NEWD Art Show brings together strong local curatorial voices –among them artist collectives, project spaces, nonprofits, and artist-run galleries–to share 7,000 sq ft of open warehouse space during Bushwick Open Studios.
A counterpoint to the existing art fair model, NEWD features diverse participants with ambitious, experimental programming. The event also hosts talks addressing artist economics in today's art market.
By championing grassroots, content-driven initiatives, NEWD aims to invigorate the fair model. A response to the expansion of the art market and the erosion of the traditional gallery system, the fair fosters a conversation about alternative ways to engage and support emerging artists. NEWD also promotes artists' interests by offering negotiated resale royalty agreements.
NEWD's location and timing reflects its artist-centric mission, re-contextualizing the art fair by situating it in the territory of art production.
