We are very pleased to feature a brand new collaborative venture, Caiger & Liberty who focus on contemporary fine art both originals and editions. Caiger & Liberty present a beautiful selection of abstract works, collage pieces and limited edition prints from established and emerging artists from the UK.
Caiger and Liberty Gallery formed as a collaboration between two established UK galleries, Caiger Contemporary Art and Liberty Gallery. Both galleries had already been working together on various projects, and were in the midst of planning a summer exhibition together when the opportunity to take their collaboration overseas came about.
We were very excited about how well our artists and artworks fitted together and feel we have a very strong offer, so we thought why not tour! The applications for Affordable Art Fair New York were open, so we thought what better place to start!’
Caiger & Liberty Directors, 2017
The galleries met through AWAD (Association of Women Art Dealers) and bonded over their like minded approach to their galleries, artists and the art world in general, which led them to start looking into options for getting involved with interesting projects together.
Nowadays it is all about collaboration and working together, which is why we are so excited to be able to launch this new collaboration in New York! But don’t worry, Londoners will also be able to see us in action too as we still have our joint exhibition coming up later this year!

ODETTA is pleased to present a work in progress by gallery artist Kurt Steger. Following their successful year with his monumental project, Scribing the Void, Kurt became ODETTA’s first represented artist. As he begins to plan his second solo exhibition at ODETTA, they offered him the gallery during show change to explore new ideas and exhale for a moment. Pending is an ephemeral work that has the potential to become something more significant. This is a time to meet the artist and discuss these new ideas and materials as he ponders depicting mass and cause and effect relationships. ODETTA will be used as his temporary studio during Armory Arts Week.
Visiting hours are: Saturday March 4, 5-9 pm and Sunday March 5, 3-7 pm. Bushwick galleries will be staying open late
The Simon|Garvey Gallery is pleased to present Trickster in Flatland – An exhibition of large scale photographs by Linda Lindroth that pay homage to an age of U.S. domestic manufacturing and art historical icons. The show will feature spatially transformative photographic work examining vivid ephemera produced during the height of domestic manufacturing in the United States. Although not dominant, the work intentionally possesses subtle environmental and political undertones. As the artist states: “… they hang as testimonies to a subservient industry, one now diminished as production moves to global markets only to return to us shrink-wrapped and encapsulated in plastic.”
Exhibition: March 1 – April 8, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 2, 6 – 8pm
Reception for the Artist: Thursday, March 16, 6 – 8pm
