After its first two years, the Fair has already become a must see for collectors and fans of Contemporary Art. A virtual pop-up museum of modern art valued at over $100 million dollars from over 60 international galleries will be presented at the exhibit hall at the Palm Springs Convention Center.
The extraordinary exhibition curates a dynamic review ranging from Karel Appel, Le Corbusier, Henry Jackson, Frank Stella, Raymond Jonson, Picasso, Kenneth Noland, Jennifer Bartlett, Chul Hyan Ahn, David Middlebrook, and many more.
With the recent art auction house sales breaking records in New York for contemporary art, coupled with the frenzy of buying at Art Basel Miami week, it appears this genre has a renewed popularity. “This is Contemporary and Modern art that is alive and in the moment,” says producer Rick Friedman, “Collectors perceive that art is not only beauty, but also as an alternative investment.”
One piece that will be dazzling the audience will be Steve Maloney’s Ride-em-Cowboy, a sculpture created from a Bell Jet Ranger Helicopter and a Long Horn Steer. “Palm Springs is bigger than life and we felt Steve’s piece captures both contemporary and future,” continues Friedman.
The exhibition also includes expert panel discussions that are standing room only. “If you are buying your first piece or have a collection that is museum worthy, the panels are there to inform and create dialog about art, collecting and the artists represented,”
