Art on Paper

Absolut Art x Art on Paper

Art on Paper returns to downtown Manhattan’s Pier 36 from March 5—8, 2020 for the fair’s eagerly anticipated sixth edition. With over 90 galleries featuring top modern and contemporary paper-based art, Art on Paper’s medium driven focus lends itself to significant projects—unique moments that have set the fair apart and established an important destination for the arts in New York City. Art on Paper 2020 marks the expansion of the fair’s reach into the international collecting community and the renewal of partnerships with the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, Asia Society, and many more important cultural institutions.

Absolut Art x Art on Paper meet and greet

Art fairs have grown in number all over the world, with nearly three hundred happening each year—and that’s for a reason. They create an unparalleled opportunity for collectors to meet with art dealers and other professionals in the field and see dozens or hundreds of artists’ works in one place.

Absolut Art is offering a unique opportunity at this year’s Art on Paper fair: six of the artists whose work we are offering will be present, eager to share a drink and chat with you about their creations. You’ll find Manolo Campion, Austin Eddy, LilKool, Makeba KEEBS Rainey, James Thomas, and Lisa Törner on the scene on Saturday, March 7, so please join us—and bring your questions for the artists!

Sunday, March 8
1:00   A live illustration session by Shantell Martin
Martin has created her own world that bridges fine art, performance art, technology and the everyday experience: conversations, objects and places. Underlying Martin’s work is a quest for identity — her own, discovered and refined in the development of her characteristic style, and that of the viewer, engaged by Martin’s direct questioning and further explored in her winding lines. Join us for some drinks as Shantell creates an original piece in our booth at the fair.
