Spring Break Art Show NYC


Everything is emotional. I’m still in Sweden visiting my close family for first time in years because of Covid. When I return to the US tomorrow it’s straight into art fair week. I’m very excited to show this monoprint (Figment, synthetic dye on paper, 9x12”, 2021) as part of our show springbreakartshow in booth 1143 curated by chris_lucius  and libbyrosa.

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 Fourth Annual Los Angeles exhibition will be held on February 15th - 19th. The 10th anniversary New York City exhibition was held from September 7th - 12th. By first inhabiting St. Patrick's Old School, and then the former James A. Farley Post Office, Condé Nast building, and UN Plaza building, 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.
