As The Salons success is predicated on the quality of its galleries and the material they exhibit, we are proud to announce this outstanding lineup of exceptional exhibitors, says Executive Director Jill Bokor. Few fairs today include the range of both fine and decorative arts found at The Salon. Recognizing the desire of collectors and interior designers to create environments rather than simply amass objects, the Salon exhibitors are chosen for their precise and creative way of presenting material that both predicts and reflects trends in the international culture of living. Ultimately, The Salon is curated on the premise that collectors and designers insist on a vibrant, uncommon array of styles, materials, and periods as long as the quality is impeccable.
The Salon Art + Design is proud to partner with returning sponsors Ruinart and Goyard and welcomes first-time sponsors Lalique and InCollect. Charity partners include Dia Art Foundation and Planned Parenthood.
The Salon will also welcome a number of special exhibitions including an installation by contemporary American visual artist Paula Hayes. Widely credited with catalyzing the resurgence of the twenty-first century terrarium in its contemporary interpretation, Hayes practice re-defines and expands the parameters of art beyond static inanimate objects by concentrating on the natural environment.
