Four years ago NY-based artist Eric Ginsburg, known for expressionism focused on animals, had an idea to create an art fair during New Yorkâ€™s Frieze week that was different from the others. His goal was to create an intimate space for art and art lovers. When asked if he was planning on putting on a Fridge During Art Week in Miami right after the inaugural Fridge Art Fair ended, the answer was â€˜Why not?â€™! Hence Fridge Art Fair during Art Basel was born!
Fridge is an art fair with a heart and passion. Itâ€™s been called everything from Raw to a boutique fair. In Ericâ€™s words, â€˜This year weâ€™re proud to present artists whose work is authentic and personal, with messages for everyone.â€™ As in past fairs (with this being the 4th) the question posed to artists who participate is always â€œCan you fit it into the Fridge?â€
Fridge Fair at Art Basel Miami Beach 2016 will take place at The Betsy Hotel with an amended title of â€œA Curated Mini Fridgeâ€, indicating the (even) smaller space used to exhibit and celebrate. The Betsy Hotel (thebetsyhotel.com) is a four star-four diamond hotel in the luxury boutique space with a unique commitment to philanthropy, arts, culture, and education. Partnering with Fridge Fair aligns perfectly with The Betsyâ€™s mission.
The public is cordially invited to The Betsy Hotel Presents â€œA Curated Mini Fridgeâ€ in the Underground Gallery, located behind the front desk, and down the stairs. The work is for sale and the gallery space is open 24/7. For more information contact artsandculture@thebetsyhotel. com or firstname.lastname@example.orgThank you for using Soul Of Miami!
