Featuring the projects of over 20 curators, the show will abandon the traditional focus on galleries, offering a "break" from the typical art fair model, and showcase a range of New York City's curatorial voices, all surrounding a single exhibition theme: New Mysticism.
Welcome to SPRING/BREAK Art Show, the new curator-driven art fair during the Armory Arts Week. The 2nd Annual fair will inhabit Old School, a four-story schoolhouse located in NoLIta from March 5th – March 10th, 2013.
Featuring the projects of over 20 curators, the show will abandon the traditional focus on galleries – offering a “break” from the typical art fair model – and showcase a range of New York City’s curatorial voices, all surrounding a single exhibition theme - New Mysticism.
Utilizing over 20 classrooms, hallways, and unique areas in one of the city’s oldest schoolhouses, new art works will be on display, arranged by curators representing the more recent creative contributions of the Lower East Side, Williamsburg, Gowanus, and Bushwick. New Mysticism, the fair’s 2013 curatorial theme as described by Andrew Gori and Ambre Kelly, the co-founders of The They Co. and SPRING/BREAK Art Show, ‘examines how digital semiotics, the Internet, and technology at large, along with the old relics of 20th century visual culture together all provoke a new formal intuition within the aesthetic incantations of formal expression today – often more human than our advancements would have us know.’
