Art Fair Conversations – Armory Arts Week, 2010

Clayton Price, "Unheeded Warning" (2001) at Verge

This is the busiest – and many people would say the most important – week in the New York City art calendar. The Armory Show itself, on the west side’s Piers 92 and 94, is one of the world’s most significant art fairs. Every year it attracts […]

“Everybody is very excited!” – Robert Ayers in conversation with Katelijne de Backer.

Katelijne de Backer

This Wednesday, March 3, sees the opening of the twelfth edition of the Armory Show, the biggest yet, with almost 300 galleries exhibiting. Of course the Armory Show’s arrival in New York City each spring is not simply about one of the world’s most important art fairs. There is the palpable […]

Armory Week in review: Robert Ayers’s scorecard

Felipe Jesus Consalvos,"Fictional Aspects of a Fact" (c.1920-50)

Alexis Hubshman

The almost over-energetic Alexis Hubshman is director of SCOPE, the fair that won’t sit still. One day he’s talking about new SCOPEs in Madrid or Dubai, the next he’ll tell you about the SCOPE Foundation and its commissioning program, or the new cinema series, or whatever next new […]

Personal recommendations: the pick of PULSE

Chris Jordan, "Lightbulbs" (2009), $25,000

For the second year running PULSE have come up with a quite splendid fair on Pier 40. Thought-provoking, entertaining, wide-ranging, and even surprising, these are all words that I would happily apply to the art down there, and […]

On the fingers of one hand: Pool’s Thierry Alet reminds us that “there is no recession for independent artists.”

Thierry Alet

There is virtue in brevity, as my friends at ARTINFO are constantly reminding me, and I have particular respect for Jacquelyn Lewis and her principal of narrowing things down to manageable groups of five. I have shamelessly pinched the idea behind her blog Finding […]
