What’s Happening in Contemporary Art: NY Art Fairs 2014

The pulse of the art world is captured at the art fairs that take place in New York City in March every year. The Big Apple buzzes with excitement as throngs of art lovers flock to the art fairs to get a look at art from around the world, and collectors vie to acquire works by leading international artists and hot new talent.

The Armory Show, one of the world’s largest art fairs, is the main attraction, augmented by number of other fairs in NYC the same week, including ADAA The Art Show, Volta NY, and Scope NY.

Check out my photos below of some of the most remarkable artworks at the NY art fairs I attended.
