RED DOT is a vetted, hotel-based art fair in New York where approximately 45 galleries will show and sell works to the public on three adjacent floors of the elegant Park South Hotel. Galleries participating in RED DOT come from across the US and abroad. RED DOTís roster includes young dealers exhibiting for the first time, as well as more established dealers turned off by the pressures of other art fairs. This is why RED DOT is of special interest to art lovers and savvy art collectors wishing to get beyond what is currently popular to see what is percolating in areas as yet undiscovered by the mainstream.
RED DOT promotes no aesthetic stance beyond it goal of extending visibility to quality galleries and artists who might otherwise go unnoticed because of limited discretionary budgets. RED DOT is a return to the roots of most US art fairs; to a time when young, forward-looking galleries had to rely on innovation, surprise and whimsy to show and sell exciting non-market-tested works instead of showing safe bets to meet expenses. RED DOT works because it allows dealers to take real risks and show works they really believe in.
