Although there is a tradition in France of artists fairs, starting from the famous Courbetís Salon des Independents, PooL is the premiere fair in the US dedicated to un-represented artists. The first edition took place in 2000 under the title : New York Independent Art Fair.
The simple, modest approach of the PooL Art Fair offers an exciting alternative to the "Art Fair" experience for dealers and collectors as well as the general public. PooL's purpose is to create a meeting ground for outstanding artists, primarily those who do not yet have gallery representation. Contemporary art dealers, artist agents, emerging galleries, artists' collectives, and non-profit organizations are also invited to apply to participate as exhibitors. The fair serves as an invaluable resource for the artistic community and the general public.
Frere Independent offers artists the opportunity to be a part of the unique and important cultural environment that manifests during Art Basel Miami Beach. It is also an opportunity for gallery owners, curators and other art enthusiasts to discover artists that are not shown in the other art fairs. Finally, artists are able to sell works while expanding their network as well as receiving invitations to exhibit or create site-specific works.
