Metro Curates (Art Fair)
METRO Curates presents a select group of galleries in a setting providing intimate scale, a high level of connoisseurship and a compellingly diverse selection of material. The unexpected crossing of genres provides juxtapositions, both surprising and stimulating.
From ethnographic to abstract art, from outsider to Pop Art, folk art to decorative arts, the fair’s message is one of inclusion – that great ideas, great art and great design are best when presented creatively side by side in an integrated fashion. In keeping with the curated concept of the fair, each of the participating galleries is asked to present a single-artist or themed exhibit of artwork.
For over 40 years, William Siegal has assembled the one of the world’s largest collection of Andean Textiles dating from 750 BC to the 19th Century. Ceremonial objects and artifacts from Meso and South American cultures, Ancient Chinese, Southeast Asia, African and Indonesian museum-quality pieces will also be presented.
