Like a noble grizzly emerging, famished and irritable, from her den after months of hibernation, the New York art world is roaring aggressively into action for the annual Armory Week fairs.
It’s time for the art world’s annual migration to the far, far, far west side of Midtown Manhattan for the Armory Show and its many satellite art fairs.
Most art fairs in New York City this week are bombastic affairs. New City Art Fair, by contrast, is not one of them. The mission of this fair is to feature original artwork by contemporary Japanese artists. To achieve this goal, Kentaro Totsuka, the director of New City, invited eleven Japanese galleries to display their wares.
