Independent art fair returns to New York from September 9—12 with a new home, the recently restored Battery Maritime Building, also making its virtual debut with the first-ever Independent Online Viewing room, live through September 26. Similar to the format of the 2014 edition of the fair at the old Dia Center for the Arts, this year’s iteration will see 40 international galleries invited to share specially commissioned presentations that focus on subjects and artists relevant to the present-day.
Fairgoers can expect to find presentations from eleven newcomers, including Alexandre Gallery, BROADWAY, Matthew Brown Los Angeles, Higher Pictures Generation, Mrs., Off Paradise, The Ranch, REGULARNORMAL, ross+kramer gallery, Vito Schnabel Gallery, and Axel Vervoordt Gallery. Meanwhile, returning galleries include names like Reyes | Finn, Lisson Gallery, MAGENTA PLAINS, Derek Eller Gallery, CANADA, Karma, Peres Projects, and Galerie Eva Presenhuber.
Highlights include presentations like Various Small Fires presenting works by the Trinidadian artist Che Lovelace, an intergenerational presentation of Erik Parker and Ana Benaroya by ross+kramer gallery, and Reyes | Finn’s show of works by Nikita Gale and the late Thornton Dial, which looks at American sociopolitical issues. Other shows to look out for are REGULARNORMAL’s group presentation focused on the year of the pandemic where each work measures 20 x 20 inches, a solo show of Peter Halley from The Ranch (a new gallery located on Andy Warhol’s Montauk farm), and Parker Gallery’s survey of Maija Peeples-Bright.
Along with presenting commissioned content online, the OVR will also feature a roster of accompanying programming like a series of interviews, talks, podcasts, artist takeovers, virtual studio visits, and more than 50 exclusive editorial features.
