The Armory Show

POST #    849

Yesterday, I went over to Hell's Kitchen (screw that Midtown West/Clinton crap) to check out The Armory Show at Pier 90 and 92 (at 50th and 52nd Sts.). The Armory Show bills itself as the "International Fair of New Art, is the world's leading art fair devoted exclusively to contemporary art." The show featured work from about 175 art galleries from around the world.

There was an insane amount of art, some of which was insane. $17 to get in, with what had to be the most art for the buck in the city yesterday. It was packed, but cool to check out nonetheless. I'm no art critic, but there were plenty of pieces that were really nice, and some that were really confusing. But that's modern art for you, no?

it should be noted that while i took pictures of these, i don't necessarily think they were good. i just liked the photos.

I went to The Armory Show on Sunday and even though it did get packed rather quickly, (hard to maneuver in my wheelchair two hours into the program), it was certainly well worth it. Those photos show just a tip of the massive artistic iceberg of modern art displayed that day. (That monkey cracked me up)! Cannot wait for the weather to improve so I can go visit some of the NY galleries that displayed their works.
