Object & Thing reimagines the art and design fair concept, by bringing together both disciplines through a focus on the object. Launched in 2019 and returning in May 2020 as an exhibition in New York City, as well as through a corresponding e-commerce site, Object & Thing presents object-based 20th and 21st century works from leading international art and design galleries. The exhibition will be complemented by a gathering of select design boutiques selling functional and decorative wares at lower price points in the Shop. Through these varied formats, Object & Thing will provide a shoppable, enriching, and accessible experience for the seasoned art and design collector as well as casual buyer.
