Fountain selects galleries based on their dedication to accelerating the arts and rigorous exhibition programs. With an emphasis on originality and quality, hundreds of artists will be showcased, ranging from young stars and mid-career artists to established masters.
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 media branding for fair. Local events and arts culture publication The L Magazine and Brooklyn Magazine return for their 5th year as a media partner. Fountain also welcomes Artcards, a digital publication that believes in the importance of seeing art in person, as a media sponsor.
Fountain Art Fair was founded in 2006 by David Kesting, Lincoln Capla, and John Leo as an attempt to leverage support for smaller independent galleries, collectives and artists who wished to gain access to a larger audience of collectors and critics. From its roots deep within the independent Williamsburg, Brooklyn art scene, Fountain has grown to represent over 60 international avant garde galleries and projects, showcasing progressive primary-market works in New York, Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Fountain Art Fair has received critical acclaim for its uniquely alternative art fair model and genuine dedication to the artists and galleries who share in its vision and ideology. Celebrated as the first of a new influential generation of alternative fairs, Fountain is reinterpreting the concept of the art fair experience and paving a new path for the future of contemporary art.
“The way an art fair should be.” -The Economist
“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
