Photography, which has been in existence for roughly 175 years, is now an everyman’s medium. The 1888 Kodak #1 camera first made the art form broadly accessible; the iPhone has now turned everyone technically proficient. But before Kodak, and long before Apple, photography was a laborious endeavor.
It’s a display of mostly gallery artists, perfunctorily titled Fall 2014 Group Show and hung without an apparent organizing principle. There isn’t even an official closing date.
The ADAA Art Show marked its 25th anniversary this year, and the 2013 edition at the Park Avenue Armory was definitely a very mature, stately fair, with only the slightest of dark undertones to its otherwise unsurprising, but elegantly sleek, presentation.
