What is the Fabrik Expo?
Traditionally art fairs are geared toward showcasing galleries and the artists that they represent. Fabrik Expo provides artists a venue to showcase their work in a professional art fair environment. Fabrik Expo provides collectors a unique opportunity to meet, acquire and collect art directly from artists.
Fabrik Expo is the sister fair to Photo Independent, which was the first photography-only fair of its kind, open to emerging and professional, unsigned or under-appreciated photographers.
How is Fabrik Expo different than other art fairs?
Fabrik Expo puts the power back in the artist’s hand by providing a platform to showcase their work in a professional environment and provides collectors a unique opportunity to meet, acquire and collect art directly from the artists.
Fabrik Expo gives artists a chance to exhibit their work directly to an international audience and connect with top art professionals the same way galleries do in traditional art fairs.
How long has Fabrik Expo been around?
Fabrik Expo is the sister fair to Photo Independent, which was the first photography-only fair of its kind, open to emerging and professional, unsigned or under-appreciated photographers. Photo Independent launched in 2014.
How are artists selected?
Artists/exhibitors are selected by an expert Selection Committee comprised of top gallerists and curators. They will select the top talent across the globe and ensure that there is a diverse representation of artistic specialties from various genres of art.
