The Armory Show VIP opening with the MOMA benefit gala was a buttoned-down affair with a few bouts of electricity and tasty hors d oeuvres. I enjoyed the complementary shuttle service from venue to venue but the pier shows were “conventional” by NYC standards. I don’t have an answer for it. Having been to and in my share of art fairs I gravitate to the ones that book live performance artists doing their art while art guests shudder and scrabble away or get invested and go with it. I realize their are many peripheral activities and events to go with the fair, commendable. This is my impressions on the opening night specifically. No edge, no trouble.
