From Fridge Art Fair Founder Eric Ginsburg:
There will be a Fridge!!!
Thank you for the love and light of your ongoing support. In times like these I realize how grateful I am, and how beautiful so much of life that I don’t often remember to look at can be… We have been planning a heartfelt return to our roots on the Lower East Side. In light of events we will announce new dates when we know it will be safe for all to gather.
Fridge is all about celebrating how Art brings us together and gets us looking in all the right places again. We WILL CELEBRATE Fridge Art Fair NYC this year, for now, please be safe and know we love you !!!
Eric talks a LES little history and a tribute to Gallery OneTwentyEight and Kazuko Miyamoto:
Listen to “Fridge Art Fair Makes Lemonade” on Spreaker.
Updates on the schedule, an interim benefit art sale, and call for exhibitors (tagline same as 2013 — Can you fit into the Fridge?) for Fridge’s 8th NYC edition, CELEBRATION, will be posted here and at FridgeArtFair.com
Artist David Fenn has been exhibiting with Fridge since the first edition in 2013, and he also collaborates with the Fair’s original host at Gallery OneTwentyEight, Kazuko Miyamoto, as the “D” in K&D. In his words:
If it weren’t for the FriDge, Kazuko and I would have never met. The peculiar set of circumstances for my getting to the Fridge is another story. Fridge is yes in the face of no. It is “why not” when others wonder “do we dare.” For me, it is art in defiance of what “everyone thinks “art” things should be”.
I have met surprising, uncompromising, wonderful , extraordinary, beautiful, serious and less than serious artists because of Eric’s wonderful and embracing spirit of all.
Working with Kazuko is always amazing. I learn so much from her. I am fireworks and slappery and she is precision and decision. She tames me and I think she has become more free. Our installation work together at Elizabeth Park is indicative of this. And definitely, our latest work, “Melting.”
I think we are artists in that we are as we are and do what we do and even in making a simple soup it is art. There is some planning, some care, some whimsy and music and dance and something serious too.
A lot like the FridGe.
