Armory Show ‘Modern’ Features Fine Examples of 20th Century Art

NEW YORK—The Armory Show is devoted to both contemporary and modern art. Adjacent to the main show, Pier 92 featured fine examples of 20th century art exhibited by galleries from around the world. This year, Marlborough Gallery‘s booth was front and center as visitors entered the modern show and its finely curated installation of works by Manolo Valdes attracted a lot of attention.
