A Last Look at The Armory Show 2015

By Eliza Jordan

March 8, 2015

Today is the last day of the Armory Show, located at Pier 92 & 94, and there was just enough time to see many more intriguing pieces.

A lighting installation by Jim Campbell, was made up of (more than enough to count) what appeared to be circular, fogged glass beads. It was hung off-center, wired with intricate and technical lighting, and lit up in waves as you moved closer to it. Jessica Stockholder displayed Celestial Season, a contraption made up of plastic baskets, wire ties, chains, lights, driveway mirrors, and paint, hung nearly an entire story up above. Eye-catching pop-art vibes were seen in Arrow Painting—an oil on aluminum panel piece by Tony Tasset, that boasted bold color blocking, with both deep solids and soothing pastels. Bronze Crocs (literally), resting atop a slab of wood, nonetheless, was brought forth by Mickalene Thomas.

Dream and Nostalgia by Awol Erizku certainly brought both, as a standard NBA basketball hoop full of silk flower arrangements (by floral designer Sarah Lineberger Unique) hung high above an accompanying floral painting. Thick, illuminating globs of acrylic on canvas eased cool shades of color ranging from sea-blue to London topaz blue, and from electric purple to royal purple, in Nabil Nahas’ piece. It donned a psychedelic background of midnight black, with delicate streaks of emerald green and amber orange peeping through.

There was also seating in the form of bushels of carnations (a feminine version of haystacks), seen tidily bound together with a thin green twine. Seats made to look like grazing sheep by François-Xavier Lalanne, were fluffy and comfortable, and invited many show-goers to take a load off.
