The third edition of (e)merge takes place October 3-6, 2013 at the Rubell Family’s Capitol Skyline Hotel, in Washington, DC.
The (e)merge art fair connects emerging art professionals from around the globe with collectors, curators and cultural decision makers in Washington, DC. Founded by long time art world innovators Leigh Conner and Jamie Smith of Washington, DC gallery CONNERSMITH, (e)merge has succeeded in introducing an authentic art experience to a new generation of art consumers in the capital region.
Its features participating galleries and a vetted selection of works by unrepresented artists throughout the hotel’s public areas and grounds.
(e)merge’s two exhibition platforms inspire a new echelon of art collectors and provide curatorial access to the latest movements in emerging art.
The (e)merge art fair presents an extensive line-up of special projects and performances. To receive updates on the 2013 programming and panel discussions, sign up for our mailing list and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
(e)merge announces third edition of art fair in 2013
In 2012, 80 exhibitors including bitforms, Mixed Greens and NOMAD Gallery presented rising talent from the Americas and Europe at (e)merge. More than 5,500 art supporters engaged with painting, sculpture, digital media, performance and installation works by 152 artists from 24 countries in both its gallery and artist platforms. (e)merge is the only art fair that gives free exhibition space to artists without gallery representation.
The DC region is home to one of the nation’s wealthiest, young and most highly educated populations according to recent reports from Forbes, The Economist and The Washington Post. (e)merge provides inside access to this rapidly expanding cultural market with immense economic power.
“(e)merge is such a great addition to the arts ecology of D.C. It generates excitement, knowledge, contacts, and, I dare say, a significant economic impact, as well.”
–Dorothy Kosinski, Director of the Phillips Collection
