Fountain New York 2011
The Frying Pan (26th St. & the Hudson, Manhattan)
Fountain was founded in 2006 as an attempt to leverage support for smaller independent galleries to gain access to larger collectors and critics. Since its inception, Fountain has held three exhibitions in New York, one in Chicago and is preparing for its fourth exhibition in Miami.
Typically Fountain takes place at a large warehouse venue in close proximity to other art fairs such as The Armory or Art Basel Miami Beach. Participating galleries receive 500 – 1400 square foot booths as exhibition space and are given several days to prepare installations not usually found in an art fair.
