INTER IMAGO 6 EXPO

NEW YORK / EXHIBITION OF CONTEMPORARY PAINTING SEE REGION
March 21st – 24th, 2013

After five successful realizations of the INTER IMAGO NEW YORK project where over fifty painters from the SEE region of various artistic orientations and art poetics were presented, the organizers announce the next INTER IMAGO 6 EXPO project that will be held on March 2013 as a collateral event ART EXPO NEW YORK.

The event will be held at the prestigious location at Manhattan, PIER 92 on the Hudson River, which has been the number one art fair for the past five years.

INTER IMAGO 6 EXPO is a kind of combination of an art fair and a group painting exhibition, which (with additional promotional educational events) creates a synergy between the authors and the audience to fulfill its basic goal of PROMOTING THE VALUE OF THE CONTEMPORARY EUROPEAN PICTURE.

Encouraged by the success of previous INTER IMAGO projects, the new INTER IMAGO EXPO continues the development of the concept of ART and MARKET that is not treated in terms of capturing the respective markets, but researching for the sustainability of the modern image, and establishing a creative dialogue ARTIST – CONSUMER.

Thanks to the direct contact with the professional fair audience, INTER IMAGO EXPO is becoming a new platform for the promotion of contemporary painting of the region of Southeast Europe on the demanding United States art market.
