This is the Armory art week in New York: Armory, SCOPE, Volta, Independent, Spring/Break, PooL, New City, Moving Image, ADAA, and Fountain.

My friend Jorge (thank you, Jorge!) gave us a VIP pass so we attended the inaugural party of the SCOPE contemporary art show.

I enjoyed it for the same reasons I enjoyed Volta last year: international, interesting, refreshing, criticism, political charge, varied… 

There were too many interesting artists and works to mention, but in the photo gallery you have a few examples. I would highlight, among others: the amazing figures of Maria Rubinke (the works on display were not her best, but interesting none the less; and since they sold all the pieces, all I could purchase was the catalogue) that Hans and Bjørn from Hans Alf Gallery brought to NY, Norma from Arcilesi | Homberg Fine Art displayed some interesting paintings, Baang & Burne Contemporary set up Sophia Wallace’s Cliteracy Project (#Cliteracy), Gallerie Swanström – ArtScout and the kinetic sculptures, Fabien Castanier Gallery, Gallery Nine5, Gold Thread, the acrylic sea textured sculptures brought by Sophia Collier Gallery, the interactive “video in a bottle” of Gabriel Barcia-Colombo in Muriel Guépin Gallery booth…
