Fridge Art Fair

Fridge Art Fair does not take itself too seriously. This contemporary art show is light-hearted and concentrates on offering affordable pieces in a non-intimidating atmosphere. IIt aims to offer low-cost exhibiting space to ensure that there are no barriers for local and fledgling artists. Thus, the lobby area is reserved for Brooklyn artists to encourage and help this community in a positive way. There are around 40 exhibitors expected each year. The fair presents pieces that celebrate the fun side of life, especially dog and cat-related images in paint, mixed-media, sculptural and video. Each piece has to fit in a fridge! This open-minded and pet-friendly fair has been created by artist Eric Ginsburg in 2013. Fridge Art Fair takes place annually in NYC, in the busy month of May, at the same time at Frieze New York.

@andigaldi presented by @erikadeakgallery at @photolondonfair 2024. I like the way the artist talks about important issues with a cynical and ironic tone of voice, using artworks mixing photography, drawing, writing.

In conversation with @ravellepillay, a talented young artist from South Africa, represented by @goodman_gallery. Ravelle is known for exploring colonial legacies. She discussed her blend of figuration and abstraction, drawing from personal and national archives. Despite challenges, she remains committed to making a positive impact on the art scene.
