Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) July 22, 2015
ART INDEPENDENT, launching January 29-31, 2016 in downtown Los Angeles, as the first and only high-visibility platform for independent artists. An artist-only fair, ART INDEPENDENT is a forum for direct exchange of ideas and contact between artists, collectors and art professionals. The inaugural edition of the art fair will also feature specialized programs including panel discussions, lectures, roundtables, and docent tours.
ART INDEPENDENT is the sister fair to PHOTO INDEPENDENT, which launched in 2014, and was the first photography-only artist fair of its kind, open to emerging and professional, unsigned or under-appreciated photographers.
Produced by Fabrik Media, an LA-based multifaceted publishing and marketing agency, ART INDEPENDENT’s goal — to connect professional and emerging artists with larger global audiences — is in line with the company’s overarching mission to support and provide a regional and international network for artists. ART INDEPENDENT’s annual showcase will provide curators, galleries, collectors, editors, and arts enthusiasts the opportunity to discover the best artistic talent today, and acquire exciting new works.
“Art Independent was developed to fill a void in the art fair marketplace,” states Chris Davies, President of Fabrik Media, and Founder of ART INDEPENDENT and PHOTO INDEPENDENT. “Extremely talented artists were being under-represented within the conventional art fair structure. Our art fairs provide a valuable platform for these artists, who don’t normally have the opportunity to exhibit within a traditional art fair context. We are proud to be launching ART INDEPENDENT, our second endeavor in Los Angeles, a city with a passionate and highly active creative community.”
ART INDEPENDENT is currently accepting submissions from fine artists worldwide. For more information about ART INDEPENDENT, please visit http://www.artindependentfair.com
