Armory Show -NYC

The Armory Show - International Fair of New Art. Some of the more interesting exhibits play on the notion of "Art Fair." At Postmasters gallery Wolfgang Staehle exhibited a large chromolux still from a Fellini film with the caption," Art is lost in this town..." Deitch Project had a neo-punk cookie stand and was giving away free cookies. I got the brass knuckles. I somehow lost my interview with the director of the "homeless museum." His exhibit was a miniature plywood sort of lemonade stand resembling the advice stand that Lucy has in the Peanuts comic strip. Much of what was on display seemed to be one liners most of it tied in some way to commodity culture either in an embrace or a critique.
