Executive Director of Hamptons Fine Art Fair, Rick Friedman commented, This is the elegantly curated boutique show that Hamptonites have been seeking for years. As the only fine art fair that is held inside an actual art museum and grounds, our guests will feel a sense of luxury and privilege as they enter. Friedman continues, We are also the first fair to present both an in-person version as well as a virtual reality version, that stays live for months. Thus, we augment the viewership of the galleries substantially, from those on the East End, to art enthusiasts across the nation and world.
Hamptons Fine Art Fair will momentously transform the grounds of Southampton Arts Center into a dynamic world-class art fair by utilizing the entire historic building and plush grounds, featuring a Sculpture Park, three dramatic climate-controlled pavilions, including The Pollock Pavilion, sponsored by Pincus Plastic Surgery, de Kooning Pavilion, and an elegant VIP Lounge. In The Pollock Pavilion, fairgoers will have the opportunity to enjoy original works from the former East Hampton resident and view a replica of the famous Jackson Pollock paint-stained studio barn floor. The Sculpture Park will feature impressive works by Louise Bourgeois, Larry Rivers, David Salle, Bill King, Hans Van de Bovenkamp, Joel Pearlman, Audrey Flack, Chakaia Booker, and others.
Starting on August 15, 2021, HFAF exhibitors will have the chance to upload their artworks to a virtual gallery in 2D and 3D formats using artPRESENT, pioneered during Hamptons Virtual Art Fair, providing as close to an authentic experience as possible. All artworks will be displayed in high-resolution detail. The online fair will remain live until November 30, 2021.
