Independent is pleased to announce the participants for the ninth annual edition of Independent New York, which will take place once again at Spring Studios in Tribeca from March 8–11, 2018.
The 2018 edition of Independent New York will include 50 international galleries and non- profits, representing 17 cities worldwide. Each year Independent rotates 30-40% of its galleries to encourage fresh perspectives and introduce unfamiliar artists to new audiences; this year’s participants include 19 new exhibitors, ranging from emerging galleries to those with decades- long legacies.
Matthew Higgs, the director of White Columns, will return as the Independent’s founding curatorial advisor, curating a forum that is an authentic reflection of the gallery landscape and encourages innovative approaches to fair presentations. The 2018 edition of Independent New York will include many solo, two-artist, and site-driven projects, featuring new work created specifically for Independent as well as scholarly historical presentations.
