In Greek mythology, Clio or Kleio, is the muse of history.
The name is etymologically derived from the Greek root κλέω/κλείω meaning “to recount,” “to celebrate,” or “to make famous.”
With a nod to its inspiration, CLIO ART FAIR has been created with the idea of discovering under represented artists and showcasing the careers and achievements of already affirmed creative minds.
By specifically targeting artists without any exclusive NYC gallery representation, CLIO ART FAIR 2014 focuses attention on the kinds of contemporary art and interventions that are being created by independent artists the world over.
Without the constraints and usual concerns of the art business, these artists have been freed up to use different materials and media and to deviate from accepted art practice definitions. The resulting work being exhibited seeks to foster a dialogue that transcends prescribed geographies, hierarchies, and markets; and to further opportunities for greater expression of new media and ever ground-breaking content.
