9 Booths Not to Miss at New York’s ADAA
ADAA: The Art Show, the quieter, more intimate fair that runs alongside The Armory Show, opened on Tuesday night at New York’s Park Avenue Armory. In its 29th edition, the fair features 72 galleries from across the United States as well as art spanning some two centuries. This year’s fair is particularly strong in its representation of female artists associated with the 1960s and ’70s—including a gorgeous solo booth dedicated to P.P.O.W. and Pilkington-Olsoff Fine Arts, Inc., and a duo booth given over to the works on paper of pioneering abstractionists
The fair also features bold presentations of new work by big-name European artists David Zwirner. Among strong offerings from artists south of the border, Galerie Lelong is showing Cuban artist Alexander Gray Associates has collaborative works by German-born Uruguayan artist
