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.
