PULSE Contemporary Art Fair is the leading US art fair dedicated solely to contemporary art.  The fair’s distinctive commitment to the art community and visitor experience makes PULSE unique among art fairs and creates an art market experience that is both dynamic and inviting. The Fair is divided into two sections and is comprised of a mix of established and emerging galleries vetted by a committee of prominent international dealers. The IMPULSE section presents galleries invited by the Committee to present solo project  booths exhibiting emerging work created in the past two years.  One artist featured in the IMPULSE section is awarded the PULSE Prize, which is a cash grant given to the winner artist to help further his career.
