SPRING/BREAK Art Fair
February 15, 2020 • 11:00 am - February 16, 2020 PST
The SPRING/BREAK Art Fair is coming to L.A. for its second year. It’s been hosting pop-up fairs across New York for nine years. This fair takes a different spin on the model of an art fair. Rather than inviting galleries to participate, the fair selects curators to choose artists or exhibitions. This helps keep the fair less sales-driven. Director Andrew Gori explained to me, “It’s like a museum show you can buy from.” The fair also forgoes the booth fee for exhibitors, and instead takes a percentage of potential sales (versus some fairs can cost tens of thousands of dollars just to participate). This year, the fair’s theme is “In Excess.” They’re setting up shop in The Row downtown, a new complex in the old American Apparel digs that features local designers, restaurants, and shops. The site’s history sparked a particular resonance with the fair’s theme, as issues of sustainability become increasingly vital across culture, fashion, and consumerism.
