A standout presentation at The Armory Show can launch an artist’s career to new heights. Who should you watch this year?
From JR to Amalia Pica, these 15 talents will be presenting monumental installations and performances in the fair’s Platform section, curated by Jen Mergel. If you fall in love with these large-scale works at the fair, you can take home their smaller works with Artsy.
From a series of found object sculptures that represent the human body to a durational confetti-throwing performance at The Armory Show, Pica creates a diverse set of conceptual artworks, all driven by the desire to be understood.
In one of his most celebrated works, Wilson covered himself in stamps and went to a post-office asking to be placed in the mail—a performative homage to Henry Brown, the 19th century slave who escaped to freedom by shipping himself in a box.
