Fountain Miami 2007 / Glowlab Gallery



 

At Fountain, Glowlab presents works by Kurt Bigenho, Bethany Bristow,  Jason Cantoro, Cathelijn van Goor, Alice Jarry, Heather L.  Johnson,  David Kesting, the Mobile Performance Group, Roberto Mollá, Mark Price and Swoon. In media including works on paper, prints, embroidery, sculpture, painting and performance, Glowlab’s installation features densely layered landscapes and imaginary visual territories where hand-drawn characters, abstracted figures and post-apocalyptic androids make their way through urban architectures and experimental structures in a collective, psychogeographic tale of the tenuous relationships between humans and their comfort zones.
“Fountain Miami” is a guerrilla-style art fair - under the radar, but highly influential. “Fountain” was launched in March 2006 in New York, in an effort to leverage support for independent galleries largely overlooked by corporate-sponsored art fairs. In defiant contrast with both Art Basel Miami Beach, Pulse, Scope and the slew of other International art fairs, “Fountain” has received wide public support and critical acclaim for its independent slant. This independent aspect gives Fountain its edge: young galleries showcasing fresh work without official booth spaces or selection committee juries. In form and spirit, the artwork shown truly reflects the avant-garde and in-your-face attitude equated with the Dada movement.

Fountain Art Fair New York 2012 / Kesting Ray Gallery



KESTING / RAY is pleased to return to Fountain New York for the 2012 edition and 7th annual fair in NY. With Fountain’s move to the 69th Regiment Armory, a well known icon with historic context in the American Art Scene, KESTING / RAY will unveil a collection of artworks from; Brian Leo, Beka Goedde, Swoon, Ben Wolf, Alyssa Dennis, Stephanie Dotson and Roberto Molla.

Fountain Art Fair opens this Friday, March 9th, unleashing an unparallelled platform of nearly 60 exhibitors, artist projects, performance artists and musical guests for its 7th annual New York exhibition. Fountain in thrilled to be taking place at the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue and 25th st, location of the original 1913 Armory Show, and the venue where Marcel Duchamp exhibited the notorious ready-made namesake of the fair, Fountain.

Fountain, brainchild of Lincoln Capla, David Kesting, and John Leo, held its inaugural New York exhibition in 2005 as an attempt to gain leverage for young, independent galleries with strong, aggressive campaigns. This first show featured a mere three Brooklyn-based galleries, and boasted a fresh DIY attitude that catered to a yet untouched niche of the art fair scene. As Fountain continues to expand, the fair maintains at its heart a raw, unfettered spirit that distinguishes it from other art fairs.

Fountain remains true to its Brooklyn roots with a heavy contingency of exhibitors and sponsors from that creatively booming borough.
