The Recent Graduate Exhibition at the Affordable Art Fair NYC is a dedicated platform that supports emerging artists and curators within the contemporary art community. This fall, our NYC edition will present two emerging artists including New York based sculptor Devra Freelander and installation artist Natalie Baxter, with their exhibition curated by Regina Parkinson.
Regina Parkinson sat down with one of the artists, Devra Freelander, in her studio in Greenpoint, New York to talk about her practice, her participation in the upcoming NYC fall edition and what it’s like to be an emerging artist in New York City.
