The art scene in New York City has been incredibly energetic for decades, and we are seeing a resurgence of this energy in the contemporary-sphere in none other than Harlem. Leanne Stella, renowned curator & fair organizer is solidifying this position with the launch of Flux Art Fair. The inaugural fair is an extension of Stella’s Art In Flux program, which provides opportunities for artists through pop-up exhibitions in under-utilized spaces in the neighborhood.
