What to Know: A delightful upstart-turned Armory Week mainstay, this beloved fair founded and directed by artist couple Andrew Gori and Ambre Kelly turns 10 this year, believe it or not. In celebration of the anniversary edition, Spring/Break will work its magic at the former Ralph Lauren offices on Madison Avenue for the third straight year. Over 110 curated projects will transform dull cubicles into thoughtful displays, many of which will feature fantastical, over-the-top art installations.
Undoubtedly the best New York City fair at which to snap up emerging artists at reasonable price points before they hit it big, Spring/Break always has an overarching curatorial theme. This year it’s “Naked Lunch,” which Gori and Kelly envision as an exploration of the present moment as a kind of neo-Renaissance, with a return to nature and a focus on the body and figuration, contrasted with the ongoing forces of political and cultural struggle.
Health and Safety: Masks recommended regardless of vaccination status. Proof of vaccination not required.
