Change is overrated. Largely the fair is the same. Maybe a little less pell-mell than in recent years but the same format; the same forgotten Modern wing; and the same second-run to the Frieze fair later in the Spring. More of this phantom “change” in coming years may amount to something. Fingers crossed.
Until then, there are always gems. Great works. A few decent booths. And an interesting rush of Cuban galleries. Kudos. Below is a selection of works that I want to remember and keep track of. Probably more telling of my bias than specifically Armory-ness. It was at the Gramercy Hotel version of this fair that I saw my first Bassman print. Such kismet that her work at Houk would be the first shot across my bow at the 2017 going.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”2223,2217,2215,2221,2205,2219,2213,2207,2209,2211″ layout=”3″ gallery_style=”1″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
