New Art Fair to Leave Visitors in the Dark

Seymour Goff poster.jpgSo, what are you going to do after you listen to Debbie Millman interview Pentagram‘s Abbott Miller today on Design Matters? Might we suggest spending the evening in a dark, art-stuffed space in Soho? And did we mention the glow-in-the-dark basketball game? Tonight marks the opening of Dark Fair, an experimental miniature art fair that unlike say, the already underway Armory Show, will take place without the use of natural or electric light.

Organized by the Milwaukee International art fair at New York’s Swiss Institute, the Dark Fair’s impressive roster of participants includes top galleries such as Marianne Boesky, Leo Koenig, and CANADA, as well as special fashion shows by the likes of Benjamin Cho. The galleries and artists will display work designed for the unique setting using candle light, glow-in-the-dark materials, light sculpture, film and video (shown on peddle-powered projectors), and unplugged performances. The fair also promises shadowy bar booths and chill-out zones. We’ll be there with our trusty Diptyque candle (follow your nose to the tuberose), asking all of the Swiss people we can find if they’ve ever been to our favorite city (Murg, Switzerland) and keeping an eye out for BMW ads.

Dark Fair runs tonight from 6pm to midnight and tomorrow from noon to 9pm at the Swiss Institute.
