It was the first weekend of April — and New Yorkers were once again buzzing about Artexpo New York. The world’s original fine art marketplace and longest running contemporary art fair held its 47th edition at Pier 36 in the trendy Lower East Side of Manhattan, April 4-7, 2024. With 200 innovative international and national galleries, art publishers, and artists, the fair showcased original work from literally hundreds of artists. The fair floor was full of excitement and energy — not to mention sales!

There was a 14% increase in VIP and Collector ticket holders — a clear indication that art enthusiasts, collectors, and art industry pros experience the fair and enjoy the hundreds of exciting and original artworks that exhibitors from 27 countries put on display, including prints, paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, ceramics, giclees, lithographs and glass works.


Artexpo’s programming and events kept fair goers busy and exploring. From meeting the Spotlight Program recipients to seeing the amazing artists showcased by the Legends to watching new art masterpieces being created right on the show floor. And a special collection on the Mezzanine in the Jason Perez Art Lounge. It was a fair filled with fun, events, and art!

The Spotlight Program provided collectors with a focused look at several galleries and prominent artists who created a site-specific exhibition. Spotlight Program recipients for 2024 included:
