An Insider’s Guide to Art on Paper NYC
Art on Paper is an annual art fair held in New York City at Pier 36. In 2022, Art on Paper NYC is showcasing modern and contemporary artists who work on or with paper for its highly anticipated 8th year. The fair opened Thursday, September 8 and closes Sunday, September 11.
This four day event produced by Art Market Productions, held it’s VIP preview on Thursday evening. The fair features paper-based art from over 95 galleries, including works from Bang Geul Han, Yuko Nishikawa, and more.
Paper is a versatile and refreshingly light, simple medium. Three-dimensional works out of paper are particularly fascinating. Using such a light and flat two dimensional medium takes three dimensional pieces to another level.
Guests at the fair were greeted by large installations, specifically created for the fair. The paper-based programming throughout space featured innovative art by many big names of the contemporary art world. Dublin’s Stoney Road Press presented Leah Hewson’s “Kin Collection,” an interactive installation; Yuko Nishikawa of Cynthia Corbett Gallery presented a mobile composed of 100% repurposed waste paper in the main lounge of the fair; professor of NYU and former Head of the Department of Art, Angiola Churchill, presented “Pandora’s Box II” in collaboration with her gallery, Wook+Lattuada. Moreover, Accola Griefen Fine Art showcased an installation, made special for the site, of artist Bang Guel Han’s ongoing series Warp and Weft.
Guests mingled in the main lounges while enjoying drinks and light bites. The flow of the booths was immaculate. The expansive and light space felt just write considering the medium. The fair was sponsored by White Claw, Ferrari, Hine, and Artcloud to name a few.
Art on Paper NYC featured standout works by excellent artists including Alex Eckman-Lawn at Paradigm Gallery, Dave Eggers at Electric Works, Jungsan at Space 776, Josephine Taylor at Catharine Clark Gallery, and Kris Graves at Sasha Wold Projects.
