The 33rd edition of Affordable Art Fair New York returns to the Metropolitan Pavilion this spring, featuring a diverse, cutting-edge range of thousands of artworks from over 70 handpicked local, national, and international galleries.

From Brooklyn to Paris, Manhattan to Mumbai, Affordable Art Fair’s standing as a beloved New York City fair is evident in the breadth of galleries wanting to travel from all over the world to showcase their artists. Expect names such as Mark Vessey, Cristina Vergano, and Jocelyn Châteauvert alongside emerging artists to discover before their careers take off.

Among the Spring 2023 highlights is the Young Talent Exhibition, a special program curated by Arts Gowanus director Johnny Thornton, which showcases emerging artistic talent from Brooklyn and the Greater New York Metro area. Khae “K” Haskell — an interdisciplinary visual artist, draftsperson, and illustrator — will create “Effloresce,” a site-specific installation accompanied by a series of mixed media collages. The artists’ work references New York City, where they seek out unwanted and overlooked details to create their mixed media pieces: Rotting plant and animal matter; what grows between the cracks in the sidewalk; and the various stages of botanical life found in yards, parks, and grocery stores.

Their 2-FOR-1 ticket offer is available for General Admission, Art After Dark, Stroller Hours, and all concessions. Or, opt to celebrate with the team all weekend long with an All-Access Pass to enjoy complimentary drinks, a buzzy atmosphere, and an exclusive first look at the fair during the Private View, taking place March 22, 6–9pm (ET).
