For the 11th year, the Independent Art Fair is diving the visitor into a new space, designed to welcome masterpieces, and offering a stunning view over the East River. The architecture is providing an incredible backdrop for artists to get inspired, for gallerists to curate projects and for visitors to experience and discover new contemporary art styles.

In addition to in-person presentations, Independent Art Fair also launched an online view room for artists to share stories, to give voice to artists we never heard before and to make new connections.

This year, the artistic program is loaded. Independent is launching a new format to broaden artists' opportunities to be heard, through interviews, podcasts, artists' takeovers, presenting their work in their studio, and never-seen-before performances.
