April 9, 2015 – Today SELECT Art Fair releases its initial 2015 programing schedule, which includes an exciting roster of musical talent, performances, Installations, book signings, and lectures. From May 13 – 17, SELECT will return to Frieze Week and will present its diverse platform at the historic Center 548, formerly the DIA Centre.
SELECT will feature for the very first time a selection of critically acclaimed musical acts including Lee Renaldo from Sonic Youth and collaborator Leah Singer, Mivos String Quartet, Hiro Kone, Sick Feeling and Narc. Each act will perform adjacent to immersive rooftop installations by Andriy Bazyuta – presented by Whitebox Art Center – and TROUBLE, artist duo Sam Hillmer and Laura Paris.
SELECT’s advisory panel will help present adjunct programming which includes lectures, book signings and performance art throughout the fair. The advisory panel is made up of reputable arts organizations, such as Franklin Furnace, Rhombus Space, BRIC, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, OR Gallery, Whitebox Art Center, and Transmitter.
Center 548 is divided into three floors and a roof deck with stunning 360-degree views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. Each floor is 9,000 square feet of virtually column-free space and 14-foot high ceilings. Highlights of the fair include a video program by Skowhegan and the return of Culturefix, a popular LES Art Bar that will resurrect itself on the rooftop and will feature an array of specialty cocktails, beers and wines.
Limited gallery space is still available. Additional performances, musical elements and galleries will be revealed soon.
SELECT was conceived at the end of 2011 by Matthew Eck and Brian Whitley; now in our fourth year of production, we are proud to be one of the fastest growing arts production companies in America. SELECT provides a contemporary platform for galleries to market emerging to mid-career artists. By integrating brands into the art market, SELECT is able to creatively provide new and interesting ways to showcase art as well as activate the work.
