NEW YORK (AP) — FLUX Art Fair is coming to Harlem.

Billed as the neighborhood's first contemporary arts fair, it will feature works by both local and international artists.

It will be held on May 14-17 at the historic Corn Exchange building, recently reborn as a retail and office space.

The theme of the fair is "the 21st century artist as a nomad."

More than 50 emerging artists have been selected to participate by guest curators or through a juried process.

FLUX Art grew out of Art in Flux, created in 2012 to give artists opportunities to present their work in underutilized retail spaces.

It'll be held the same week as the FRIEZE New York contemporary art fair.

Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson and his Harlem EatUp! team also will feature culinary delights that week.
