Prologue: Armory Coverage

This week has been BANANAS!!!

Conquerred:

The Armory Show, Independent, The Dependent, Salon Zurcher, Fountain, The Art Show, PooL.

I wish I could have made it out to Volta and Verge, but alas being my mother’s bed-maid on Thursday was more important. Regardless, I’m looking forward to reflecting upon the week. I’ll be doing a few updates with some gems in the days to come. For now, though, check out the review of The Art Show I wrote for Hyperallergic. A small, introductory preview:

“The Art Show has been hosted by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) for the last 23 years, reigning supreme as the longest running national art fair. The ADAA consists of 175 galleries but only seventy exhibitors enrolled this year, excluding stunners like Andrea Rosen, Betty Cunningham, PPOW and Gavin Brown. A large majority of the participants are located uptown between 50th Street and 90th Street. The generalized content (“cutting-edge, 21st century works” and “museum quality pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries”) and my fears of dated academia prepped me for the deflated viewing that was The Art Show.”
