Everyone’s a curator! Especially so at the Spring/Break Art Show, New York’s “curator-driven” art fair, which will return to the city in March for its fifth annual iteration. Coinciding with Armory Week, the fair will run from March 2 through 7 at the James A. Farley Post Office Building nearby Penn Station in Manhattan. The fair has announced its slate of curators, which is, in keeping with past years, ample.
More than 100 curators will be involved in putting forth exhibitions that hew to the fair’s central theme, CopyPaste (“stylized as ⌘COPY⌘PASTE,” according to a release), driving home the well-established trope of “remix,” “everyone is a curator” culture. (A theme perhaps prefigured by Dustin Yellin at the fair last year, when he remixed $10,000 in legal tender into eight $10,000 paintings.) The list of curatorial participants, copy-pasted from a release made exclusively available to ARTINFO by Spring/Break’s organizers, follows below.
Participating curators include: A. Moret, Aaron Levi Garvey, Adam G. Mignanelli, Adam Mignanelli, Adam Parker Smith, AJ Hughes, Alejandro Jassan, Alex Sewell, Alex McQuilkin + Andy Mister, Alva Calymayor, Ambre Kelly + Andrew Gori, Andrea McGinty, Arielle de Saint Phalle + Taylor Roy, Cade Tompkins (Cade Tompkins Projects), Caroline Tilleard + Anna Maria Cuevas, Catherine Mahoney, Ché Morales + Amanda Uribe, Chris Bors, Christopher Stout + Will Hutnick, Claire Mirocha + Vanessa Thill, Corey Oberlander + Lindsey Stapleton, David Packer, Dennis Dawson, Elisabeth Smolarz + Jamie Diamond + Lauren Silberman, Elizabeth Denny, Elizabeth Keithline, Emily Davidson + Stuart Lorimer, Emily Kiacz, Eve Sussman + Simon Lee, Fanny Allié + Ketta Ioannidou, Jac Lahav + Adam Thompson + Susannah Palmer, Jacob Rhodes, Jennifer Sullivan, Jennifer McCoy + Jennifer Dalton, Jessica Hodin, Jo Shane + Maripol, Jon Lutz, Jonah Freeman, Juliette Premmereur + Nicole Grammatico, Kara Brooks, Kari Adelaide + Max Razdow, Karin Bravin, Katherine Aungier + Alta Buden, Katya Valevich + Julie Solovyeva, Kelly Schroer, Kevin Van Gorp + Shen-Shen Wu (101/EXHIBIT), Kirk Stoller, Krista Saunders Scenna, Kristin Sancken, Lalita Salander + Patrick Jaojoco, Magdalena Sawon, Magdalyn Asimakis, Marc Azoulay, Margaret Lanzetta, Marie Salomé Peyronnel, Marly Hammer, Maureen Sullivan, Mebrak Tareke, Melinda Wang, Michael Gaughran, Michael Valinsky + Gabrille Jensen, Katharine Mulherin (Mulherin Toronto New York), Myla Dalbesio, Nati Hyojin Kim + Kat JK Lee, Nick Doyle, Patrick Mohundro, Rachel Phillips, Rémy Bennett + Kelsey Bennett + 1985, Renée Fox (Shulamit Nazarian), Vanessa Albury + Rachel Rampleman + Lynn Maliszewski, Rachel G Barnard, Robert Dimin, Sarah G Sharp + Parsley Steinweiss, Teriha Yaegashi + Juliette Premmereur + Ella Marder, Vince Contarino + Brian Balderston + Chad Stayrook + José Ruiz, and Yulia Topchiy.
