Fridge Art Fair is pleased to announce its third Miami Edition, The Fridge Fudge Pop, hosted at Holiday Inn Oceanside 43rd and Collins (4300 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL).
Fridge Art Fair’s philosophy is to make the art fair scene accessible to diverse exhibitors and visitors alike. “Our booth fees are low,” said Eric Ginsburg, the Artist and Founding Director known throughout the world for his Dog and Cat paintings. Admission is ten dollars but on the door policy is: “No one is ever turned away. Generous donations will help keep this a reality.”
Fridge Art Fair celebrates creative freedom and diversity, encouraging exhibitors to explore all possibilities within their spaces as, in the words of Fridge Curator Linda DiGusta, “exploration, energetic participation and enthusiastic support create transformative energy, rules kill spirit.” Exhibitors are drawn from the world art community and include dealers, collectives and unrepresented artists – many “regulars,” and some new to Fridge.
This year the Fair welcomes a major collaboration with Art Shape Mammoth, who will curate and present large-scale sculpture, performances – dance and movement artist Laura Gordon will work with the large-scale paintings of new Fridge artist Iliyan Ivanov as a backdrop and Anna Marie Shogren will dance a durational performance – and guest artists from Shanghai, China in addition to their core program.
Special presentations also include an exhibition by students of Virginia Erdie’s youth art program in Miami, a screening of Katherine Delaney’s documentary/love letter to the drag world, Charmed Life, and works of Kazuko Miyamoto and Eva LeWitt presented by Gallery 128, the Lower East Side fixture and magnet that hosted the inaugural Fridge Art Fair in May 2013.
Founder renowned artist Eric Ginsburg http://www.worldoferic.com will present his signature pet portraits and accept commissions to benefit BARC Animal Rescue in Brooklyn, NY – bring a photo of Fido or Fluffy and save a life! His work will be featured in the exhibition.
Fridge Art Fair, a play on “Freeze,” was born in 2013 on the Lower East Side, as a satellite of Frieze New York. The inaugural Fair was filled to capacity with exhibitors who answered Founder Eric Ginsburg’s challenge, “Can you fit into the Fridge?” at Kazuko Miyamoto’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.
