DESCRIPTION

INDEPENDENT strives to reexamine traditional art fair models and methods of presentation, in response to the changing attitudes and growing challenges for artists, galleries, non-profits, curators and collectors as the experience of viewing and interacting with contemporary art in a group context.

The international list of participating galleries and non-profits was developed through conversations and shared conceptual engagements as opposed to the application process that typically characterizes the contemporary art fair. In so doing, the participants enter into a consortium of shared ideas and vision for their approach to their contemporary art practice.

INDEPENDENT was conceived by Elizabeth Dee (Elizabeth Dee, New York and founder of X Initiative) and Darren Flook (Hotel, London). The 2011 edition of Independent was developed in conjunction with creative advisor Matthew Higgs (White Columns, New York) as well as co-directors Jayne Drost and Laura Mitterrand.
