DESCRIPTION

SPRING/BREAK Art Show is an internationally recognized exhibition platform using underused historic New York City spaces to activate and challenge the traditional cultural landscape of the art market, typically but not exclusively during Armory Arts Week. The sixth annual fair will be held from February 28th – March 6th, 2017.

By first inhabiting St. Patrick's Old School, and then the former James A. Fairley Post Office, the initiative offers independent curators free space within New York City landmarks. In exchange for no-cost exhibition space, visionaries both established and unknown are charged with activating these non-traditional areas under a unifying theme and pushed to extend the boundries of typical market week practices, low overhead and shifting curatorial themes their assets to this end. 

All artworks in the show are displayed and available for purchase online, giving artists unknown, emerging, mid-career, and beyond a virtual compliment to their tactile exhibition.

Low-cost exhibition space and low-cost entry for art patrons, public, and practioners alike aims to widen the arts audience in New York and broaden the dialog of what constitutes value and economy in a 21st Century city.

In 2017 over one hundred curators will premiere new artworks created by over 800 artists, all selected around this year’s central art theme, BLACK MIRROR.
