Berlin Verge 08 - Bridge Art Fair Berlin, October 30th to November 2nd

Facelift, oil on canvas, 9 x 12 inches

Cain Schulte Gallery will be taking my work to the Bridge Art Fair in Berlin, Oct. 30 to Nov. 2.

Here's a little bit about Bridge Art Fair Berlin:

Bridge Berlin produces a fresh show of contemporary art that will include the newest, most innovative galleries from around the globe. Conceived as a boutique edition, Bridge Berlin will present a maximum of 30 galleries in this unique art-viewing setting. Understood as a place to develop the work of new artists by placing them in notable museum collections and cultivating critical reception, Bridge Berlin will play an ancillary role to the key art market efforts of our Miami, London, and New York editions.

Cities on the Verge. Artists on the Verge.
Bridge: Verge.

Verge editions of the Bridge Art Fair offer a cutting-edge approach to the ever-changing market and cultures of the global art world. Today's art world is no longer defined by a single city universally recognized as the center of it, but by numerous cities and multiple centers. Verge editions of the Bridge Art Fair are more experimental, often taking place in unconventional locations. They are also smaller-scale productions, including a lesser total number of exhibitors and programmatic elements. By definition a younger, more intimate fair, we have chosen Berlin as the launching pad for the first verge edition of the Bridge Art Fair, in recognition of its status as a city on the verge.
