Kicking off on March 3 during Armory Arts Week in New York City, the 4th installment of the SPRING/BREAK Art Show will say goodbye to its previous location at Old School (32 Prince Street) and move to Midtown. The week-long "curator-driven" art fair will occupy two floors of Skylight at Moynihan Station, inside the James A. Farley Post Office Building across from Madison Square Garden.
Last year's edition of the art show saw 40 curators presenting projects by 120 artists, all under the curatorial theme PUBLICPRIVATE. For the 2015 installment, the number of curators has doubled to 80, and the theme of the fair is now TRANSACTION. In an interview with Observer, SPRING/BREAK Art Show founders Andrew Gori and Ambre Kelly spoke about the move to a new location after Old School was sold and converted into expensive condos, and about why Moynihan Station was a good fit. "Some spaces wouldn’t work for us," said Gori. "We like that historic element in the foreground whenever we use a space."
The preview date for the fair is March 3, and regular show dates are from March 4 through March 8. For specifics, head to the SPRING/BREAK Art Fair website.
