Well Christmas in the art world. This weekend all of the world’s galleries and art folk descend on our fair city. Last year was my first year at the Armory show, it was quite overwhelming and pretty fascinating. I waited outside for over an hour to get in, and just gave up on using the bathroom. Everyone seemed to know each other, there was lots of air kissing and some very interesting outfits and shoes. To be honest, most of the art was god awful, other than a few standouts. The only things I actually remember were a rhinestone Marilyn by Vik Muniz, the Eggelston 5X7’s and an amazing sculpture piece of Araki 6×7 positive films negs suspend in a giant glass holder. Other than that I draw a complete blank. This year I am planning to make the rounds of all the events, as I am shopping for galleries myself. I am very interested in places outside of NYC. I think there are a lot of interesting things happening in the European art scene. Although, I know these fairs happen several times a year all over the world. In New York, this is our moment to see the best and worst of what art from around the globe has to offer. I hope to run into some of you out there over the weekend.
Also, if you are in LA this Saturday, my project is part of Slideluck Potshow LA.
