SPRING/BREAK Art Show returns to New York’s 625 Madison Avenue for its 10th edition, taking place from September 8—13. Surrounding the theme HEARSAY:HERESY, the featured presentations will look at topics that deal with medieval artisanship and medieval practices like public flogging, theocratic dominion, and the manipulation and misinformation of empires in a time that has proven to share many troubling parallels to the Dark Ages.
“Widespread disease, isolated wealth, American imperialism, and misinformed political perspectives, from all parties and belief systems, continue to build a kind of religious fervor around sharing opinions, and a fear to do so, now more than ever. All of which are not exclusive to the Dark Ages, but are certainly emblematic of their end result,” said Andrew Gori, co-Founder of SPRING/BREAK. “Still, focusing on Medieval artistry, we have our eye on the light within the Dark Ages, now and then.”
The 2021 iteration of the fair will feature presentations conceived by international names and institutions like Jude Tallichet, Chiara No, Karsten Schubert London, Goodyear Arts, Raft of Sanity, Meghan Doherty, Libby Rosa, Grace Storey, Galleri Urbane, Luke Seward, KaPow and GaBoo, Deep Space Gallery, Elisabeth Smolarz, and Francesca Pessarelli.
Within these curated installations, fairgoers will find work by artists like Max Schumann, Suzanne Kiggins, Alexandria Deters, Buzzy, Sam Tufnell, Yvette Molina, Katie Butler, Nicole Basilone, Zachary Ochoa, Stuart Lantry, Terra Goolsby, Rose Dickson, Michael Sylvan Robinson, LoVid, Ethan Minsker, and David B. Smith.
