NEW YORK—From masks by Los Angeles-based Betye Saar to beautiful paintings by Boston-based Melora Kuhn, at this year’s Armory Show, some of the most interesting offerings are smaller works. Among the particularly innovative are elegantly executed, symbolic works by Latin American artists such as Puerto Rican-born Ramon Miranda Beltran and Regina Silveira of Brazil. A bounty of such works is on exhibit at the booth for Luciana Brito Galeria, which is based in Sao Paulo and is featuring Leandro Erlich and Silveira, among others.
The Armory Show is on view from March 7 to March 10, 2013 at Piers 92 (the Modern Show) and 94 (the main Contemporary Show).
