Spring/Break Art Show to Stage New York Fair at United Nations Plaza

Following the successful launch of its first Los Angeles fair, the Spring/Break Art Show has announced that it will hold its eighth annual New York edition at 866 United Nations Plaza during Armory Week, from March 5 to March 11, 2019. The fair will occupy the former Finnish and Liberian embassies—wood-paneled office spaces resembling those from its last home at 4 Times Square.

The fair’s location, which boasts views of both the United Nations headquarters and the Trump World Tower, complements its theme of “FACT AND FICTION,” which will explore the tug of war between facts and their “alternatives.” Since the footprint of the show is slightly smaller than last year’s edition, Spring/Break will feature a more tightly-curated program of eighty-five projects, compared to the 130 exhibitions of the year prior.

Despite choosing to activate a new location, Spring/Break will keep its connection with Times Square going by organizing a public art initiative that will be cocurated with Times Square Arts. Four site-specific outdoor sculptures that blur reality and fantasy, by Noah Scalin, ICY and SOT, Michael Zelehoski, and Devra Freelander and Gracelee Lawrence, will be on view at the Times Square Broadway plazas between Forty-Second and Forty-Seventh Streets from March 5 to March 31, 2019.
