The Approach, a London Gallery, at The Independent Art Fair - Artist: Magalis Reus.
Art Fair, New York - 2012
This is the third year for the "Independent" in New York. It is the only art fair which is actually in New York's current contemporary arts district. The show takes advantage of the vacated museum space left behind by "Dia" Chelsea. The space is bright and clean like "Dia" Beacon, just not as open and certainly not massive. The Independent is a different fair, in that it is set up like a museum exhibition (no gallery booths). Although the display can be a little confusing when trying to figure out which artworks go with which galleries and where the artist, title and medium information is located for each piece, on balance this open exhibition format is a "breath-of-fresh-air" and sets the Independent apart from the many other satellite fairs during Armory Arts Week.
On with the show - Independent, NY - 2012.

on the roof!
The four story structure uses its roof as a fifth floor and multifunction space. The lounge was created by the fair as a place to eat, have a drink, and relax. There was nothing special about the food and beverage offerings, but on a clear day, like last Sunday, the Independent's roof was a great place just to hang out and soak up some sun!
