Utopian Visions Art Fair

Friday, September 14, 5-8 PM

Saturday, September 15, 11-4 PM

Sunday, September 16, 11-4 PM

Utopian Visions Art Fair (UVAF) is an alternative art fair that provides a platform for artists, gallerists, and curators to present projects that work towards possible, alternative futures.
Art fairs allow transparency for conversations around the art world’s reliance on capitalist systems. Taking this model, UVAF asks: How do we free art from a system that both gives art its value but also makes it powerless? Presenting a range of collaborative, site-specific, accessible and community-oriented artist projects, UVAF will present an environment that explores and promotes engaged dialogue surrounding these topics.
The fair will include installations, performances, outdoor projects and a program of open conversations.
