Art Fairs are now 46% percent of the global art market, but most small and medium sized galleries are shut out.
Art Fair 14C was created with the mission to support smaller galleries, as well as artists who may not have gallery representation. As an initiative of the Jersey City Arts Council, the art fair experience is offered at cost* to galleries and artists.
“Art fairs freak me out. They are hellish places where money and art have sex in public.”
Jerry Saltz wrote those words in 2012 in New York magazine before explaining that the Dependent Art Fair at the Comfort Inn Hotel in Manhattan was a delightful and funky exception.
Art Fair 14C takes place at the Hyatt Regency at Exchange Place, so money and art will be able to ‘get a room.’
The world of fine art can seem inaccessible, abstruse and elitist, filled with language, codes and rules that can feel inexplicable.
Art Fair 14C is located on the waterfront of Jersey City – accessible, open and egalitarian. This will be a weekend of fun for the visitor, with extraordinary and surprising art to explore around every corner. And for the artists and exhibitors – a collegial 4-day slumber party.
*How can Art Fair 14C offer galleries and artists an art fair experience at cost?
Art Fair 14C has a unique business model. We are an initiative of a 501c3 non-profit, the Jersey City Arts Council, and are blessed with extraordinary sponsors and partners who support our mission to strengthen, and expand the reach of, the visual arts.
In particular, Art Fair 14C is grateful for the generosity of the Hyatt Regency hotel, Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, the Exchange Place Alliance and the City of Jersey City.The fee to apply is just $35, and accepted exhibitors pay only the price of their hotel room.
