The Spring/Break Art Show of curators shows everything from the sublime to real trash. The next big thing may be in there somewhere. Some critics insist this is the best of the Armory Week shows. The next big thing is probably just around the corner. You didn’t see it? Go see for yourself.
The Show takes advantage of unused office space in the City. Clever idea.
7th Spring/Break Art Show 2018
The Spring/Break Art Show 2018 opens with a preview at 4 Times Square in Manhattan on Tuesday, March 6, 2018. The show runs through Monday.
Like the rest of the art world, the 2018 Spring/Break Art Show looks at migration with its theme, Stranger Comes to Town. The theme is based on the adage, “All great literature is one of two stories: a hero goes on a journey, or a stranger comes to town.” The quote has been attributed to everyone from Dostoyevsky to John Gardner.
“Stranger Comes to Town”
I have studied the origins of culture every day for the last five years. Purity is baloney. We mix and we grow. We mix and we grow. It has been like this since the very beginning of life. Migration has been occurring since we got two legs. Anyone who wants to sell you some purity is trying to rip you off.
