  • The fair positions 34 exhibitors within 16 bespoke exhibition rooms on the ground floor of the Starrett-Lehigh Building.

Future Fair celebrates its first in-person exhibition in tandem with the re-opening of New York City and the art fair circuits. Occupying nearly 10,000 square feet of the ground floor of RXR Realty’s iconic Art Deco landmark The Starrett-Lehigh Building in West Chelsea (601 W. 26th Street, entrance on W. 27th Street), the fair will host a VIP viewing on Thursday, September 9th and will be open to the public September 10 – 12, 2021. Future Fair 2021 positions 34 exhibitors within 16 bespoke exhibition rooms that are, on average, 500 square feet. The fair encourages cross-exhibitor collaboration, with several exhibitors partnering with a curated concept to encompass their shared room. 

“After a year and a half postponement of the inaugural show, and pivoting into digital exhibitions, the sense of jubilation both here in New York City and within our team is bursting with energy,” said Future Fair Co-Founders Rachel Mijares Fick and Rebeca Laliberte. “The self-actualization of Future Fair within the context of a life-changing pandemic has taught us so much about resilience, teamwork and allowing Future Fair to have the space to teach us its own evolutionary path. We wouldn’t be able to keep this dream going if it wasn’t for the continued support from our existing and new exhibitors, for whom we have so much pride and gratitude to work with.”

Future Fair at RXR Realty’s The Starrett-Lehigh Building is located centrally within the Chelsea gallery district, while also being six blocks directly south of the Armory Show at The Javits Center. The venue boasts floor to ceiling windows facing 27th Street, 21-foot-high ceilings and polished cement floors, indicative of Chelsea architecture. 

“We’re thrilled that Future Fair has selected The Starrett-Lehigh building as the exhibition space for their inaugural show. Starrett-Lehigh sits at the intersection of art and culture and we’re proud to be an active player and supporter of the arts in the city, working with some of the most dynamic artists, gallerists and organizations that are looking for spaces that inspire creativity, especially after such an unprecedented time,” said Whitney Arcaro, Executive Vice President, Head of Marketing and Retail Leasing, RXR Realty.
