Now in its eighth year, Independent New York remains a unique curatorial destination that sheds the oft-repeated art fair format: it gathers select artists and galleries—52 total for the 2017 edition—from around the world without rules for what they should exhibit. This year, the result includes about 20 solo exhibitions (nearly half showing the work of female artists); first-time appearances by Galerie Perrotin, Freedman Fitzpatrick, Triple Canopy magazine, and The New Museum; and a general trend of art from or referencing the ’80s. The works span four floors of Spring Studios in New York and extend across the Atlantic; a permanent extension space opened in Brussels last year, and provides a connective platform to show work from galleries participating in New York.
