The PooL Art Fair is different from all other art fairs in the US. Although there is a tradition in France of independent art fairs, starting from the famous Courbetâ€™s Salon des Independents, PooL is the premiere fair in the US dedicated to artists that do not have representation in galleries.

The show will now take place at the Carlton Hotel on Collins Avenue and 14th Street. Of the many fairs in town at this time, PooL is the only show to present exclusively great-unrepresented artists. The simple, modest approach of the PooL Art Fair offers an exciting alternative to the “Art Fair” experience for dealers and collectors as well as the general public. PooL’s purpose is to create a meeting ground for outstanding artists, primarily those who do not yet have gallery representation. Contemporary art dealers, artist agents, emerging galleries, artists’ collectives, and non-profit organizations may also apply to participate as exhibitors. The fair serves as an invaluable resource for the artistic community and the general public.
Exhibitors will be given a room at the hotel in which to display their work, creating a unique and intimate setting. They will share with the public their most recent works: unique, original, and challenging art.
PooL is produced by Frere Independent.
This not-for-profit art organization provides new avenues of dissemination and widespread visibility to emerging artists who do not currently have gallery representation.
