Arts: The Armory Show in its 14th Year

Photos from
The 14th Annual Armory Show is taking place next weekend in New York from Thursday, March 8th through Sunday March, 11th.  The Armory Show features some of the best of today's modern and contemporary art from living artists around the world. It takes place on Piers 92 & 94 in Manhattan.  Highlights will include: 2012 Commissioned Artist Theastre Gates, art of the Nordic countries in Armory Focus, and a re-design of the space by architect Bade Stageberg Cox.  I am particularly excited to see the Armory Focus exhibition, which will be curated by the director of Malmö Konsthall in Sweden, one of the largest exhibition halls for contemporary art in Europe.  Each year, the region in focus changes.  In the last couple years the Armory Focus has been on Berlin (2010) and Latin America (2011). The Armory Show had over 65,000 visitors last year - so be sure you don't miss out & buy your tickets this week!
