“The fair’s café – dubbed The Pigeon Café for this special Spring Edition – has a unique installation from JJ Galloway, designed specifically for Affordable Art Fair NYC. Inspired by artworld contemporaries, everyday life and her daughter’s childhood habit of placing food on her head before eating, this interactive and playful collection highlights one of the most steadfast and iconic of New York residents, the pigeon.
Twenty-four cheerful paintings and seven sculptures will take over the café on Level 2, with each pigeon highlighting a cult favorite of New York cuisine, from savory ramen noodles to the sweet black-and-white cookie. This is Galloway’s second installation at Affordable Art Fair NYC.”

What are some places to eat at the fair?
We’re working with a lovely caterer for the fair, Monterone, who serves simple, healthy and delicious food inspired by European heritage and augmented with local ingredients. They will be set up in the Pigeon Café, an immersive installation created by multi-disciplinary artist, JJ Galloway. The Locals, an installation of pigeon sculptures sitting above the café walls, waiting for a chip to drop, will be complemented by a series of quirky limited-edition paintings that will evoke the senses - featuring food and animals in unexpected ways.
And the best thing about it: You will be able to order you custom pigeon painting directly with JJ.
