RU INCLUDED IN ARTNET’S NEWD ART FAIR REPORT
What Makes NEWD Art Show Special?
By Cait Munro
For a fair in its first year, NEWD felt surprisingly cohesive. With very few exceptions, the art on display was fresh and less scruffy than one might imagine. The digestible size and relatively calm atmosphere provided a welcome break from the alcohol-soaked streets and exhausting proliferation of artist studios that comprised the majority of the weekend.
One of these spaces, Residency Unlimited, had a buzzed-about booth showing colorful, free form paintings from Costa Rican artist Andres Carranza. Residency Unlimited program director Boshko Boskovic noted that NEWD “created an environment showcasing a variety of contemporary artworks that might not have been viewed in an art fair setting.”
