Independent Art Fair

Known for its club-like atmosphere, Independent aims to offer a different experience to more conventional art fairs. First conceived in 2009, this show is indeed presented without clearly defined booths. This truly create a free-flowing gallery space that feels more like an exhibition than a marketplace. Approximately 40 exhibitors, who mainly hail from the USA, are invited to display their work. The organisers try every year to showcase many different kinds of mediums at their curated show, so there is something for all tastes. The result is a show with a maverick flair that always surprises and excites its visitors and encourages new interest and fresh thinking about contemporary art. The fair takes place annually in the busy month of March, at the same time as for instance The Armory Show, VOLTA, Clio Art Fair or SCOPE Art Show.

@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.
