For VITRINE's first participation in Independent Art Fair in New York, USA, we will present a solo booth of Danish artist Cecilia Fiona including a new series of paintings, with a screen and performance. Fiona is a self-trained Danish artist with no formal art training. Graduating from an Art History degree, Fiona started a painting practice, gaining international attention for her unique style and imagery.
Independent was established in 2010, with the aim of inspiring relevant art encounters for a well-informed and devoted Contemporary Art audience. Over the last decade, Independent has created an internationally recognized platform for galleries that prioritizes discovery and context, in contrast to the standard commercial fair. Due to Independent’s unique model, our audience is tailored to connoisseur-based collectors and institutions. Held annually in May at Spring Studios, and in September at the Battery Maritime Building at Cipriani South Street, Independent brings together more than 90 international galleries and non-profit organizations to New York, with consistently fresh and unexpected content for each edition. By supporting a focused range of established, innovative and emerging as well as outsider art and design from 1900 to the present, Independent aims to present a true reflection of the fabric of the global art community.
