The contemporary art world converges in New York City this week for the annual Armory Show and other art fairs around Manhattan. I enjoy attending the New York art fairs each year, and here I am again, in search of engaging artworks for my clients.
The 2012 edition of The Armory Show art fair is scaled down in size from previous years, which I found to be a good thing. More meat, less fat!
Preview night of Art Los Angeles Contemporary was enlivened by an installation created with 25 tons of dry ice and glowing flares. Presented by Judy Chicago and Materials & Applications, the piece is a reinvention of Disappearing Environments, a 1968 work by Judy Chicago, Lloyd Hamrol, and Eric Orr.
Art Los Angeles Contemporary, the international contemporary art fair of the West Coast, brings together 70 blue chip and emerging galleries from around the world with a focus on Los Angeles galleries. Visit ALAC January 19-22, 2012 at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California.
In addition to Pacific Standard Time, the unprecedented collaboration of more than sixty cultural institutions across Southern California coming together to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene, three art fairs launch this weekend in Los Angeles:
Art Platform – Los Angeles – Over 90 exhibitors gather at the LA Mart downtown, presenting an expansive assemblage of contemporary art, ranging from exciting works by emerging artists to international blue-chip art.
Pulse Los Angeles – The Pulse art fair takes place on the Event Deck at LA Live, focusing on interesting and relatively affordable contemporary art.
I am pleased to share my top picks from my visits to the New York art fairs this past week. Get a taste here of exciting artworks by new rising stars as well as accomplished contemporary artists, from PULSE, SCOPE and INDEPENDENT art fairs. (See my last blog for my picks of The Armory Show.)
It’s that time of year again….New York is bursting at the seams with art and festivities during the annual Armory Arts Week.
I am pleased to share highlights with you as I attend fairs throughout the city.
I hope you had a chance to visit Photo LA 2011 and peruse the vast array of vintage and contemporary photographs. Dealers from around the world exhibited, with galleries from the U.S., France, United Kingdom, Germany, The Netherlands, Australia and China.
