Being held from the 28th February to the 6th March 2017, the 6th Spring Break Art Show is an internationally recognized exhibition platform using underused historic New York City spaces to activate and challenge the traditional cultural landscape of the art market.
The initiative offers to over 150 independent curators a free space within New York landmarks and for no-cost exhibition space. In exchange the visionaries will bring to the table new perspectives to the typical market week practices, combining and pushing them with the artistic atmosphere of over 400 artists new artworks.
This year’s theme, warns us to the latest boundaries of self-expression provided from the innovation and the new technologies. Social networks, streaming and live broadcast services influence our personal and professional life dragging us, from time to time to a deep state of review about ourselves and our behavior. That is the million dollar question that leads us to the curatorial theme Black Mirror – “what formal practices of artists today walk this line between showing/not telling or telling/not showing, the tight-walk dance between seven veils, showing just enough skin to be personal and throwing just enough shade to transcend?”
As said in the website “Curators might consider the black mirrors of Today, dualities of the artist revealing too much or not enough of the self”.
We are expecting to feel the influence and inspiration of powerful and world known artists from Frida Kahlo to Basquiat, or Cindy Sharman and Louise Bourgeois to Sophia Calle who has created an extraordinary and autobiography work-live, living and working their own skin.
Founded by Andrew Gory and Ambre Kelly in 2009, The They Co. creative super group, the art fair may be the biggest event of the Conceptual Art. Spring/Break Art Show 2017 will exhibit autobiographical artworks that engage, defy or uphold he idea that art should ”hide the artist”.
