The Armory Show—my photo friends and I go every year!
3 years ago on Saturday, March 7th, 2009 my friend Edward, who runs Wired New York, organized a meet-up for local photographers at the Armory Show out on Pier 94 by 12th Avenue and the Hudson River—and we've gone to the show every year since!
I have some past blog posts showing the contemporary art that I've admired at the show over the years, and here's another one:
"New York is a lot of work" - $1,000 worth of dollar bills foil stamped by Reed Seifer
From the 'Untitled' Gallery in New York - $576.60 worth of pennies
laid out on the floor by Los Angeles artist Ry Rocklen
From oliva arauna galeria - 'Three Women', consisting of one photograph,
six light projectors and six tripods.
The Armory Fence - site-specific neon installation by Ivan Navarro,
Displayed by Paul Kasmin Gallery
'I Love U' 2009 piece by Kira Kim, made of LED bulbs and mixed media pieces.
