On the Fringe
New York City is home to a new, younger set of gallerists curating shows in unusual spaces and featuring work that is bold, provocative and exuberant.
These young, emerging art dealers and curators are shaking things up in New York’s gallery world by setting up in previously louche neighborhoods or showcasing work that expand the boundaries of art.
“And I think that even today, New York has more of this unexpected quality around every corner than any place else. It’s something quite extraordinary.” – Robert Rauschenberg
