NEW YORK—The Armory Show features compelling contemporary work in a range of mediums from around the world. Neon is everywhere, intriguing sculptures, large- and small-scale paintings, as well as digital and light box installations. At Galerie Michael Janssen of Berlin, life-sized glass heads are filled with found objects and Theaster Gates, a Chicago performance artist and urban planner who takes a proactive approach to improving poor neighborhoods, is displaying two chalk board works that show his creative thought process at Kavi Gupta gallery.
The show concludes today and ran from March 8 to March 11. More on Armory Show 2012.
