Our Favorite Rooms at Spring/Break Art Show

The SPRING/BREAK Art Show returned for its sixth annual art fair during Armory Arts Week yesterday. SPRING/BREAK Art Show is an internationally recognized exhibition platform using underused historic New York City spaces to activate and challenge the traditional cultural landscape of the art market. The curator-driven fair, found a home at 4 Times Square, yes the old Condé Nast Building. The fair will run through March 6 from 11am to 6pm.


Besides trying to figure out where Anna Wintour’s old office was, we spent the better part of the day hopping in and out of offices that were converted into galleries and site-specific installations. From Jason Peter’s completely darkened room, which examined human perception to Dr. Lisa Levy’s makeshift psychiatry office, here are some of our favorite rooms.
