All’s Not Fair at Independent Projects

By Allyson Shiffman

New York does not need another art fair, but Independent Projects, a new spinoff from the Independent Art Fair held in March, is not just another art fair. Opening today in Chelsea’s former Dia building, it brings together 40 international galleries with focused, mostly monographic shows that will remain on view to the public through November 15. The result is a cleaner, less chaotic experience that does not so much strain the eye but train it.
