Welcome to SPRING/BREAK Art Show, the new curator-driven art fair during the Armory Arts Week. The fourth annual fair will be held from March 3rd – March 8th, 2015.
Through its commitment to the discoveries of local to international curators, SPRING/BREAK Art Show will again offer a unique destination for collectors, artists, galleries, critics, scene junkies & art enthusiasts during the city’s art fair week. Forty curators will premiere new artworks created by over 150 artists, all selected around this year’s central art fair theme, TRANSACTION.
By offering a “break” from the typical art fair model, SPRING/BREAK Art Show aims to turn observation into interaction and reimagine the trade show platform as an opportune playground, instead, of the curator’s exhibition ideal.
AFTER SCHOOL SPECIAL: VIP After Hour Party
RSVP information will be announced closer to the opening of the show. VIP After Party will be Tuesday, March 3rd, 10pm - 3am.
