SPRING/BREAK Art Show returns for it’s second annual exhibition at the Old School on March 5 – 10, 2013. NY Arts Magazine recently caught up with two of the show’s many curators, Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori. This year’s rendition is titled, “New Mysticism.” Using this theme, more than 20 curators will show pieces that all fit the premise of the exhibit. Over 70 artists will be displayed within the Old School’s historic walls.
Kelly and Gori explain, “New to the initiative, SPRING/BREAK partners this year with online auction house Paddle8, with all sales accessible to Paddle8’s global collector community – making SPRING/BREAK the first fair to make works salable exclusively through a digital platform. An online preview of selected works launches February 27th, with sales going live March 5th – 10th, in tandem with the exhibition (see: www.paddle8.com/auctions/springbreak).”
They add, “Also new this year, fair organizers, artists, and curators have agreed to donate a portion of sales to the NYFA Emergency Relief Fund for individual artists affected by Hurricane Sandy. In addition, the auction will allocate a percentage of sales from artwork to Joanne Tucker and Adam Driver’s Arts in the Armed Forces (AITAF) initiative.”
SPRING/BREAK has partnered with VOLTA NY this year, as well. All of the downtown fair’s cards that have been relocated will be recognized at the front entry with VOLTA performing the same courtesy to all guests of SPRING/BREAK Art Show.
Participating artists – established and emerging alike – will be show side-by-side to keep with the fair’s mission. Artists include: Jeremy Blake, Yorgo Alexopoulos, Michael Joaquin Grey, Chuck Webster, JR, Fall On Your Sword and Sarah Bereza, Julia Chiang, Matthew Hassell, Russell Tyler, Z Behl, Myla Dalbesio, Tom Smith, Rachel de Joode, and many, many others.
Kelly and Gori proudly announce, “Eve Sussman and Simon Lee will return this year as curators, unveiling the work of convicted confidence artists Jack + Leigh Ruby, as they re-appropriate past criminal activities into a formal context. Other curators include Maureen Sullivan, Kyle DeWoody, Helen Toomer, Gabriela Alva, Tom Weinrich and more.”
Be sure to take a break from the ordinary this spring at SPRING/BREAK Art show between March 5 and 10. Again, the show will be held at the Old School, located at 233 Mott Street, NYC on the corner of Prince Street and Mott Street.
