The Clio Art Fair is an international contemporary art fair staged bi-annually in New York City. It focuses on independent visual artists, without any exclusive NYC gallery representation.
The purpose of the fair is to bring together artists and curators, collectors and art critics without any long term mediator.
The Clio Art Fair was started in 2014 by art dealer and philanthropist Alessandro Berni. The name comes from Clio or Kleio, one of the nine muses in Greek mythology, representing history. Etymologically derived from the Greek root κλέω/κλείω: “to celebrate,” or “to make famous.”
In its inaugural year, displayed 33 artists representing 16 countries. In 2017, three years after its founding, the fair became bi-annual. In 2018, the fair moved to the 335 west 35th street, New York, NY allowing it to expand both its exhibitor base and floor space. In 2019 and 2020 the fair has been hosted at 550 West 29th street, New York, NY 1001. The October 2020 edition has been suspended because of the COVID-19 emergency.
