Spring Break Art Show - One Hundred Curators and More Than 800 Artists
All collectors, dealers, gallerists, art lovers – pay attention to the SPIRNG/BREAK Art Show 2016! This great art event is getting better year by year, and this year’s edition will probably break all the records set during the previous ones. SPRING/BREAK Art Show is truly a unique art event – it’s a curator-driven art fair during the Armory Arts Week. 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 and art enthusiasts during the city’s art fair week. One hundred curators will premiere new artworks created by over 800 artists, all selected around this year’s central art fair theme – COPYPASTE.
SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2016 Main Theme
The central theme of the fifth edition of the SPRING/BREAK Art Show is COPYPASTE. Co-directors Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori said in a statement that they are looking for works that deal with, but are not limited to, new appropriation, copyright pilfer, whistleblower mélange, and the art historical miss-match.
