SPRING is an exhibit space that works in the manner of a magazine.

It is a collective, resource center, brain trust and think tank - the starting point for the active participation of a variable group to create stimulating exhibits that are not limited to one medium and look into the different possible development of a theme.
We invite curators, artists, designers and writers to collaborate on specific projects. It is an ambitious and exciting idea that would like to promote thinking, explore new exchanges and provide a link to and association with innovative projects.

We plan three to four main issues per year and some smaller 'articles' or 'special issues'. Topics span through all aspects of Art, Fashion, Design, Music and include all mediums. SPRING will tie in with existing shows and help in importing them to New York, giving exposure and creating a new exchange.
We are looking for advertisers to underwrite specific shows and the project as a whole. These sponsors will benefit by association with SPRING, an exciting concept and will help us support and develop new ideas, such as:
Best Bets: part of the space is dedicated to a store, which showcases artists work, carefully selected design items. the store will also present items that are pertinent to the current show.

Global Scouts: sampling worldwide - London, Paris, Berlin, Milano, Roma, Beijing, Tokyo and more - SPRING will add an extra element that allows to develop a truly multicultural network and bring awareness to our project.
