The Pioneering SPRING/BREAK Art Show Returns this Fall

On September 6, the fall edition of SPRING/BREAK Art Show returns to New York for its 11th year, on view through September 11 at 625 Madison Avenue. Celebrating in 11 consecutive years, and 11 dynamic themes, this season’s fair, founded by Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori, invited curators to infuse a past focus with cutting-edge artists. Invoking the spirit of tarot card methodology, the presentation offers more than 110 exhibits from over 150 inspired curators, producing a star-crossed exhibition for avid art collectors and newcomers alike.

A Year of Remembrance and Looking Forward at SPRING/BREAK Art Show

Continuing to provide free exhibition space for dedicated, independent curators in New York and Los Angeles, SPRING/BREAK leads the path in bringing unseen emerging and mid-career artists into the brilliant light. A lively SECRET SHOW pop-up for Frieze New York this past May kicked off the year with the grand anniversary in mind, spotlighting past creatives in NoLiTa’s Old School—the fair’s first stomping grounds. New this year, Kelly and Gori have solely curated the “Artist Spotlight” category in which the works of talented artists who have not yet secured curators will be on display.

An Inspired Fair of Creativity and Community Unfolds on Madison Avenue

Creatives who hold a special place in the heart of the SPRING/BREAK family and the New York art community will participate this year. Lee Renaldo of Sonic Youth presents works with partner and close collaborator Leah Singer in a stunning group exhibition, curated by Tara Fracalossi with Thomas Lail, while Anthony Haden-Guest offers a thought-provoking interpretation of Medieval artworks with Connie Lee, founder of Art Lives Here. Curator, gallerist, and artist Lisa Bowman displays artworks curated by artist Brigitte Engler and filmmaker Kelly Reichardt, and a captivating retrospective by the late legendary filmmaker, choreographer, and artist Jo Andres will take place, curated by dancer and artist Laurie Berg alongside Stephanie Acosta

Visionary Curators and Artists Unite for SPRING/BREAK Art Show

Curator teams such as Cara Sheffler and Marguerite Wibaux, Giancarlo Venturini and Grace Bromley, Norma Homberg and Francesca Arcilesi, present enthralling new paintings and installations. Fire (2022) by Kay Seohyung Lee, curated by Blah Blah Gallery, is a kaleidoscopic glimpse into the tremendous female experience, while Cate Pasquarelli’s Small Town No. 2 (2023) brings unrest and uncertainty to a small town. Pieces such as the attention-grabbing Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest by Tom Sanford, curated by Jamie Dolan, and Pizza Boy by Guillermo Serrano, curated by Todd Cramer, pay distinct and imaginative homage to the diversity and heart of New York City.
