Fridge Art Fair â€“
Fridge Art Fair was born in 2013 on New Yorkâ€™s Lower East Side. The inaugural Fair was filled to capacity with exhibitors who answered Founder Eric Ginsburgâ€™s challenge, â€œCan you fit into the Fridge?â€ at Kazuko Miyamotoâ€™s small but storied storefront, Gallery OneTwentyEight. The Fair has gathered a growing following of exhibitors, sponsors and visitors through two more New York editions, as well as two previous Miami fairs in 2013 and 2014. So far, each Fridge Art Fair has coincided with Frieze New York in May and Art Basel Miami in December.
Fridge Art Fair is the boutique, soft sell, dog-friendly satellite fair dubbed as, â€œThe baby who has refused to obey orders to stand outside the door while the adults confabulate inside,â€ by Artinfo.
Fridge Art Fair Founder and Artist Eric Ginsburg, known for the uniquely soulful and painterly qualities of his portraits, Eric credits Sol LeWill as a patron and friend who commissioned works, as well as a mentor, and, along with Eric’s “pen pal” William Wegman, as â€œkind of a hero.â€
Ginsburg studied with Maureen Gallace at NYU and received his MFA from Columbia University in 2005. His works are found in public & private collections around the wold including: Herb & Dorothy Vogel (now in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Art);Galerie Nieu Schoten (Ten Boom Museum, The Netherlands); the New Britain Museum of American Art; The Cartin Collection; Cindy Sherman; William Wegman; Lisa Spellman; and the Francis J. Greenburger Collection, Paula Cooper and the LeWitt Collection.
This edition of Fridge Art Fair Miami is being sponsored by Ball & Chain, Barlington Group, Charles Group Hotels, Lose Style Events, Publix, and Holiday Inn returns as the Fairâ€™s premier sponsor after co-hosting Fridge New York 2015.
