SPRING/BREAK Art Show
March 6 – 12, 2018
4 Times Square, NYC (Chashama)
Entrance at 140 West 43rd Street
SPRING/BREAK Art Show is an internationally recognized exhibition platform using underused, atypical and historic New York City exhibition spaces to activate and challenge the traditional cultural landscape of the art market, typically but not exclusively during Armory Arts Week. The seventh annual fair will be held from March 6th – March 12th, 2018 at 4 Times Square.
By first inhabiting St. Patrick’s Old School, and then the former James A. Farley Post Office, the initiative offers independent curators free space within New York City landmarks, past and future. In exchange for no-cost exhibition space, visionary perspectives both established and unknown are charged with engaging these areas under a unifying theme and pushed to extend the boundries of typical market week practices, low overhead and shifting curatorial themes their assets to this end.
All artworks in the show are displayed and available for purchase online, giving artists unknown, emerging, mid-career, and beyond a virtual compliment to their tactile exhibition.
Low-cost exhibition space and low-cost entry for art patrons, public, and practitioners alike aims to widen the arts audience in New York and broaden the dialog of what constitutes value and economy in a 21st Century city.
In March 2017, over 150 curators premiered new artworks created by over 400 artists, all selected around this year’s central art theme, BLACK MIRROR.
