EXHIBITOR APPLICATIONS (Deadline: October 15, 2012)

Exhibitor applications for Fountain Art Fair Miami 2012 and New York 2013 are now being accepted!  Click here to apply online today.
With record sales and attendance marking its 7th exhibition in New York, Fountain is thrilled to announce that it will once again add its unabashedly unfiltered grit to the surging art-scape of Miami’s Wynwood district, in conjunction with Art Basel Miami Beach (December 6 – 9, 2012)
“It has been an honor to see Fountain grow from our humble Brooklyn roots to an exhibition in a league with other major independent fairs.  What has been most thrilling is seeing how our returning exhibitors have grown with us – they are truly what makes Fountain the engaging, unpredictably enticing show it is.  We are excited to steamroll from our latest success to Miami Art Basel in December, and New York again next year.”  -John Leo, Co-Founder of Fountain Art Fair
Fountain also looks forward to bringing its notably alternative, antithetical atmosphere to New York’s Armory Week, March 7 – 10th, 2013.
Thanks to overwhelming interest, Fountain is now introducing application deadlines -

“Possessed of a scrappy, youthful verve lacking in its more prestigious neighbors… Fountain was distinguished by a vintage street/self-taught aesthetic…” —ArtForum
“The artists displaying their multimedia wares here are true avant-garde upstarts… Saturating your eyeballs with new imagery while listing on a rusty boat? Priceless.” —NBCNew York
“The way an art fair should be.”  —The Economist
“Fountain draws the type of unruly installations and unsettling performances that make it an unpredictable must-see… It’s perfect for jaded art lovers wondering where they can stumble across fresh, anti-corporate, stick-it-to-the-man hijnks in a laid back environment reminiscent of Burning Man” —Miami New Times
Fountain Art Fair was founded in 2006 as an attempt to leverage support for smaller independent galleries to gain access to larger collectors and critics. Since its inception, Fountain has held six exhibitions in Miami, one in Chicago, and seven in New York. From its roots deep within the independent Williamsburg art scene, Fountain has grown to represent over 20 international avant-garde galleries and projects, showcasing progressive primary-market works.
