CONTEXT New York takes place each May in Manhattan. The fair will join Art New York at Pier 94, located on the Hudson River at 12th Avenue at 55th Street. A VIP Private Preview will kick off art week in New York City before Frieze's opening. CONTEXT New York will provide collectors with a leading alternative fair to acquire important works of contemporary art.
Like its hugely successful sister fair, CONTEXT Art Miami, which launched during Miami Art Week in 2012, CONTEXT New York’s open atmosphere will create meaningful dialogue between collectors, participating galleries, and artists. CONTEXT New York will provide the ultimate platform for both the veteran and new collector to enjoy and acquire emerging, mid-career cutting-edge talent by forty five participating contemporary galleries during one of the most important art weeks in New York City.
The combined efforts of CONTEXT New York and Art New York provide a unique and alternative opportunity for leading primary dealers and their artists to be marketed and promoted internationally during one of the most important weeks for contemporary art in America.
CONTEXT New York and Art New York will utilize Pier 94’s entire 133,000 square-foot exhibition hall. Situated on the West Side Highway, Pier 94 is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan within close proximity to the Chelsea art district, museums and major auction houses.
