This week’s SPRING/BREAK Art Show marks ten years of the fair and its 11th New York edition, open from September 7—12 at 625 Madison Avenue. The theme “NAKED LUNCH” sets the tone for this year’s curator-led programming, bringing together 110 exhibitions turning to the Neo-Renaissance and previously controversial works like Edouard Manet’s 1863 Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe as a reminder that turmoil and political chaos are often the circumstances that birth the most significant developments in the arts.
Building conceptually on the fair’s previous iteration that looked at Neo-Medievalism, this 2022 edition delves into the idea of a Renaissance in many forms. Also acknowledging figures of other similar movements like the Harlem Renaissance, the Free Love movement of the 1960s, and more, presentations by 100+ curators have been thoughtfully composed around works and practices dealing with themes related to the quest for cultural renewal, including nature, the body, figuration, and metaphors of nudity and depictions of social encounters.
Set across multiple floors of the former Ralph Lauren offices in Manhattan, fairgoers can expect to find solo and group presentations curated by galleries and individuals alike, including Dan Halm, 532 Gallery, Lauren Hirshfield, iv gallery, Julia Maranto and Kat Ryals, Lizzie Reid, SoMad, Ketta Ioannidou with Eun Young Choi and Daniela Kostova, Shelter, Tomato Mouse, Yen Yen and Rachel Gisela Cohen, Jess Bass, Coco Dolle and Micol Ap, Brian Whitley, Abigail Ogilvy Gallery, DJ Hellerman, and Eden Airlines.
