An international platform for the new and emerging art
This Art Fair exists to establish boundaries of the extraordinary as a counter to the natural compulsion towards stagnation in the way art is evaluated and delivered to the public. Staying true to this necessary state for the advancement of art requires a sustained focus on the best new ideas and practices of those marginal or newly emerging to international art audiences. The satisfaction of this fixed requirement for a healthy and competitive artistic culture is at the core of Verge as an exposition of the highest quality artistic production and the galleries, museums and audiences who sustain it. For the opening musical performance, Saffron Tea by Bahar Bahebanani film premiere, and "New Images" Photography Program Survey from the Art Institute of Chicago.
