Spring/Break Art Show opened admission to its March 2019 art fair with the theme "FACT AND FICTION." Applications for curators opened on October 1, 2018 and continue through November 19, 2018 to participate in its New York City art fair during Armory Art Fair Week. New for 2019 is a partnership with Times Square Arts allowing for site-specific installations at the Times Square Broadway Plazas between 42nd and 47th Streets. Proposals for the public exhibitions also opened on October 1 and continue through November 1, 2018 with artists and curators encouraged to apply.

For the 2019 art fair, the theme "FACT AND FICTION" seeks to explore the paradoxes through art that deal with self-mythology, history, memory, cultural conspiracy, propaganda, appropriation, psychedelia and/or subjects related to the unprovable:  the occult, religious topics, the pseudoscientific, pseudohistorical, pseudepigrahica to mythopoetica. For details and a fuller explanation of the theme with the required reading list, click here.

Spring/Break Art Show sets itself apart each art fair week by presenting a curator-forward art fair with all presentations required to develop or interpret a specific theme. Previous themes have included "Stranger Comes to Town" (2018); "Black Mirror" (2017); "CopyPaste" (2016); "Transaction" (2015); and "Public Private" (2014).
