Forward Union and Red Bull Arts New York are pleased to announce the third annual Forward Union Fair, which will take place September 29-30 at Red Bull Arts New York. The annual social action fair is a coalition-building initiative, connecting social justice organizations with artists and creative communities. Participants in this year’s fair will unite in their dedication to informed civic engagement and voter participation, and will additionally explore such themes as immigration, gun control, and healthcare through art installations and public programs.
The partnership will increase visibility for participating organizations and the causes they represent, and provide the fair with a multi-use arts space already outfitted for presenting contemporary art and public programming. Spread across both floors of Red Bull Arts New York’s dynamic space, the art installations featured at Forward Union Fair will elucidate and provoke dialogue around timely social and political issues.
