VERGE NYC NOW ACCEPTING EXHIBITOR APPLICATIONS
For its third year in NY, VERGE will return to Manhattan to present an international roster of galleries in a nearly ten thousand square foot ground-level facility in the Greenwich Village neighborhood. Verge NYC will run concurrent with the inaugural Frieze NY, May 3-6, in the company of satellite fairs that have also grouped alongside the English fair transplant, including the inaugural NADA NY, Pulse and Red Dot. “This move back from last year’s Brooklyn location is a clear benefit to exhibitors and to our visitors,” says owner Michael Workman. “Given the recent shifts in the art fair market, it only makes sense that we would return to Manhattan; there’s a strong environment for art investment, high traffic and great accessibility.”
Applications for VERGE NYC are currently being accepted, with a split deadline. Apply by March 1 and each 200 sq ft booth is $7,500; by April 1, $8,500. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE APPLICATION.
