By: fridge art fair
Always the Fair to err on the side of not taking itself too seriously, Fridge Art Fair is pleased to honor the verve and vision of the great Frida Kahlo concurrent with the final days of the exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, encompassing both May Day (day one of the Fridge Art Fair) and Cinco de Mayo. Kicking off with The Fridge Art Fair: Frozen "Margarita-Frida:"
"I must fight with all my strength so that the little positive things that my health allows me to do might be pointed toward helping the revolution. The only real reason for living." – Frida Kahlo

Fridge Art Fair Founder and Artist Eric Ginsburg (

Fridge Art Fair:
Inspired by founder Eric Ginsburg's desire to give visibility to more worthy artists at key magnet times and locations, Fridge Art Fair (the name is a play on Frieze) was born in 2013 at Lower East Side's historic first gallery, Kazuko Miyamoto's Gallery 128, The boutique, soft sell, dog-friendly satellite fair once dubbed by Artinfo as "the baby who has refused to obey orders to stand outside the door while the adults confabulate inside," presents annual editions in Miami and New York.
In addition to hosting Fridge, NU Hotel Supports local Brooklyn artists in three ways. Next is our NU Perspectives Mural Program. This program also iterates quarterly, where we invite an artist to submit a proposal for a mural to be painted in one of our guest rooms.
Natalie Fisk Fisk began her art practice in set design, painting large scale works for theater productions and has since grown to create a style that produces works in the form of murals, collage, drawing, painting, paper sculpture, and hand cut paper picado. She has been commissioned by companies such as Rudy's Barbershop, PNCA, Ace Hotel, and Hersha Hospitality. Her collective and curatorial works have been mentioned in publications such as the New York Times, Hyperallergic, and The Art Newspaper. Fisk is a long-standing member of the art collective Gowanus Swim Society and enjoys investigating how art can better shape our environments.
Kyo Gallery is the newest addition to the trendy Alexandria Old Town Neighborhood and the first hybrid gallery in the area. The intimate and stylish gallery exhibits art from all around the world, with no limits on medium or style. "The idea of Kyo is to bring a breath of fresh air to the art scene both locally and at large by providing access to the world of art, not just through our brick and mortar gallery, but also with a hybrid approach as we launch a global-scale web platform at the same time with kyogallery.com."
