Fair Week

I am skipping Fair Week in NY and will watch it through the eyes of the art media. I like the way that Galerie Zurcher is handling the idea of art fairs by creating one in their own gallery space. Here is text from their website that explains their approach.

"Salon Zürcher will be a testament to the alternative thinking happening on the LES & in Brooklyn. For those who feel they are missing out on visiting the individual gallery amongst the whirlwind of the week of the Armory Show, they will find an accessible & impressive, small but representative fair at Salon Zürcher. Our 2500 sq. ft. space will be transformed into a mini art fair; 6 booths will be constructed, all with like dimensions. At the center of the gallery will be a promenade for easy access and movement from one gallery’s booth to the next."

The galleries that will be participating are:

Audio Visual Arts (AVA)
Feature Inc.
The Journal Gallery
The Proposition
Parker’s Box
Stephan Stoyanov Gallery
Zürcher Studio
