NEW YORK, NY.- Moniker International Art Fair
presents its New York debut with some of the worlds most renowned urban & contemporary artists. The four-day event, May 3-6, is the first international outing for the fair, which has for the past nine years built a reputation as Londons must-visit festival for art collectors.
Held in the cavernous industrial space of Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse, Monikers highly-curated, hand-picked lineup features 27 exhibitors presenting the best of international galleries and individual artists, including acclaimed emerging talent from both sides of the pond.
Brooklyn is the perfect place to make our international debut, as it has always had a long history with urban and contemporary art." said Tina Ziegler, Fair Director. "Weve been careful to avoid the trappings of elite art fair traditions and ensure that Moniker welcomes everyone equally. Inclusivity and a sense of global collaborative effort are right at the heart of our art movement. The values that are important to the art we celebrate are equally important to the fair as a whole."
Known for producing thematic fairs, its stateside edition will have the theme of the carnival. Embracing the carnivals interactive, immersive, and participatory elements, Monikers 2018 New York debut will offer a sensational environment for visitors to appreciate the excitement of this variety of work.
The artists presented at Moniker are pioneers within the urban art scene, many of whom have won worldwide acclaim for their work on canvas and concrete alike, with commissions by governments and city councils to bring urban landscapes to life. Complimenting Monikers exhibitor list is a lineup of immersive solo artist installations by an international selection of urban and contemporary talent.
