The 11th edition of the Armory Show presents 243 international galleries. Many galleries are devoting their stands to single artist presentations. Ronald Feldman Fine Arts for instance is presenting The Volksboutique Armory Apothecary by Christine Hill, where visitors will have the opportunity to describe their maladies to the artist, who will prescribe remedies for a small fee.
The Armory Show introduced a new section called Special Projects that feature a selection of large-scale works and site specific installations. The projects include Kenny Scharf’s Carzy Roy-Al, a customized, smiling golf-cart that serves as shuttle between Pier 92 and 94, Richard Dupont’s 180 cast polyurethane figures in the VIP Lounge, an installation by El Anatsui attached to the VIP Lounge’s exterior, and Doug + Mike Starn’s dynamic Amaterasu.
