As we like to treat most major art fairs, we love just taking a quiet walkthrough all the different booths, halls, and exhibition spaces and just soak it all in. Of course, The Armory Show was the main event in NYC this past weekend, and with strong showings from Kaikai Kiki, V1, and then the entire Nordic Countries fair, here is our walkthrough recap of the entire fair. A lot of the strongest works we saw were installation and sculpture based, which seemed to be a similar feeling we got at Basel this past Decemeber. Then traditional works by the likes of Walton Ford, and the entire David Zwirner booth, were highlights for us.
