Fridge Art Fair is run and founded by artist Eric Ginsburg. The fair was born in 2013 in NYC's Lower East Side as a satellite of Frieze New York when artists turned out to participate in answer to Ginsburg's challenge, “Can you fit into the Fridge?”

Tickets: $10 One-day pass, $25 for VIP | Grand Gala (Thursday, December 6). It's the fair's policy not to turn anyone away regardless of their financial situation.
