SPRING BREAK . . founded by ANDREW GORI & AMBRE KELLY, has a new location this year, looking to be a better and bigger exhibition space. good-bye little red schoolhouse on PRINCE ST, hello:

‘THE DREAMS THAT I GAVE HER’ … includes original writing, music, and visual art created specifically for this event. In conjunction with NARS Foundation curators KELLI BURTON and YULIA TOPCHIY have organized a creative project that involves 30 New York-based artists. The participants consist of 10 writers, 10 musicians, and 10 visual artists …
The 10 writers were asked to craft a new poem or short story. The writing pieces were then distributed anonymously to the 10 musicians and 10 visual artists. They then had one month to use their designated writing piece as inspiration for an original song recording and an original visual artwork in the medium of their choice. The opening which took place on Sat, Jan 24, 2015 revealed the collaborators to each other as well the display of the artworks. There will be printed books available which contain the 10 writing pieces with an attached sound card containing the 10 digital recordings of the inspired songs.
the participating artists:
Chris Bors, Eric Brown, Anelise Chen, Michael Crowe, Matt Duncan, Alaina Ferris & Matt Schlatter, Alan and Michael Fleming, Catherine Foulkrod, Rita Ikonen, Invisible Things, Melissa Godoy Nieto, Alison Kuo, Cate Marvin, Noveller, Cate Peebles, Walter Robinson, Bill Santen, Adam Sipe, Amanada Stern, Christopher Swetals, The Tablets, Tarwuk, JD Walsh, The Westerlies, Whale Belly, Woodsy Pride, Writer, Jessica Wynne, and James Yeh.
Alan and Michael Fleming’s shows have been reviewed several times on artlovers, as have those of my long time friend, and former editor at artnet – Walter Robinson.
