The Armory Show New York 2011 - Entry 1

In its thirteenth year the Armory Show Contemporary and the Armory Show Modern combined 270 plus galleries from around the world at its location at Pier 92 and Pier 92 on the Hudson River. The event lasted from February 28 thru March 6 and with some discipline you can see the show comfortably in two days.

“Art Week” New York, which the city will not officially call the event, includes many other venues in the city, which are called the “Armory Circle Events”. Countless VIP parties, private collection tours and other fairs including Critical Design NY, Fountain, Independent, Moving Image, PooL, Pulse, Red Dot, Scope, Verge and Volta. It’s almost impossible to see everything so you need to make some choices. We hit Pier 92 and 94 the first two days which is described as follows from the Armory website:

PIER 94 
MARCH 3 - 6, 2011
The Armory Show is America's leading fine art fair devoted to the most important art of the 20th and 21st centuries. In its eleven years, the fair has become an international institution.

PIER 92
