The Armory Show this past weekend was a dizzy array of commercial art. As with any massive expo, the results were overwhelming (i.e. last year’s photography exhibit, AIPAD). Notably there was a nude painted lady nonchalantly perusing the corridors as a swarm of amateur photographers surrounded her. Apparently she’s an artist who was hired by Armory to walk. And most interestingly were the conversations overheard: A gallerist expressing that he/she was most concerned with the canvases going into “good homes” (Apparently art is a lost puppy.), a person on the phone said, “Baby, we should buy it now but you should come down and take a look at it first”, “$150,000 is kind of a lot of money” (“Yeah, Honey, money might be tight this month with two paychecks going towards this canvas. However, it might be worth it. Let’s sleep on it”).
