5. Spring/Break Art Show 2016
This will be the fifth year for the popular Spring/Break Art Show, with a theme for participating curators of ⌘COPY⌘PASTE, and works that represent “new appropriation, copyright pilfer, whistleblower melange, and the art historical miss-match.” One good example is in room 4118 of the exhibit entitled Shifted Memories, curated by artist Fanny Allié, and Ketta Ioannidou where seven artists encode, store and recall past recollections, in an act of removing selected data from its original position, copying and pasting it to create a duplicate.
Spring/Break is located at the Skylight at Moynihan Station, 421 Eighth Avenue at West 31st Street, main post office entrance. As part of Armory Art Week, Spring/Break will be on view from March 2-7, with proceeds from ticket sales helping to support the initiative to offer free exhibition space to independent curators.
