BRIDGE NFP:Bridge not-for-profit is a 501(c)(3) organization established in 2003 and is responsible for the educational programs at Bridge Art Fair, comprising all Bridge publications, special exhibitions, lectures, talks and artists’ projects, as well as portions of both the Visual Culture and Effect components of the fair.
BRIDGE FOCUS : LATIN AMERICABRIDGE FOCUS debuted at Bridge New York'08 with focus Asia. Following that success, many editions of Bridge Art Fair now include a geocultural focus—which is composed of approximately 15–20% of the final exposition. Centering on a specific area allows Bridge to express the cultural mindset and artistic output of that region. Bridge focus components are organized in collaboration with participating galleries, local artists and curators and partner institutions.
BRIDGE VISUAL CULTURE:BRIDGE VISUAL CULTURE components provide more individualized, almost experiential access to enrich the visitor’s understanding of the larger purpose of an artwork. Bridge visual cultural programming incorporates a limitless definition of the field into its curatorial premise, which includes advertising, anthropology, art history, critical theory, cultural studies, the Internet, performance, philosophy, television media and much more.
BRIDGE EFFECT:BRIDGE EFFECT provides a sampling of the art-cultural efforts from the four international cities where BRIDGE holds annual fairs: Miami, London, New York and Berlin. Each destination exercises its own unique influence on the global art world, conveying it through its own specific cultural customs and practices. Providing a platform for the regional interests and their attendant institutions and artist communities, Bridge Effect is a jumping-off point to initiate dialogue in a transnational context.
