Japan’s Mizuma gallery made quite a splash at this year’s Armory, selling out most of the art they imported from the land of the rising sun. As usual, their booth was filled with some of Japan’s notables: Akino Kondoh, Sashie Masakatsu, Makoto Aida, Aoyama Satoru, andÂ Tanada Koji to name a few. We were hoping to catch more of Sashie’s work, but like in Pulse Miami (covered), he sold out quickly.Â Another piece weÂ saw was a beautifulÂ pieceÂ by Ai Yamaguchi. The centerpiece of the gallery was a magnificent […]

During Armory Week, there were a few things that caught our attention. One of the highlights of the Bridge Art Fair was British gallery Opus Art who traveled from the UK to show New York just what they have to offer. Opus brings aÂ hip mix of Contemporary and Urban artists that included: Chris Kettle, Peter Blake, SHEONE, Justine Smith, Lex Thomas, Dave White, Hush, Bai Tao and Johan Andersson. AM spent some time gazing atÂ the diverse range of great works showcased at their booth.Â We got […]
The thing aboutÂ “Art Show” week (Armory, Art Basel, Art LA) is not only exposure to all the great art you can handle, but you also realize how small the art community is. Seeing big-named artists walking down the aisle and celebrities moving from booth to booth is not an uncommon occurrence. At the Armory Art Fair, we ran into Marsea Goldberg of LA’s New Image Art. Marsea told AMÂ that she was in town not only to check out Armory Week, but also to “catch up” […]
The ARMORY Art Show as it’s name implies, was literally a stockpile of the art world’s heavy artillery. With works from Damien Hirst, Yoshitomo Nara, Kara Walker, Kenny Scharf, Kehinde Wiley, Gilbert & George, Julian Opie, Marilyn Minters, Tom Sachs and many more, the stockade of high caliber art stretched the imagination. Much like Art Basel in Miami, we struggled to keep up with the long aisles filled with notable galleries such as White Cube, Emmanuel Perrotin, Honor Fraser, and Mizuma that all brought their […]

As we previously did with SCOPE, here is a quick run through of the satellite Pulse Fair put on during Armory Week in NY. On display were many artists that we love including this large showstopper from Martin Wittfooth (above). More pics after the jump.
