DC’s (E)merge Fair Unveils Its 2013, at BlouinArtinfo

Max Gomes, on the Artists platform


When the three-year-old Washington, D.C.-based fair (e)merge returns on October 3-6, it promises over 80 exhibitors, including galleries and individual artists, and works by over 150 artists from 30 countries. Held at the Capitol Skyline Hotel, the fair will be spread out over the premises: various floors and rooms will be set aside for presentations by the fair’s section for galleries and nonprofits, while the hotel’s public areas and grounds will showcase works from unrepresented artists — an important part of the identity of (e)merge, which touts itself as the only art fair in the world that gives artists without gallery representation exhibition space, gratis.

The art on offer has passed muster with a tough selection committee that includes the Andy Warhol Museum’s Eric Shiner, the National Gallery of Art’s Molly Donovan, and Brooklyn-based artistShinique Smith. With galleries and artists from Qatar to Brooklyn, October’s festivities in D.C. promise a global sampling of emerging talent.
