Thanks to the range of cutting-edge digital tools and applications, HVAF 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.
HVAF’s exciting lineup of galleries will present over 300 respected artists, from Mark Bradford to Donald Sultan, Picasso, Rockwell and Monet. Exhibitors were invited to curate solo booths in addition to their main presentations; these will include a Will Ronis booth curated by Peter Fetterman Gallery, as well as a booth dedicated to Ben Miller’s stunning Fly Cast paintings curated by Gary Snyder Fine Art Gallery, among others.
Open 24-hours a day on a range of compatible devices, HVAF’s cutting edge VR technology creates a simulated art fair environment for visitors to virtually navigate as they would a physical fair. Through 3D renderings, works will be displayed in high resolution detail and will be available for purchase with a “BUY NOW” option. HVAF will also offer a 24-hour live chat feature so attendees can connect with an art expert at all hours. At a time when we can’t gather in person, HVAF’s digital event is a way for us to still connect with art and to each other, providing as close to an authentic experience as possible.

Linjie Deng is an 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. https://www.linjiedeng.com/
