Contemporaneous Extension


It Depends on Who you Depend on

The last of my official coverage of Armory Week appears on Whitewall Magazine’s website. I checked out the Dependent Art Fair like everyone else between the ages of 18 and 35 this weekend in the art community. I was mildly surprised at the lackadaisical vibe of the show despite the number of stellar participants. There were a few diamonds, particularly 2-UP, Cleopatra‘s, and Paradise. By the end of my time there, I felt like a mouse in a maze stifled by crude video art and body odor. I think the most necessary components for next year’s incarnation (should it come to fruition) is a better space and a little more conscious thought.

Read my review here.
