Dedicated to artists that do not have representation in galleries
The event is different from all other art fairs in the US. Although there is a tradition in France of independent art fairs, starting from the famous Courbet's Salon des Independents, PooL is the premiere fair in the US dedicated to artists that do not have representation in galleries. The fair's ambition is to create a meeting ground for artists, art dealers, curators, and buyers. Each artist, or small group of artists, uses the hotel room as an exhibition space.
