In 2002, The Armory Show chose their first annual artist commission, Karen Kilimnik
, who based the visual identity of the fair around Grand Central Station
’s escape from demolition. Every year since, an artist has been honored in a similar way; past artist-partners have included Barnaby Furnas
, Lisa Ruyter, John Wesley
, Pipilotti Rist
, Mary Heilmann
, Gabriel Kuri
, and Theaster Gates
—among others—and this year the Armory conspires with the inimitable Liz Magic Laser
As you wait to see what Liz pulls from her hat, take a look at past artists’ work, at right. Barnaby Furnas, 2003; Lisa Ruyter, 2004; John Wesley, Untitled, 2004; Gabriel Kuri, Untitled (Montanas), 2011.
