THE INAUGURAL ART BROOKLYN
Verge is proud to announce its return to New York during Armory Show 2011 with the inaugural Art Brooklyn, a historic first-ever art fair to take place in multiple locations throughout the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, 3-6 March. Verge has partnered with Two Trees Management, Brooklyn Arts Council and the Brooklyn Borough President’s office to provide critical real estate, government and institutional support to ensure a successful Brooklyn art fair. Available spaces will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. Affordable and accessible for every conceivable tier of exhibitor, we expect available space to fill quickly. Applications are now being accepted for galleries and artists to participate in Art Brooklyn. There are three types of application available, as detailed below.
ABOUT VERGE ART BROOKLYN
An art fair without precedent, Art Brooklyn is the first fair of its kind to be held in Brooklyn, NY. The intention of the fair is to promote and support Brooklyn as a cultural bellwether of artistic endeavor that influences artistic practice the world over. Open to artists and galleries alike at all levels of practice, Art Brooklyn recovers the standard of an art fair as a platform for presenting the best work by living artists.
Verge is an international platform for the most exciting and interesting in new and emerging art. Verge exists to establish boundaries of the extraordinary as a counter to the natural compulsion towards stagnation in the way art is evaluated and delivered to the public. Staying true to this necessary state for the advancement of art requires a sustained focus on the best new ideas and practices of those marginal or newly emerging to international art audiences. The satisfaction of this fixed requirement for a healthy and competitive artistic culture is at the core of Verge as an international exposition of the highest quality artistic production and the galleries, museums and audiences who sustain it.
