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 after the jump.

A self-described art junkie, Andrew Hosner co-founded Thinkspace Gallery with his wife Shawn and their partner L. Croskey as a natural progression of his passion for the New Contemporary Art Scene in Los Angeles. Since its inception in 2005, Thinkspace has been one of the first galleries to give many of the artists who have graced the pages of Hi-Fructose — like Audrey Kawasaki, Stella Im Hultberg, Natalia Fabia, Kukula, Andrew Hem and more — major exhibitions that helped launch their careers. Andrew Hosner sat down with Hi-Fructose to discuss the origins of Thinkspace, his role as the gallery’s curator and his prodigious, private art collection. Read our conversation after the jump.
