Highlights and Special Projects at the Armory Show in New York
The Armory Show – Modern on Pier 92 will see a number of historical exhibitions.

NEW YORK, NY.- 243 international galleries are present for the 11th edition of the newly expanded Armory Show, and their exhibits range from contemporary works exclusively made for the fair to museum-quality historical presentations. A new series of Special Projects will punctuate the public areas.

The newly-introduced Special Projects feature a selection of large-scale works and site specific installations transcending the boundaries of individual booths. The projects include a five-paneled 50-foot long spray paint mural painted onsite outside of Pier 94 by Kenny Scharf. Scharf’s Carzy Roy-Al, his customized, glittering, smiling golf-cart, will also be driven between the piers by a spaceman who will occasionally serve donuts. Kris Martin will present a piece entitled Thank You in Pier 94’s lobby that visitors may miss if they don’t look closely. The VIP Lounge in Pier 94 will feature a monumental piece by Richard Dupont featuring 180 cast polyurethane figures, and the exterior will be adorned with an installation by El Anatsui. Pier 92 will welcome visitors with Louise Nevelson’s nine-foot tall Celebration, and its lounges will feature Doug + Mike Starn’s dynamic Amaterasu and George Rickey’s 13-foot tall Open Trapezoids Excentric One Up One Down Variation V.

Many galleries are devoting their stands to single artist installations. In the contemporary section on Pier 94, Ronald Feldman Fine Arts is presenting The Volksboutique Armory Apothecary, where visitors will have the opportunity to describe their maladies to artist Christine Hill, who will prescribe remedies for a small fee. Galerie Laurent Godin will debut Plane Landing in Paris, a new series by Aleksandra Mir, featuring photographs of a helium balloon in the shape and size of a passenger jet plane “landing” in various historic landmarks in Paris. Other notable solo exhibitions include Dasha Shishkin at Zach Feuer, Sarah Braman at Museum 52, James White at Max Wigram, Maria Finn at The Apartment, John Neff at Western Exhibitions, Gyan Panchal at Galerie Frank Elbaz, Matthias Weischer at EIGEN + ART, Hans Josephsohn at Hauser & Wirth and Anton Henning at Galerie Bob Van Orsouw and Stephen Antonakos at Kalfayan Gallery.
