During Frieze Art Week in New York City, the FLUX Art Fair will debut at The Corn Exchange Building in Harlem, becoming the first art fair ever to be held in the culture-rich neighborhood.

Beginning on May 13 with private previews and opening to the public on May 14, the FLUX Art Fair showcases the work of 50 artists from around the world and Harlem, each selected by a group of independent curators under the theme: "A 21st Century Artist Is a Nomad" (click here for a full list of the artists). The fair was created by Art in Flux founder Leanne Stella, and was designed to help collectors and art lovers "discover artists and discover the vitality of Harlem."

The fair coincides with Chef Marcus Samuelsson's first HarlemEatUp! food festival, so where you spend the weekend should be a no-brainer. General admission for the fair is an affordable $20, with discounts offered for students, seniors, and groups of ten or more. Check out a preview of the work on display at the fair below, and head to the FLUX Art Fair website for more information.
