The inaugural 2014 edition of NEWD Art Show brought 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. 

The event also hosted talks addressing issues affecting artists today, such as artist resale royalties and the gentrification of art neighborhoods. 

Not just another art fair, NEWD aims to invigorate the fair model by bringing collectors to the territory of art production to engage with emerging artists in their studios and discover experimental curatorial initiatives.
