Overview

Art New York presents a selection of the most influential, historically significant and entertaining galleries dedicated to contemporary art, a personal selection of the spaces, events and institutions that shape New York's art scene. That scene is constantly in flux. One of the most significant changes of recent years has seen an exodus of galleries from SoHo - a district only discovered by the art world in the 1970s - to Chelsea as real-estate prices soared, largely because of the success of the galleries originally attracted there by cheap rents. Even cheaper rents in Williamsburg, across the Brooklyn Bridge, attracted more new galleries and, again, affordable accommodation and studio space have quickly become things of the past. The New York art scene is based on the existence of a wealthy and shrewd market, constantly on the look-out for new stars. There are some big personalities on the scene on all sides: the artists, the dealers, and the patrons. Art New York provides starting points for discovering this world.
