About THE(UN)FAIR 2014: established to celebrate passion rather than fashion!
Amidst the bustle of Armory Arts Week, THE(UN)FAIR rekindles the guerila-style art show; a carefully curated exhibit made possible by the cooperation and collaboration of cutting-edge artists, supportive space owners, keen-eyed curators & many supportive sponsors.
In contrast to the maze of cookie-cutter, white-booth art fairs, THE(UN)FAIR lets participants take a breather from the fair frenzy to have the most memorable, fun art experience of this art-filled week. Last year’s innovative installations, performance art, original artwork & participatory pieces brought raves literally from around the world-2014 will be bigger and better. 1000’s will discover & explore a cohesive, experiential indoor and outdoor environment curated by Jennifer Wallace helming nAscent Art (a great resource linking artists & collectors) & HK: ArtiST Festival alumni who graciously opened her home & private art works) + Mikel Glass.
The curatorial theme for 2014 is “Exploring the Divide”. Mindful of the current climate of political and social polarization, THE(UN)FAIR will pull together art and people with disparate views to create an environment to consider what connects & divides us. Additional inspiration stems from our location. Manhattan’s West 52nd Street is a neighborhood in transition, one block away from one of the most expensive luxury residential developments in the world, yet around the corner from a non-profit helping residents of affordable housing. Leaving The Armory Show at Pier 92, thousands stream down West 52nd Street to find the best surprise of their arts week.

General description THEN more terrific shows & opportunities! In its 15 years, The Armory Show, America’s leading fine art fair devoted to the most important art of the 20th and 21st centuries, has become an international institution, bringing artists, galleries, collectors, critics & curators from all over the world. It strives to take advantage of this yearly convergence of the world’s top collectors & art enthusiasts by proudly consolidating and promoting a diverse selection of NYC’s own cultural offerings.
In celebration of New York’s unparalleled artistic communities, Armory Arts Week works to highlight the distinct art scenes of our city’s multiple neighborhoods. This concept of a week of arts related events was born out of the festivities and widely felt excitement generated by The Armory Show, formalized with the support of the city in 2009. Since then, Armory Arts Week has continued to expand its reach throughout all five boroughs of New York. From elaborate benefit parties to interactive public programs, promoting exceptional arts-related events. Armory Arts Week Audience: attracting residents of NYC, the Tri-State area + visitors from all over the world! With this year’s Focus on China, the # of foreign attendees promises to expand!

He constantly seeks to explore the ways of western art that inspire him, in combination with Tibetan motifs and patterns. He aims to bring the energy of abstract expressionism in harmony with the meditative and reflective spirit of Buddhism. Using the unicorn as a metaphor for transformation, he sees change as an instrument for liberation: “Apart from being ruthless, change gives hope to us Tibetans. We have to grow out of our present situation, as the lotus grows out of the mud, by accepting change, nourishing the Buddha nature of ourselves in the modern world, & revealing our faults fearlessly. If we grow within ourselves, we gain freedom.”
