Launched in Paris in 2016, Urban Art Fair has become a key event of the urban art movement. Its first New York edition is curated by Olivier Varossieau – also curator of the Paris edition – and Sébastien Laboureau. Urban Art Fair highlights leading street art galleries and artists as well as emerging projects. The fair will also present Urban Influence, an exhibition focused on urban fashion. For the occasion Patti Astor will reopen her legendary FUN Gallery (1981-85) and a series of performances and installations will take over the rooftop and the facade of Spring Studios.
The fair will offer a selection of historic and prestigious galleries both international and French. Jonathan LeVine Gallery, Red Birds Galleries, Taglialatella Galleries, The Bushwick Collective, Fabien Castanier Gallery, Galeries Bartoux NY and WALLWORKS NY will be presented right by side some of the best european galleries like Brugier-Rigail, Urban Spree and others with some very expected solo shows: Hopare (Galerie 42b) and Levalet (Galerie Joel Knafo Art). The fair will highlight the most historic street artists such as Banksy, CRASH, Seen, Keith Haring, originals by Jean-Michel Basquiat and master pieces of Invader and many others… Rising French outsiders like ART IN THE GAME and PDP Gallery will be also present.
