It is an incredible opportunity for independent artists and art galleries big and small to shine a light on emerging works to an eager audience — and all in the world's capital of creativity, NYC! Passionate about what art & this city *can do*, ALNY aims to promote the most innovative and fascinating voices and perspectives. By holding this event twice a year, ALNY strives for accessibility and novelty, and with its temporary, pop-up spaces, it keeps the focus on you, and the energy you bring.
It has created game changing art movements such as Op Art, Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism. It has also birthed some of the most influential artists in history such as Alfred Stieglitz, Roy Lichtenstein and Jean-Michael Basquiat as well as skyrocketed artists who immigrated there into stardom like Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Andy Warhol (just to name a few). With world renowned art museums like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, you can still find some of the greatest works of art in the world in NYC.
