Republic Worldwide is excited to announce our collaborative partnership with Keith Schweitzer of MaNY and this years  Fountain Art Fair Miami 2012. We are also excited about the talented line up of artists that we will be exhibiting in our featured booth at Fountain this December 6-9. Over the last 7 years Fountain Art Fair has received critical acclaim for its uniquely alternative art fair model and genuine dedication to the artists and galleries who share in it’s vision and ideology. Celebrated as the first of a new generation of influential alternative fairs, Fountain has reinterpreted the concept of the art fair experience and now represents over 65 international avant-garde galleries including Republic Worldwide in New York, concurrent with The Armory Show and in Miami, concurrent with Art Basel Miami Beach. This years artists at Republic Worldwide include Hayley McCulloch, Fedele Spadafora, Levan Mindishvalli, Uta Bekaia, Willard Morgan of Ideal Glass, Blake Sandberg, Seze Devres, Sean McGurn, Eric Diehl, Julia Samuels, Doug Parry, Ian McGillivray, Cia Pedi and Sirikul Pattachote.



This year Fountain is larger and more engaging than ever and Republic Worldwide will be right there at the heart of the festivities. In addition to the exhibitors, artists, performers, Dj’s and headliners like J. Patt of the Knocks and the fresh from Bushwick- TIKIDISCO, Fountain is also partnering with local Miami organizations such as, Art Cycle Bike Tours and ROAM guided walking tours to bring you the Wynwood Community Lounge. At the Republic Worldwide/Fountain Community Lounge you can learn more about the history of Wynwood, register for guided tours through the neighborhood, and meet local artists who draw inspiration from hometown pride. In conjunction with the community lounge, Fountain will be releasing a limited edition map of the neighborhood in partnership with ARTcycle, a community based art collective and street art bike tour, designed to encourage visitors to explore the real Wynwood and the creative culture that goes on long after the Basel Art Fair circus has left town.

Digital Rituals, February 2009 – Republic WW

New art in the fourth dimension-

February 21 – March 1, 2009

Bushwick, Brooklyn



As the tools artists use to more accurately represent the fruits of their imagination continue to evolve, the deep psychological drive to interpret the world in a visual symbolic language is as rooted in the same unanswerable wonder at the great mysteries of life as it has ever been. The artist has always been a sort of shaman negotiating these unfamiliar waters and the shaman has always been the activator of ritual mystery objects and images. In doing so he has always been the intermediary, negotiating a thinly veiled differentiation between the great mysteries of life and our daily routine. For these artists/shamans the tools of our creative expression have never been more powerful and have never before possessed so much potential to interrupt the linear history of the art world in such a profound and fundamental way. As technology ages, artists and scientists are developing new work with more diversity and skill than ever before. New technology has delivered new ways of manipulating and executing ingenious representations of those mythical, complex personal and archetypal expressions. Not too long ago, in the analogue world, the future seemed so far away. Today as we rocket through the 21st century there is an overwhelming sense in the commercial world and in our home and studio life that the future is now. On February 21, 2009 REPUBLIC in conjunction with the epic new show space JUNGLE will bring it to you. In the spirit of a post Paik and prime time Viola world, DIGITAL RITUALS; New Art in the Fourth Dimension is an exhibition of digital projections, audio performance, interactive sculpture and photography that attempts to stroke your sense of wonder.

Formations, May 2009 – Republic WW

May 7 – May 29, 2009

D.U.M.B.O., Brooklyn


Spring is the season of luscious colorful rebirth and heavy rains that fertilize the earth and the human spirit. There is something so enchanting about the first spring sunshine and the anticipation of resplendent green all around inspires the sincerest forms of creation. In that spirit, REPUBLIC presents Formations. If REPUBLIC is the meeting of varied minds that transcend the sum of its parts, then the first stage in harnessing such a unique array of talents is to make a plan for construction. In conjunction with the launch of our new website:, Formations presents the idea that throughout Spring the world is focused on building new things out of the remains of what has passed. It is a time to pay special service to those artists who have concentrated their gifts on the idea of building upon the foundations of fundamental ideas that are ripe for reinterpretation by a new eager generation. On May 7th 2009 at the Pochron Gallery in D.U.M.B.O., REPUBLIC brings you an exhibition that will stroke your joy for spring by exciting you with color, form and energy. The event begins at 6pm, when the website goes live. Drinks, T-shirts, and posters are available and profits will benefit our May 29th collaborative fundraiser with Create for a Cause.

Great Expectations at P.S. 122, March 2010 – Republic WW

To benefit the Cooke Center For Learning and Development and The Pure Vision Arts Center

March 9 – March 15, 2010



REPUBLIC Worldwide presents Great Expectations, the final event of our four tier project with Cooke’s Center for Learning and Development. Tuesday March 9, 2010 at PS122. Students, parents, teachers, and friends started to trickle in before the event was scheduled to begin and the gallery was packed up until we had to close the doors around 7:30.

To say the night was a success is an understatement, it was an incredibly emotional and exciting night for all who attended. Everyone was filled with pride as the amazing students of Cooke Center walked through the gallery, realizing they are real artists and can accomplish anything they dream of. Never before has REPUBLIC Worldwide witnessed so many expressions of true joy and delight while looking at art.

The outsider artists from Pure Vision were inspiring; through each piece students saw the potential of their own work. The room was vivid with color and the pop culture characters by Stephan Kramer were a huge hit with everyone.

REPUBLIC Worldwide wants to thank all the teachers and administrators from Cooke Center, specifically Mary Munsch and Ayde Rayas, for giving us the opportunity to work with inspirited students, Pam Rogers from Pure Vision for loaning us stunning pieces for the show, and Susan Schreiber at PS122 for donating the space. Thank you everyone who attended and made this an event that REPUBLIC Worldwide will always remember.

Town & Country, June 2011 – Republic WW

Curated by Jason Patrick Voegele of Republic Worldwide, Samson Contompasis of The Marketplace Gallery, Keith Schweitzer of M.A.N.Y. and Tyler Wriston of The B.A.C.
Hosted by 320 Studios at 320 West 37th Street, 14th Floor
June 28 – June 30, 2011


Concept by Jason Patrick Voegele

Much of what we know and how we learn comes through the study of explicit or subtle comparisons and contrasts. Meaningful opportunities for these comparative studies invite us into a more explicit and intentional approach that can both broaden our understanding of contemporary American art and help us draw connections and distinctions between the studio practices and conceptual intentions of today’s American Artist.

Much like the rest of the western world, our press, politics, and creative arts thrive on the institutions we have erected to illuminate our differences. We are often reduced to the divisive labels of righteous and heretical, pious and secular, liberal and conservative, formal and conceptual, urban and rural. Dressed up in the costume of duality it appears that we are a bisected people from the fundamentals to our personal tastes. This exhibition challenges those preconceived notions and offers a unique window into the collaborative state of American art. As a people, our founding fathers had faith in the principals of open dialogue, freedom of expression and the multiplicity of our intellectual and creative capacity to bind various philosophies into one singular union. As an exhibition, Town & Country celebrates these great strengths and offers up a chance to draw attention to the ties that bind us as a great creative culture wherever we are from. Through this lens, Town & Country proposes a new vision of American art reinterpreted for a new generation.

Artists include: Scott Michael Ackerman, Doug Auld, Paul Brainard, White Cocoa, Hannah Cole,Annika Conner, Helen Dennis, Eric Diehl, Ira Eduardovna, Tara de la Garza, Charles Koegel, Elizabeth Livingston, Frodo Mikkelsen, OLEK, Sirikul Pattachote, Patrick Porter, Leon Reid IV, Julia Samuels,Tom Sanford, Chris Stain, Veng and Emma Wasielke.
