If art fairs are most often associated with money-making Manhattan and the culture of prestige and shopping that the island of commerce has perfected, the borough of Brooklyn has been the creative hub of the city for most of this century, particularly as a place where artists actually live, rather than simply work or visit.
Over the years, many art fairs have ventured to Brooklyn but this Frieze Week there are three different Brooklyn fairs going on at the same time, a pretty unique occurance. I’m not sure if this is a sign of things to come (I doubt it), but they definitely point to a type of independently minded fair that seems to be a natural fit for quickly gentrifying Brooklyn.
Moniker Art Fair (Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse, 73 West Street, Greenpoint, Brooklyn), The Other Art Fair (Brooklyn Expo Center, 72 Noble Street, Greenpoint, Brooklyn), and the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair (Pioneer Works, 159 Pioneer Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn) all continue until Sunday, May 6, 2018.
