Moniker International Art Fair is heading to New York City, opening during New York Frieze week, at Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse in Brooklyn, NY.
Moniker has established itself as the leading fair dedicated to Urban Art and its related subculture, bringing together these genres’ most influential galleries, well-established names, and emerging voices. Founded in 2010, the fair has grown to its current prominence under the leadership of Fair Director Tina Ziegler.
“Moniker has dedicated its eight-year history to championing urban art in the UK. It was only fitting to present our first international edition in Brooklyn, a place revered and respected as the home of urban culture. We’re thrilled for the opportunity to be a part of the NYC art fair circuit, and to bring London’s community of artists and galleries to new audiences as part of our expansion”
Known for producing thematic fairs, Moniker inaugurates its stateside edition under the theme of the carnival. Embracing the carnival’s interactive, immersive, and participatory elements, Moniker’s 2018 New York debut will will offer a sensational environment for visitors to appreciate the excitement of this variety of work.
Moniker’s U.S. edition will offer a unique opportunity for American audiences to experience the highest quality of New Contemporary and Urban Art from an international perspective, connecting a strong American collector-base with many European galleries that have never before presented in the United States. Many U.K. galleries will be exhibiting at Moniker for the first time, marking a robust expansion in the fair’s program.
Greenpoint Terminal’s industrial, warehouse aesthetic and open floor plan provides an ideal context to present the diversity of work to be displayed at Moniker. Located in the heart of Brooklyn, the surrounding Greenpoint neighborhood boasts a number of highly regarded galleries, delicious eateries, and hip retailers.
