Traditional arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas take center stage in New York City during 3rd Annual NYC Tribal Art Week™

We would like to invite you to join us at the 3rd Annual New York Tribal Art Week™ in the 2012 NYC Tribal Art Show which is already shaping up to be an extraordinary art fair event. This is the premier event during this year’s 3rd Annual NYC Tribal Art Week™.

The NYC Tribal Art Show 2012, is a one of a kind cultural event designed for collectors, dealers, curators and museum professionals to view, purchase and discuss traditional art objects from Africa, Oceania and the Americas (AOA). The NYC Tribal Art Show will take place at the Bohemian National Hall at the same time as major auctions at Sotheby’s and Bonhams (May 11,2012 ) as well as various AOA gallery exhibitions around New York City.

Historically, New Yorkers have been among the foremost collectors of AOA tribal art. New York politicians, artists, business leaders, professionals, fashion moguls and celebrities such as Helena Rubinstein, Nelson Rockefeller, Andy Warhol, John Friede, Armand Arman and Robert Mapplethorpe have solidified the international tribal art market rumored to now only exist in Paris.

The goal of the NYC Tribal Art Show during New York Tribal Art Week™ is to bring together those who share a common interest in the arts and to inspire a greater public knowledge of the cultural importance and artistic significance of non-western art forms. Local and visiting collectors and aficionados, as well as anyone interested in tribal art or simply wanting to learn about this fascinating art form are invited to attend and help bring back the excitement of AOA tribal art to it’s original home in New York City

The 3rd Annual
NYC Tribal Art Week™

found at artfixdaily.com

A wealth of gallery exhibitions, auctions, and events focused on tribal art will take place from May 7 – 13, 2012 in New York City. A consortium of leading specialists will offer traditional African, Asian, Oceanic, and Native American works of art of the highest quality, including rare masterpieces as well as more affordable items.

New York Tribal Art Week™ was created in 2010 by David A. Cassera who said, “last year the excitement of the Sotheby’s auction had everyone enthralled, there was a great atmosphere in New York. I had a vision two years ago when I created the Madison Avenue Promenade (now AOA NY). After Caskey Lees canceled their annual Armory show I only had a month to create a website, map and booklet for the events. Somehow I pulled it off amidst a firestorm of negativity. Now in it’s third year I am following the blueprints of New York’s Asia Week. We are pleased with the progress we have made over the last few years bringing the excitement of Tribal Art back to the City where it all began. My philosophy, which differs from others, is to have fun and celebrate the beauty of the arts without all of the drama.”

NYC Tribal Art Show – A New Addition to NYC Tribal Art Week:

The NYC Tribal Art Show 2012, is a one of a kind cultural event designed for collectors, dealers, curators and museum professionals to view, purchase and discuss traditional art objects from Africa, Oceania and the Americas (AOA). The NYC Tribal Art Show will take place at the Bohemian National Hall at the same time as major auctions at Sotheby’s and Bonhams, as well as various AOA gallery exhibitions around New York City.

Historically, New Yorkers have been among the foremost collectors of AOA tribal art. New York politicians, artists, business leaders, professionals, fashion moguls and celebrities such as Helena Rubinstein, Nelson Rockefeller, Andy Warhol, John Friede, Armand Arman and Robert Mapplethorpe have solidified the international tribal art market rumored to now only exist in Paris.

Unlike the exhibitions taking place in New York, the NYC Tribal Art Show is focused more on the art and less on the dealer. Therefore a list of participating dealers is not published until the opening. The goal of the NYC Tribal Art Show during New York Tribal Art Week™ is to bring together those who share a common interest in the arts and to inspire a greater public knowledge of the cultural importance and artistic significance of non-western art forms. Local and visiting collectors and aficionados, as well as anyone interested in tribal art or simply wanting to learn about this fascinating art form are invited to attend and help bring back the excitement of AOA tribal art to it’s original home in New York City!
