Join Fountain for the 100 Year Anniversary of the Original Armory Show at the 69th Regiment Armory
(New York) Time is running out to join Fountain Art Fair for its 8th annual New York exhibition this March 8 - 10th, 2013. Held at the 69th Regiment Armory, home of revolutionary 1913 Armory Show, this centennial anniversary aims to challenge and inspire with a notoriously unpredictable platform of artists, avant garde galleries, contemporary performance art and street art.
New and returning artists will pay homage to the Armory Show’s early years with reinterpreted versions of iconic works including installation artist Miguel Ovalle’s own take on Marcel Duchamp’s controversial Nude Descending a Staircase and Don Porcella’s nod to Duchamp’s readymade Fountain, fashioned entirely of pipe cleaners.
Fountain partners with WAGMAG the free monthly guide to Brooklyn galleries. The creative marketing organization Republic Worldwide brings local events and arts culture publication The L Magazine as a media partner for the fair. Fountain also welcomes Artcards, a digital publication that believes in the importance of seeing art in person, as a media sponsor.
“Tons of community-oriented art, at price points that were actually, actually thinkable for your average alternative culture journalist.” ~ The San Francisco Bay Guardian
“It’s the best place to find young talent.” ~ Cartwheel
“Fountain remains truly a haven for the self-taught, self-represented, and DIY rogues of the art world — a sort of organized free for all, with one part street art and one part explorations in formalist craft.” ~ ARTINFO
