The avant-garde has always laid claim to history through its challenges and victories over the status quo. In the spirit of New York?s first Armory Show in 1913, three of Williamsburg?s most brash and cutting-edge galleries, Capla Kesting, Front Room, and McCaig-Welles have collaborated to mount ?Fountain? their own ?Salon de Refuse.? They have selected a spacious street level special-event hall across Twelfth Avenue from Pier 90 in direct confrontation with, and running for the entire duration of the Armory Show.
It is entirely appropriate that ?Fountain? (the title Duchamp gave to a ?ready-made? urinal) is the chosen moniker for this independent, experimental, mini art fair. It is the Duchampian spirit of philosophic irony, and aesthetic shifting as well as the provocations to institutionalized middle-class mores that have established Williamsburg as the hottest of hot-beds in New York?s world class art scene.
Come and experience the unfiltered, uncouth and enterprising excitement of ?Fountain.? See advanced art as it was meant to be seen, without blinders, without ?taste merchants,? straight from the source.
