Clio Art Fair is delighted to share the opening of its 15th edition

September 7 - 10, 2023

@ 550 West 29th Street, New York, NY 10001

 

Clio Art Fair is a contemporary art fair that focuses on showcasing independent artists without exclusive gallery representation in NYC. It is held biannually in May and September. The fair is known for its democratic approach to art and its emphasis on showcasing artists from a wide range of backgrounds and styles. The fair is named after Clio, the Greek Muse of History and Poetry, and is intended to give artists a platform to create a legacy through their work.

 

Clio Art Fair was created in 2014 by Alessandro Berni to offer a fresh and alternative perspective on the traditional art fair model and to challenge the traditional art market’s methodologies. Clio is an alternative to more established art fairs which are often dominated by big galleries and high-priced artwork.

 

Clio Art Fair aims to create an intimate and approachable environment where artists and collectors interact directly. Unlike traditional art fairs, the Clio Art Fair does not have large booths or commercial galleries. Instead, each artist is given their own exhibition space to display their work.

 

The fair features a diverse range of contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, photography, and mixed media. It also offers a wide range of performances.

 

Clio Art Fair has gained a reputation for being a supportive and welcoming environment for emerging artists, and has been praised for its inclusivity and diversity. The fair is known for showcasing independent and emerging artists who have yet to receive widespread recognition, and it has attracted a growing audience of art collectors, curators, and enthusiasts who are looking for something new and exciting in the contemporary art world.

 

The Clio project, born on the fifth floor of the Wolf Building in Chelsea in 2014, has outgrown its original digs in Chelsea, and graduated to a street-level space, beginning from the March 2018 edition. This move, as expected, has helped to guarantee greater exposure, more visitors, a higher percentage of sales, and basically more of everything compared to the first editions. For the last three years, Clio has been hosted into a contemporary luxury building at 550 W 29th street, in the exclusive Hudson Yard neighborhood.

 

Overall, Clio Art Fair is a must-see event for anyone interested in contemporary art. Whether you're a seasoned collector or a first-time visitor, the fair offers a welcoming and engaging experience that you won’t want to miss!

 

Adding to the innovative nature of its vision, Clio is the first art fair to accept primary crypto-values as a form of payment: Bitcoin, Ethereum since 2017; Doge since 2020. Furthermore, Clio has endorsed NFT Academy (Nftacademy.cc) since 2021.

 

 

Press Release Written in collaboration with ChatGPT

For the upcoming edition of Clio Art Fair, we are featuring a special section titled:

 

Losing Track of the Lost

Featuring Artists: Lori Horowitz, JLee MacKenzie, Carlo Sampietro, Francesca Schwartz,

Here and Then (Mark McGee & Diane Ponder)

Exploring the pain of homelessness, Losing Track of the Lost, a thought-provoking special section within Clio Art Fair's 15th edition, delves deep into the heart-wrenching reality of homelessness and the societal indifference that perpetuates it. Through a captivating collection of artworks, this section confronts the anguish faced by those without shelter, offering a poignant reflection on the lack of support in our cities.

Losing Track of the Lost challenges the notion that homeless individuals are merely "losers" by questioning our collective responsibility and urging us to acknowledge our shared vulnerability. By presenting striking visual narratives and immersive installations, the artists aim to ignite a dialogue about the systemic issues that contribute to homelessness and the urgent need for compassionate action.

Losing Track of the Lost invites viewers to confront their own perceptions and consider the city's role in addressing this pressing crisis. Through evocative pieces that explore themes of isolation, humanity, and social justice, the exhibition compels us to question why our cities are not doing enough to help those in need.

The artists behind this groundbreaking exhibition understand that homelessness is not an individual failure but a societal issue that demands collective action. By unraveling the complexities of homelessness through their art, they aim to dismantle the stigma associated with being homeless and foster empathy within our communities.

The exhibition challenges visitors to contemplate their role in creating a more inclusive and compassionate society. It seeks to spark a conversation about the responsibilities of governments, organizations, and individuals alike in addressing homelessness and working towards viable solutions.

Losing Track of the Lost serves as a poignant reminder that we are all interconnected, and the pain of homelessness affects us all. By exploring this profound human experience through art, the special section aims to inspire tangible change, encouraging us to extend a helping hand to those who have been left behind by society.

During our fair, we will be gladly hosting a series of performances revolving around the title
