VIP ART FAIR

Good morning contemporary art lovers!
As you may know there's approximatively one art fair per month. Sometimes more! That's a lot of time and money to go to each of them. For the first time in the art world, an international art fair will be viewed exclusively online...

The VIP - Viewing In Private - art fair was founded by James Cohan, Jane Cohan, Jonas Almgren and Alessandra Almgren. James Cohan is an art dealer. He worked for the John Weber gallery, the Paula Cooper gallery and the Anthony d'Offay gallery. He created his own gallery in NY in 1999 and opened a second one in Shangai in 2008. Jane Cohan, his partner, is in charge of the press relations. Jonas and Alessandra Almgren are "art lovers" and combine their passion for art with their experience from the Silicon Valley: management and technology for him; high-tech marketing and business development for her.

Without leaving home, we'll be able to see the works of art (even zoom on the one we are interested in), to talk to the dealers (through msn, Skype...), to access the private rooms... There are many ways to visit the fair. Some visits are organized by art critics, some other by art collectors or art dealers. The VIP lounge is dedicated to the viewing of videos and movies about the fair or the visits of ateliers and privates collections. Articles about new works available and art market will be posted.

That's an unprecedented event. The world's leading contemporary art galleries are represented such as Gagosian, David Zwirner, Kamel Mennour, Massimo de Carlo, Lisson, Marlborough, Thaddeus Ropac, the Pace gallery, Almine Rech... Opening the 22th of January and for one week only. I got my VIP pass, what about you? ;)
