The avant-garde has always laid claim to history through its challenges and victories over the status quo. In 1917, at the unjuried Society of Artists exhibition, Marcel Duchamp unveiled the world's most famous ready-made art object: "Fountain." It is in this spirit of the unexpected that some of Williamsburg, Brooklyn's most forward-thinking and cutting-edge galleries, Capla Kesting Fine Art, Front Room, Glowlab, McCaig-Welles Gallery and Outrageous Look have collaborated to present Fountain New York 2007. Expect floor-to-ceiling displays of brand- new works, bold installations, impromptu performance events and the best parties of the weekend, as this exhibition makes its mark in a massive 5000 square foot space at 660 12th Avenue, a few blocks from the Armory show at Pier 94.
Fountain is made possible in part by the support of arts services organizations including the Brooklyn Arts Council, Fractured Atlas, Nurture Art and the Williamsburg Gallery Association.
