Call for Entries – Select Fair New York City

Deadline February 14: SELECT will be held at the former Dia Building on 22nd Street in Chelsea. Our prime location places SELECT directly in the densely populated gallery district, adjacent to the highline and steps from the Chelsea Piers.
CONCEPT
SELECT | NYC will take place in the former home of Dia: Chelsea, which houses one of the most iconic site-specific pieces of art from the Minimalist Movement: Dan Flavin’s Untitled, 1996. This will be the last year that this historic building- the site of so many important art historical interventions- will stand as is. SELECT’s presence in this space marks the dawn of a new paradigm within the Contemporary art community. Thusly, the curatorial theme of SELECT | NYC is to look both back and forward with the impact art movements have had within their own context, and dually, the impacts that movements have had within social circumstances.
In light of this theme, the SELECT team encourages exhibitors to consider the ideas of historically influenced work, the future of the art world, and socially engaged artistic practices.
