The Armory Show in New York City is a destination for modern & contemporary art visited by art buyers, gallerists and art enthusiasts from around the globe. Taking place at NYC’s Piers 92 and 94, the show features over 200 influential galleries from 30 countries within five exhibitor sections.
One of the best things about the show is you can spot the work of 20th century masters adjacent to established and up and coming contemporary artists. For the first time, the show presented its ‘Platform’ section of large-scale installations to activate the fair’s industrial space. This year’s edition was titled An Incident and curated by Eric Shiner. Platform installations throughout the fair spotlighted artists such as Yayoi Kusama Ai WeiWei, Jun Kaneko, and Sebastian Errazuriz.
There was an incredible, eye-catching installation titled The Drifter by Studio Drift at the intersection of the piers. A massive concrete box hung while seemingly effortlessly rotating. The work was presented by Pace Gallery who represents Drift as a part of their Art + Technology program.
