Although it’s moving to a larger space than ever before, Fountain Art Fair is still the most alternative and independent art fair around.
For its seventh New York incarnation, Fountain will be exhibiting at the 69th Regiment Armory, the site of the original 1913 Armory Show that launched the fame of Marcel Duchamp’s “Fountain” to the world. Now the iconic sculpture’s namesake is coming home.
Visitors will experience Fountain’s signature street-art installation, while a frenzy of artistic and musical performances will share the space with over 30 international exhibitors at the new landmark location.
Things are getting bigger and better at Fountain, which is launching a new and improved VIP program. What does that mean? VIPs receive a host of benefits including priority access to the fair’s VIP preview on March 9, access to an exclusive lounge with open bar, special artist-led tours of the fair, reciprocal admittance to Volta NY, gifts from their sponsors and complementary coat check.
We have FIVE pairs of VIP tickets to give away to our readers and all you have to do to qualify is to enter your name and email below by Wednesday, March 7th at 5PM.
The contest is now closed. Thanks to all that entered to win. For those that didn’t win, there are discounted tickets available online at fountainartfair.eventbrite.com
