Art on Paper returns to Manhattan's Lower East Side in March 2016, building on the success of the fair's inaugural 2015 edition. The first Art on Paper New York welcomed 20,000 visitors to Pier 36 over the fair's four buzzing days. Participating galleries saw strong sales to important collections as the public urgently engaged with the curated exhibitions. The fair's medium-driven focus lent itself to significant projects - unique moments that set Art on Paper apart and established a new and important destination for the arts in New York City. Working in concert with Beneficiary Partner Brooklyn Museum, Creative Director Sasha Wolf, and sponsor The Wall Street Journal, Art on Paper's second edition will feature special projects that push the boundaries of its celebrated medium.
Visitors to Art on Paper New York will be met with a powerful installation of Klein Sun Gallery artist Li Hongbo's paper sculptures. Recently exhibited at the SCAD Museum of Art as part of Irons for the Ages, Flowers for the Day, the work is composed of tools of war made from brightly colored honeycombed paper reshaped into delicate abstract forms. Art on Paper looks forward to a second year of artistic exploration, featuring a robust program of installations and an expanded exhibitor list of modern and contemporary galleries from around the world.
