Nola Romano for Arcilesi & Homberg Fine Art
Entering its 8th year, Fountain has sometimes been considered the more punk rock of the art fairs. Initially because of the raucous parties and later hours, the fair has has embraced this aesthetic by showing a collection of riskier work and new faces from across the globe. In their words, Fountain is “the foundation upon which a whole generation of working artists and galleries are able to engage the global art market on their own terms.” There was strong sculptural work and a focus on Asian artists throughout. Going along with the unique work displayed, the fair took place during Armory Week in a beautiful armory of its own at Lexington and 26th st. Check out some highlights below.
