[SOLO] San Diego


[SOLO]: A Focus on Independent Artists

Art San Diego will include a new event starting in 2016: [SOLO]. After decades of successful [SOLO] exhibitions at Artexpo New York, we’re excited to announce that we are expanding the concept to several of our other contemporary art shows: Spectrum Miami, Spectrum Indian Wells, and Art Santa Fe.

What is [SOLO]?

[SOLO] is an opportunity for emerging and mid-career independent artists to showcase their work to international audiences at our high-end, juried contemporary art shows. Over the decades, [SOLO] has become the ultimate venue for independent artists to be discovered—not only by gallery owners and art publishers—but also by collectors and enthusiasts in search of exciting new works. In addition to providing impressive exposure, exhibiting at [SOLO] offers artists the chance to scope out the latest trends in the art world and connect with other art industry professionals.

Be Discovered

For emerging artists wondering how to branch out and get their work seen, delving into the art show world can be daunting. But we’re here to help you at every step, and we’ll continue to guide you as your career grows. We’re passionate about giving you the support you need in order to achieve your creative and professional goals, no matter what stage of your career you’re embarking on.

[SOLO] Success Stories

[SOLO] has been a springboard for countless independent artists’ careers over the years. Here are some remarks from past [SOLO] exhibitors on their experience:
