NEW YORK––Object & Thing kicked off its inaugural exhibition last month in Brooklyn’s East Williamsburg May 3 – 5. The installation exhibited more than 200 design objects and things (that’s the whole deal, right?) from more than 30 exhibitors, but the booth-less art fair strived to upend the traditional art fair. Instead, the creative director opted for 15 so-called “islands” throughout the the industrial 99 Scott Avenue complex. As artnet reports, each island showcased objects from multiple exhibitors, and even gallery submissions were divvied among the groupings.
Abby Bangser, Object & Thing’s founder and creative director, told artnet News that this installation concept arose out of a desire to “erase the hierarchy between art and design,” as well as any “preconceived notion about the works” that would arise from separation of any kind.artnet
