Fountain's move this year into the 69th Regiment Armory marked the 99th anniversary of the original 1913 Armory Show, where Marcel Duchamp — with his readymade upside-down urinal, titled "Fountain" — challenged the perceptions of modern art. Duchamp’s gutsy spirit resonates today in Fountain Art Fair’s attitude and its grassroots environment. 

Fountain Art Fair was founded on the premise of supporting smaller, independent galleries and to give collectors better access to gallerist and artists. Visitors to the fair always enjoy on-site performance art, installations, and daily musical performances. From presenting just 3 local exhibitors at its first fair in 2006, Fountain has grown to represent over 30 American & international galleries, independent artists and collectives.
