NYC is gearing up for a bunch of art fairs this week, and one that Juxtapoz always likes to check in with is the always great Art on Paper fair at Pier 36 in downtown Manhattan. From KAWS to Mickalene Thomas, the fair focuses on the best of modern and contemporary paper-based work. We gathered a collection of works for a preview today that should highlight the fair.
Art on Paper returns to downtown Manhattan's Pier 36 in March of 2018 with eighty-five galleries featuring top modern and contemporary paper-based art. Art on Paper's medium-driven focus lends itself to significant projects - unique moments that have set the fair apart and established an important destination for the arts in New York City.
Art on Paper's third edition welcomed over 20,000 visitors to Downtown Manhattan’s Pier 36. Over 85 national and international galleries presented photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, and large scale installations - all from, about, by, or on paper - and all challenging the notion of what a work on paper can be. An enthusiastic crowd of collectors, curators, museum directors, advisors, and art-lovers attended Art on Paper, and the fair garnered much positive media attention with its media-driven focus.
Art on Paper’s public projects will return in 2018 with large-scale installations that push the boundaries of work on paper.
The FLATFILES focus section highlighted print dealers and publishers from across the country. Flatfiles exhibitors are chosen because they represent one of the longest and most traditional uses of the fair’s central medium while simultaneously celebrating contemporary subjects. Each booth illustrates the relevance and importance of paper and print-making.
