Fairs and Ballast
A: I'll tell you after the contemporary auctions in April.
For now, however, get yourselves a new pair of sneakers, 'cause the fairs, they are a comin' to New York!
Paddy Johnson has a nice round up of where they are, including a map from Artlog, and there's even more info and another map on Art and Art Fairs. So you can't say you don't know where to go. Seriously...I don't want to hear none of that. Tomorrow (Tuesday) we begin installing our booth at the PULSE New York Art Fair (which has moved People! Don't go to the 26th Street Armory. We won't be there. We're at Pier 40 now). We'll be featuring work by Christopher K. Ho with Troy Richards, Cathy Begien, Thomas Lendvai, Yevgeiny Fiks, and Andy Yoder (whose giant Licorice Shoes were also selected as a Special Project for the fair [see image below]).
I have a sweet spot in my heart for Pier 40, as that was one of the locations I hosted my series of guerrilla-style, three-day shows back in the late 90s (it was called "hit & run" [very original, I know]). There's a free Shuttle Bus from The Armory Show that shoots down the West Side Highway in no time at all. Here's the general info on PULSE NY:
Blogging will most likely be light through the week. Do drop by to say Hi if you're visiting PULSE. And Don't miss the ArtBloggers@ panel discussion on Sunday!
