Clio Art Fair is delighted to share the opening of its 16th edition and 10th year anniversary

May 2 - 5, 2024

@ 520 West 24th Street, New York, NY 10011 

 

Clio Art Fair is a contemporary art fair held biannually that focuses on showcasing independent artists without exclusive gallery representation in NYC. The fair is known for its democratic and inclusive approach to art and its emphasis on collaborating with artists from a wide range of backgrounds and styles.

 

Clio Art Fair, which takes its name from the the Greek Muse of History, was launched in 2014 by Alessandro Berni to offer a fresh and alternative perspective on the established art fair model and to challenge the traditional art market’s methodologies. Clio is an alternative to larger, historical art fairs which are often dominated by blue chip galleries and high-priced artworks.

 

Clio Art Fair aims to create an intimate and approachable environment for both artists and collectors. Each independent artist is given their own exhibition space and the possibility to interact directly, without filters, with the collectors and art lovers that visit the space.

 

The fair features a diverse range of contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, and installations. It also offers a performance program which, for this edition, is reflecting on the theme "Hidden Love".

 

Clio Art Fair, originally located on the fifth floor of the Wolf Building in Chelsea, has later graduated to a street-level space in 2018. Coming to you this year, for the first time, in a new location, in a contemporary luxury building at 520 W 24th street, in the exclusive Hudson Yard neighborhood.

 

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.

 

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. It has attracted a growing audience of art collectors, curators, and enthusiasts who are looking for a fresh and outside of the box perspective on the contemporary art world. Overall, Clio Art Fair is a must-see event for anyone interested in 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!

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

 

Why War?

Featuring Artists: Qinza Najm, Raisa Nosova, Ola Rondiak

Why War? A question that echoes throughout human history’s evolution, one that dwells into the darkest recesses of our collective nature. Wars arise from a complex interplay of factors, encompassing political ambitions, economic disparities, cultural clashes, and territorial disputes. War and conflict is a manifestation of humanity’s struggle for power, resources, and a consequence of the failure to reconcile differences through peaceful means.

The contemporary era is still marked by the inescapable persistence of war, with conflicts that have multiplied and infiltrated every aspect of our lives. While the term “war” often evokes thoughts of conflicts between nations or entire populations, it can manifest in various forms on multiple fronts of daily life.

Yet, in the face of such profound and often devastating consequences, the quest for understanding persists—a quest that challenges us to explore alternatives, cultivate empathy, and ultimately strive for a world where the question “Why War?” is replaced with a resounding call for peace and diplomacy.

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

Hidden Love

Love is a universal force, yet, so often it remains hidden in the shadows, veiled by societal norms, prejudices, and fears.

We invite you to join us on a journey that delves into the profound complexities of “Hidden Love” through a set

of mesmerizing performances.

 

In a world that often fails to understand the intricate threads of affection that bind two or more souls together,

the performers have been invited to share with us the poignant stories of passion, desire, unspoken emotions,

and the courage to love in the face of adversity.

 

Join us as we unveil the stories of those who have been passionate, defying societal expectations.

Experience the raw, unfiltered emotions that come to life, and let us question the reasons why so many hearts have

been forced to conceal their feelings.

 

Let’s celebrate love in all its forms, uncover the secrets that have been locked away, and discover

the beauty that emerges when love is allowed to shine.
