Deets: MvVO ART is proud to present the inaugural debut of the Accessible Art Fair New York, following ten successful years in Brussels. An expert jury has selected 60 rising-star artists, painters, sculptors and photographers from the rich and varied talent pool of New York and around the world. The work of these artists on the cusp of discovery will be displayed in one of New York City’s most enchanting venues — The National Arts Club — throughout November 2016.
“The Accessible Art Fair New York is a departure from conventional art fairs. The objective is to bring talented emerging and mid-career artists — unknown and often unrepresented — in direct contact with art collectors, art world professionals, and the general public. It’s an opportunity for everyone to discover new talent and break down barriers between artists and collectors, all within a high-end and friendly environment”. -Maria van Vlodrop, Founder, MvVO ART and Director & Co-Founder, Accessible Art Fair New York
A Panel of Experts
To ensure the quality of the work presented, our panel of experts made selections from over 400 artist applications, which the Accessible Art Fair New York received during our Call To Artists in March & April 2016.
For the 2016 edition of the Fair, the panel welcomed: Kevin Doyle (Sotheby’s ) Shaune Arp (Gagosian Gallery), Rozalia Jovanovic (artnet), Ann Lydecker (Christie’s Collectrium), Rachel Rees (Sutton), Shari Brownfield (Art Advisor), Joyce Varvatos (Art Advisor), Sophie Clauvaert (ArtExpert) and Stephanie Manasseh (Brussels’ Accessible Art Fair Founder)
Curating the 2016 Fair in New York will be Stephanie Manasseh (Founder & Chief Curator, Accessible Art Fair), along with Guest Curator, Isaac Aden (Ethan Cohen, WhiteBox).
“We had such a wonderful response to our call for artists and I think our jury did a great job and made a fantastic selection of artists which we are planning to show. I am very excited to be working with my guest curator Isaac Aden. Isaac has extensive experience in New York. With our combined experience, I think we make a great team”. -Stephanie Manasseh, Founder, Brussels’ Accessible Art Fair
