About SPRING/BREAK

SPRING/BREAK Art Show is an internationally recognized exhibition platform using underused, atypical and historic New York City exhibition spaces to activate and challenge the traditional cultural landscape of the art market, typically but not exclusively during Armory Arts Week.  The 9th Annual New York City exhibition will be held from March 3rd  – March 9th, 2020.

By first inhabiting St. Patrick’s Old School, and then the former James A. Farley Post Office, Condé Nast building, and UN Plaza building, the initiative offers independent curators free space within New York City landmarks, past and future. In exchange for no-cost exhibition space, visionary perspectives both established and unknown are charged with engaging these areas under a unifying theme and pushed to extend the boundries of typical market week practices, low overhead and shifting curatorial themes their assets to this end.

Performance Collaboration: The Moving Architects and Visual Artist Crystal Gregory

Crystal Gregory’s work investigates the intersection between textile and architecture. In “The Event of a Thread,” Gregory’s materials are those of support and change. Scaffolding is used to build, clean or repair, textile is used to protect or shield, and concrete pipes contain and carry. Pairing seemingly opposite worlds together, Gregory inverts material stereotypes while considering the life of each thread, “individually it is prone to stress, strain, and breakage, but as a collective the burden of tension becomes bearable.”

Gregory’s work is overlaid with The Moving Architects’ “Demure as Dynamite,” a dance intervention wherein women activate the materials of the sculpture through gesture and movement. The dancers also share the narrative of the choreography, which looks to portraits of women in the bible as depicted in the poetry of Thomas John Carlisle — Carlisle Norton’s late grandfather. Shamefulness, submissiveness, vitality, and heroism are traits pulled from the prose, thereby giving voice to faceless historical women in sections that reveal the darker underbelly of the female experience and sections that embrace the significance of camaraderie and generosity connecting women from biblical times through today.
