CONTEXT Art New York 2017

The second edition of CONTEXT New York will take place May 3-7, 2017 in Manhattan. The fair will join Art New York at Pier 94, located on the Hudson River at 12th Avenue at 55th Street. A VIP Private Preview will kick off art week, May 3 in New York City before Frieze’s opening. CONTEXT New York will provide collectors with a leading alternative fair to acquire important works of contemporary art.

Like its hugely successful sister fair, CONTEXT Art Miami, which launched during Miami Art Week in 2012, CONTEXT New York’s open atmosphere will create meaningful dialogue between collectors, participating galleries, and artists. CONTEXT New York will provide the ultimate platform for both the veteran and unseasoned collector to enjoy and acquire mid-career, emerging and cutting-edge talent by sixty participating emerging and established galleries during one of the most important weeks for contemporary art in New York City.

The combined efforts of CONTEXT New York and Art New York provide a unique and alternative opportunity for leading primary dealers and their artists to be marketed and promoted internationally during one of the most important weeks for contemporary art in America.

CONTEXT New York and Art New York will utilize Pier 94’s entire 133,000 square-foot exhibition hall. Situated on the West Side Highway, Pier 94 is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan within close proximity to the Chelsea art district, museums and major auction houses.

From Ravi Zupa: This is a variation of the “Opposable Thumbs” series. These are all military musicians. It’s a marvel that such beautiful music can come from such painful and horrific circumstances. People can’t help but make beautiful art. The background landfill that they are standing in is a continuous single environment when hung in this order. The text at the bottom of each piece comes from the Kalevala, which is the Finnish epic poem, sort of their equivalent of Beowulf or the Iliad. The style of the line work is that of German Renaissance block printers like Hans Holbein and Albrecht Dürer.

Alison the Lacemaker, one of the Swoon’s most iconic portraits which debuted over ten years ago at the artist’s eponymous New York solo show with Jeffrey Deitch, is presented here as a beautifully vivid multicolor and metallic gold 4 color silkscreen on handmade tea-stained jute paper.
Swoon's description of Alison the Lacemaker:
“When I’m drawing a portrait, I will often have an art-historical reference somewhere in my mind. It’s usually not that I set out to make a reference; just that when I’m drawing, I’ll find a similarity in spirit or composition and let it keep the portrait company while I’m drawing. For Alison the Lacemaker, I was drawing a portrait of my friend sewing when Vermeer’s Lacemaker emerged as a natural muse. The portrait is in honor of theLacemaker, but also a separate nod to the ability of early European woodcut masters—like Jost Amman in his noted depiction of Adam and Eve—to tell such poignant stories about the knowledge of our own mortality.”
