A Toast to Armory Arts Week

By Michael Klug

March 11, 2016

Armory Arts Week came and went, but it thankfully didn’t go without leaving behind a whirlwind of highlights. For starters, we had the Vienna Contemporary dinner—where we learned how Vienna is regaining its city center as a cultural and artistic hotspot. Then, we went to ADAA’s The Art Show opening, which was, as always, a landmark fair. It was an amazing opportunity to dwell in the world of modern and contemporary art, with a very well-curated list of galleries. We also stopped by Galerie Perrotin to see the very interesting “Erro” exhibition, and discover—with KAWS and Erik Parker—some unexpected works. Additionally, we saw the new Met Breuer building, where we were mesmerized and truly fascinated by its inaugural exhibition “Unfinished.”

At the opening of The Armory Show, I was overwhelmed by the beautiful lobby light installation by Amsterdam-based Studio Drift, as well as the beautiful Bernar Venet sculpture at Paul Kasmin‘s booth, which announced the upcoming solo show at the gallery’s Chelsea location in April. We ran to Carpenters Workshop to see the exhibition of Maarten Baas. At PULSE, for its “Perspectives” program, we organized a talk with Kenneth Schlenker from ArtList, French journalist and critic Judith Benhamou-Huet, and Maxwell Davidson of Davidson gallery. It was a very passionate discussion moderated by our editor-in-chief, Katy Donoghue, about the challenge of starting and maintaining an art collection.

We also took the opportunity to check out Independent New York at its new Spring Studios location. There, we experienced museum-like quality with the smallest (and best!) curated fair of the week. To celebrate the end of the week, we co-hosted an event at the Hudson Hotel with Ivy Connect and Perrier-Jouet. There, we were able to offer a fun, out-of-work cocktail event that was perfect for networking, and a night of relaxation. On Sunday, we finally closed the week with our friends over at Babel at the Bowery Hotel.

With a kiss goodbye to this year’s Armory week, we are left with a feeling of exhaustion and interest as to what next year will look like. Cheers!
