40 Years of Artexpo New York - What Will the 2018 Edition Bring?

April 17, 2018

For four decades, Artexpo New York has been building up to become world’s largest international fine art marketplace, under the guidance of the Redwood Media Group. Changing the way art is sold and bought, this event brings together more than 5000 trade representatives every year, including gallerists, dealers, interior designers, architects, corporate art buyers and art and framing retailers.

Following its successful streak, Artexpo New York 2018 will once again offer “three shows within one venue” measuring 135,000 square feet in size with [SOLO], highlighting established and independent emerging artists, and [FOTO SOLO], a show featuring fine art photography.

Let’s see what we can expect from the 40th anniversary of Artexpo New York this year.

Artexpo New York 2018

[MAGNIFY]

As the curatorial theme of the 40th edition, Artexpo New York chose [MAGNIFY] which examines four decades of artistic expression through a retrospective lens.

Commenting on the topic, Redwood Media Group CEO Eric Smith said:

[MAGNIFY] as our curatorial theme for this year’s expo offers a retrospective lens through which four decades of artistic excellence will be represented, examined and immortalized during all three shows. With giant canvases, monumental sculptures and immersive installations, Artexpo New York is going to be larger than life - both in scale and conception.

Indeed, Artexpo has been intensifying the discourse on today’s most pressing industry challenges and magnifying the very best the fine art world has to offer.
