There are a few weekends a year in NYC when art takes over the city. There was the Frieze, Pulse, Collective 2 Design Fair, Contemporary Art Fair, Downtown Fair, NADA, Outside Art Fair, Pool Art Fair, Salon Zurcher, The Satellite Show, Select Fair and Verge. No I did not go to them all. I just went to the Frieze and Pulse. It was plenty for one day. As my friend said there is nothing else but art that creates a reaction inside you without any engagement but your own. So true.
I am going to share my highlights….and purchases. Somehow my camera downloaded in a way that I am not exactly sure who each artist is and what gallery the were showing at but I will try. I really like combination of frames and how they hang from the ceiling. Minimalism to say the least.
I loved this piece by Yinka Shonibare. Speaks volumes to conflict around the globe particularly in Africa with the bright colored clothing.
I bought this piece for my office as a comment on social media.
All and all a full day of art. Hooked up with some other art obsessed friends for dinner and we got to discuss all the amazing pieces we saw and loved. We even talked about going to Basel in Switzerland. We will see if that is in my future. It would certainly be fun.
