Under the HEARSAY:HERESY theme, SPRING/BREAK will bring together over 120 projects featuring 800+ artworks that tackle everything Neo-Medieval, from plague-related mysticism to the nature of our modern social media auto-de-fe, with curators choosing to focus their shows around subcategories including Medieval formalism, heretical art-practices, and artisanship as art practice.
Exhibitions will be staged across two floors of the midtown highrise, revisiting, as co-founder Ambre Kelly puts it, “one of the last footpaths the art world collectively tread before lockdown more than a year ago.”
This year the fair will also have an ‘IMMERSIVE’ component, moving on from the Brooklyn (2017) and Times Square (2019) installations for Upstate New York as part of SPRING/BREAK alum Helen Toomer’s UPSTATE ART WEEKEND. From August 28 – 29, ‘UPSTATE IMMERSIVE’ will host a large scale sculptural exhibition on parks designated by the City of Poughkeepsie and the Poughkeepsie Public Arts Commission – a two day extravaganza ending in fireworks and musical performances from 6pm – 9pm on Sunday, August 29th.
