My Highlights from The Armory Show 2015

My Selection:

Barbara Kruger, Culture Vulture, 2012, at Carolina Nitsch Contemporary Art

I have to respect any person who can harness the power of mass communication and make it look this good! 


Camille Henrot, Stealing Part of the Placenta, 2014, at Johann König

I loved Henrot’s show last year at the New Museum. Including the interesting ideas that inform her sculptural practice, her great sense of material and form make her unique objects truly special.


Matthew Chambers, With Such Hunger, 2014, at Zach Feuer

I recommend that you go see Chambers’s work at MoMA’s current exhibition “Forever Now.”  


Helen Frankenthaler, Reunion, 1969, at John Berggruen Gallery

I’ve always been a fan of Frankenthaler’s sense of color. This piece is a nice example of the sparer and brighter paintings she began making in the 1960s.


Mira Schendel, Untitled, 1960s, at Galeria Bergamin

After Schendel fled from her home in Europe at the end of WWII (because of her Jewish heritage), she reinvented her career in Brazil. I admire her for her perseverance and for her work.


John Chamberlain, Tonk #19-83, 1983, at Allan Stone Projects

This tabletop piece comes from a series Chamberlain  did in the ’80s, in which he made sculptures out of Tonka toy cars and trucks. It’s something both I and my kids can enjoy!
