Contributed by Fay Sanders and Bob Szantyr / New York art fair season is here, and SPRING/BREAK, in its eighth year, has mounted another bold and energized display of contemporary art in an unexpected space. The new location, in a United Nations building, hosts a six-day presentation of work by over 400 artists. More than 100 curators have taken a shot at the timely theme “Fact and Fiction,” which seems perfect in terms of the new UN location, as well as ideally suited to painting approaches. Alternative realities – utopian, dystopian, and in between – are everywhere. This big, rich display of sculpture, painting, drawing, video, performance, and of course wallpaper offers something for everyone. Here are ten paintings that caught our attention.
