Elizabeth Dee is a cultural entrepreneur, curator, activist, publisher, consultant and producer. After two decades of dedication to gallery practice and collaborative initiatives, she now runs Independent Art Fairs in New York and Brussels as CEO and Co-Founder. Elizabeth regularly lectures on topics of relevance to the field, particularly gallery and fair culture, innovation and the art market–and has been profiled in many international publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Vogue and The New York Times.
During a period of unprecedented growth of global art fairs, Dee co-founded Independent with gallery colleagues, as an exhibition concept to follow X Initiative with a mission to organize large scale presentations by galleries for galleries to a wider public. Independent is now the only independently owned and operated art fair corporation in the world operating and evolving with its core mission to serve the future of culture. Now in its tenth year, Independent is taking place annually in New York in March, and November in Brussels.
