An independent strategy and design studio. We build brands and transform organizations to deliver lasting impact.


An art world guided by art.

Independent was founded in 2010 as a refreshing voice in a homogenous art landscape. Its original art fair, a consciously-scaled, curatorial-focused exhibition at the former Dia Center for the Arts, developed a strong reputation as the “insider’s favorite fair.”

Fifteen years on, Independent has grown into a leading arts organization working to create a level playing field in an increasingly unequal art ecosystem. The organization produces multiple art fairs, year-round events, research, editorial content, and a consultancy dedicated to gallery practice.
