PooL Art Fair, in a last minute move, is changing the dates of its upcoming 2013 NY fair from March 8-10, to May 10-12.
Founder of Frère Independent and PooL Art Fair, Thierry Alet, says about the move, "We think that March schedule of events (Fairs + VIP events) has saturated the market. At PooL we serve mainly the artists so we need the rest of the art professionals (Galleries, curators etc…) to be available and come meet the artists."
PooL isn't entirely abandoning the March art week, however, and will be hosting a benefit party / preview to help fund artists' booths. More details about the event are forthcoming.
PooL Art Fair, a unique hotel art fair devoted to emerging curators and un-represented artists, hosts editions in New York, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and Miami Beach.
