    In Greek mythology, Clio or Kleio, is the muse of history.

    The name is etymologically derived from the Greek root κλέω/κλείω meaning “to recount,” “to celebrate,” or “to make famous.”

    With a nod to its inspiration, CLIO ART FAIR has been created with the idea of showcasing the careers and achievements of already affirmed creative minds. This is the eighth edition of CLIO ART FAIR.

    By specifically targeting artists without any exclusive NYC gallery representation, CLIO ART FAIR focuses attention on the kinds of contemporary art and interventions that are being created by independent artists the world over, since 2014.

    Without the constraints and usual concerns of the art business, the selected artists have been freed up to use different materials and media and to deviate from accepted art practice definitions. The resulting work being exhibited seeks to foster a dialogue that transcends prescribed geographies, hierarchies, and markets; and to further opportunities for greater expression of new media and ever ground-breaking content.

    For this edition, the Fair’s curatorial board has prepared a special section titled I want to go Home, dedicated to the figure of the clandestine and the refugee, as well as contemplating the physical and mental boundaries that condition the geopolitics of our world.
