Fountain Art Fair is more than a white wall with carefully hung artwork. For one thing, it is on a boat, so you can't (really) use a level. Fountain is a space for splendor and spectacle. Cue some fantastic midnight mischief when a masked, befurred figure revved his chainsaw in the middle of the opening, silently menacing the display.
No artworks were harmed in the making of this moment.
Cheap & Plastique soldiered on, with artists Kelsey Bennett, Heather Morgan, Christine Navin and Nathan Wasserbauer making a charming debut at Fountain for the magazine.
The sights and sounds were overwhelming, from the expansive street art display to Jesus stripping down to the altogether. Drinks flowed and Miss Morgan achieved a new personal best in most hotdogs consumed in one day.
What is impossible to convey is the sound of the wind on the tent, the rolling of the waves, the laughter and noise of the crowd. Thank you to our hosts, our friends and our fellow exhibitors for making the boat rock!
