The 2015 METRO Curates show was an unexpected breath of fresh air in the New York City art fair circuit. Building upon last year’s success, fair director Caroline Kerrigan stated that the name reflects the aim ‘to present singular viewpoints among exhibitions that cross genres in unexpected ways.’ We find out more.

The galleries involved in the Winter 2015 METRO Curates show put in extra effort to stand out in terms of booth presentation and the quality of boundary-crossing artworks displayed.

This year, the exhibitors booths lived in true color. Since its beginning, the fair has striven to embrace a range of artistic works, from anthropological materials to American folk art, applied, and decorative arts. The juxtaposition of these aesthetics and mediums made the 2015 fair stand out.

The 2015 METRO Curates show ran from the 22nd to the 25th of January during New York City’s celebrated Antiques Week, fascinating for the exhibitors present, the works displayed, and the creative types it attracted.
