Replay: Affordable Art Fair

May 7, 2010 at 6:10 pm Leave a comment

When you’re on an entire floor packed with people and packed with even more art, it’s easy to get a little overwhelmed and start visually skimming. I know that this “sparknoting” of beautiful booths is hardly fair to curators, but I unfortunately slipped into that pattern today at AAF. This was definitely NOT because of the art – which was gorgeous – but because I only had a one-hour lunch break to fit it all in.

The interesting thing about speed-viewing art is that you become that much more aware of anything that sticks with you. Below are three works (not at AAF) by artists that I discovered at AAF today:

Nuts 4 Nuts by Hugo Garcia Urrutia + MK Semos (2009)
custom print on reclaimed wood flooring

Clyde by Julio Brujis (2005)
manipulated digital print

Queensboro Bridge #01 by Dominic Harris (2009)
digital print

May 7’s daily design idea is invest some time in appreciating a work of art, even if it happens long after initially viewing it.

Want to go see these artists at AAF for yourself? Swing by 7 W 34th Street this Saturday (12-8pm) or Sunday (12-5pm).
