATES 41 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE IN ART
New York, NY – January 30th, 2019: Redwood Media Group, the nation’s leader in exhibitions and event production, media, and marketing for the global art community, announces its highly anticipated four-day annual showcase, marking 41 years of the nation’s most coveted fine art experience. Artexpo New York 2019 relocates to Pier 90 at 711 12th Avenue in Manhattan, from 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, including 3,000 square feet within Pier 90 Lounge, located on the venue’s Mezzanine level, as an addition for this year’s visiting guests. Artexpo New York 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.
“For 41 years and counting, Artexpo New York has changed how people buy and sell art,” says Eric Smith, President and CEO of Redwood Media Group. “This year, we will undergo our own evolution as the show moves to Pier 90. We look forward to welcoming the world’s contemporary and fine art industry, as we champion the transformative power of art.”
Hosting more than 35,000 avid art enthusiasts, including 5,000+ trade representatives every year, Artexpo New York is the largest international gathering of qualified trade buyers—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.
As part of the interactive schedule of programming, this year’s Artexpo New York will include Art Labs, featuring specially curated site-specific projects by prominent galleries, art institutions, and art collectives within the show; as well as the Spotlight Program, providing collectors with a focused look at several prominent galleries and artists that will each be creating a site-specific exhibition. This year’s expo also features the Topics & Trends Education Program, which includes four days of complimentary seminars and conference classes offering expert perspectives on subjects ranging from art and the economy, small business management and art marketing to design and decor trends and social media management for artists. The full schedule of programming activity will be announced in March.
An addition to this year’s Artexpo New York will include Pier 90 Lounge – a dedicated upper level created for visiting guests to relax and network while enjoying the refreshing hospitality from the array of food and beverage sponsors. Stairs to the Mezzanine level will reveal 3,000 square foot of comfortable lounge space overlooking the main exhibition hall that will be occupied by vendors including Brew Dr., My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream, Zico coconut water, KIND nutritional bars and Bare Snacks, among others.
