FUSION is more than an art event it’s an innovation platform that explores the need for injecting more diversity in the creative industries. Facilitators for this event will be sourced from top universities, museums, and think tanks.

Our FUSION CORNER is a concept space that welcomes collectors who are passionate about art and high-end lifestyle products in unique combinations for purchase.

FUSION NY kicks off with panel discussions at the Red Rooster Restaurant owned by celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson with afternoon tours at the Studio Museum in Harlem and a Mt. Morris Historic Tour with Welcome to Harlem and street artist Lady K Fever.
