The VIP Art Fair will be divided into three distinct exhibition halls:
• VIP Focus: comprised of 24 galleries, each presenting eight works by a single artist.
• VIP Emerging: comprised of 24 galleries, each presenting 10 works produced within the last two years by emerging artists.
A key aspect of the fair is that it is a live event. So, the gallery booths will be actively staffed and dealers are online for 12 to 18 hours a day to work with clients across the globe. VIP ticket holders have the ability to connect one-on-one with gallery staff through an integrated chat and messaging system. Once these conversations are initiated (and they can be seamlessly transferred to Skype or telephone, as preferred), dealers can discuss works being offered in the booth and can provide access to their back room inventory directly on the ticket holder’s computer screen. Here, works can be shared with clients discreetly through tailor-made “private rooms.”
