The 2016 edition of the Armory Show art fair opens to the public tomorrow, but already during today’s preview piers 92 and 94 were crawling with collectors, curators, and critics.
Lost in a Metro-North commuter train daze, I watched the Wassaic Project pass by the train window without recognizing it. But the giant slingshot and makeshift teepees that decorated the lush green grass next to a towering grain elevator hinted that artists and their ilk may be nearby. Inside, I would find works by Eric Fischl, Agnes Martin, Gary Hume, Richard Prince, Dieter Roth, Rebecca Horn, Gerhard Richter and Imi Knoebel … among others.
Here is an extravaganza of slideshows from the big cross section of 7 art fairs and one private museum show I attended while in Miami and haven’t written about yet. Enjoy the journey into the dark corners of the Miami fairs.
