In response to prevailing market concerns, Bridge has modified its floorplan to provide more affordable options for galleries seeking participation in the New York art fair market during Armory Show week, March 5-8, 2009.

“We are always happy to provide more ways for great art to find its market,” says Founder and Director, Michael Workman. “Art fairs have become too expensive and in the current climate, it’s important that we try harder to help galleries go further on less.” The final application deadline has been extended to January 17 in order to provide exhibitors sufficient time to respond.

New plans includes the addition of a 100 sq. ft. “Verge” section booth that, at $5,000, represents the most affordable rate of any art fair in New York. The 200 sq. ft. standard booth is now available for $10,000, and a premium booth size of 300 sq. ft., the most spacious booth ever offered by the fair, is now available at $14,000.

These new Bridge rates and booth sizes provide a way for exhibitors to access an audience in 2008 well in excess of 12,000 attendees, for the price of a single page ad in Artforum. Unlike magazine advertising, however, participation in Bridge ensures direct face-to-face encounters with some of the top collectors in America and around the world, as well as museum, private collection and corporate curators, and large numbers of the national and international art press.

Bridge New York ’08 will present more than 60 international exhibitors from such diverse locales as Austria, Canada, China, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Korea, the Philippines, Spain, Switzerland, the UK, and the United States.

"We are proud and happy to be able show this truly splendid exhibition.
