Fountain Art Fair was founded in 2006 to leverage support for smaller independent galleries to gain access to larger collectors and critics. Since its inception, Fountain has held six exhibitions in Miami, one in Chicago and Los Angeles, and is now celebrating its seventh exhibition in New York. From its roots deep within the independent Williamsburg art scene, Fountain has grown to represent over 30 international avant-garde galleries and projects.
