New York’s Spring/Break Art Show will return for its eighth edition next year, this time with the theme “Fact and Fiction.” This year’s fair will run from March 6 through 11, coinciding with the run of the Armory Show. A location has not yet been announced.
Andrew Gori, a cofounder of the fair, said that this year’s theme was inspired by today’s topsy-turvy political climate. “We thought, ‘Well, since high stations of office are calling into question what most people would consider factual, maybe it’s a good time to explore how artists inhabit paradoxical spaces,’ ” he told ARTnews.
Ambre Kelly, the fair’s other cofounder, said, “I kept thinking about the game of telephone—how one starts with a given that’s impacted by others’ perceptions and eventually morphs into something else.”
The show will involve a new partnership with the Times Square Alliance, which will display work by five emerging artists in the plazas in and around Times Square. The deadline is November 1 for submissions to the Times Square Alliance program, and November 19 for submissions to the main part of the fair.
