The Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS) —the largest traveling Diasporic art show in the country — has opened its 2021 Virtual Art Show with over 60 artists and galleries from around the globe. The show, which is free to the public and accessible 24/7, will feature interactive displays showcasing some of the world’s preeminent Black artists with over 1,200 works on view. EURweb covers this year’s groundbreaking virtual show from HFAS, along with the show’s efforts to better support connections between art collectors and some of the African Diaspora’s best artists. The event will run through July 31st and be available 24-hours a day on a range of devices, utilizing cutting-edge VR technology and creating a simulated art fair environment visitors can virtually navigate as they would a physical fair.
“We are pushing the envelope in support of African Diasporic artists during these challenging times when they are not able to be in front of collectors, In our current climate, where awareness of the Black aesthetic is top of mind across the globe, it is imperative for us to reinvent the way we engage with multi-cultural artists utilizing today’s technology.” - Dion Clarke
