Thanks to the range of cutting-edge digital tools and applications, HVAC is the closest simulation of a physical fair to date, as it is both immersive and interactive. It maintains the Hamptons 15 year summer tradition of a well-curated, high caliber, international, yet localized, and expansive marketplace for galleries and Hamptonites to unite.
Launching on July 23-26, with a VIP Sneak Preview. A boutique version (20 dealers) of the larger Sept 2-7 fair (60+ dealers) will launch July 23-26 to create the buzz, and raise the level of excitement worldwide. Both versions will offer art collectors unprecedented 24-hour BUY Now, Live Chat and Dealer Inquiry acquisition-driven action options.
One of the artists on display during the VIP Sneak Preview will be Linjie Deng. The NYC-based, multimedia artist will have 25 works available at the Hamptons Virtual Art Fair. Deng has a Master of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts NYC. He has been studying Chinese ink art since the age of six and it still inspires him today. “I still love it, because water helps to enlarge the gradation of Ink color. When dissolving Ink into water, you can observe delicate changes, which illustrates Eastern culture’s unique philosophy. You never know what will happen,” says Deng. His types of work now focus on a space situated among digital media and video from a Conceptualist position.
