• PICTURE THIS: It’s (UN)FAIR To Have This Much FUN

    Welcome to The (UN)FAIR
    Welcome to The (UN)FAIR

    Back for its second edition and it is better than ever. The (UN)FAIR presents art in a very cool setting with the raw space and turn of the century building that it made you feel you are on the left bank of Paris. Going to this satellite fair only a few blocks away from the grand dame ARMORY afforded you a unique experience where you explore the art that is thought provoking, witty and reframed your whole way of thinking. Housing all kinds of art in various mediums even performance art, The (UN)FAIR is gaining momentum as the place to be, Guests enjoyed wine, popcorn and the treats of ice cream from sponsor Ben & Jerry’s. Just to up the level, the two iconic ice cream legends were in attendance and reminded folks that if they wanted seconds not to throw away their cups and spoons. AF found this fair as always very forward thinking, fun and the official kick off to Armory Art Week in New York City. Having this so much fun is downright criminal and if you missed it don’t say that we didn’t tell you before – it’s their second time around and if you are still oblivious as to what this fair is all about, you missed a damn good one. It may be (UN)FAIR to regale you with all the details but make sure to go next year.
