Armory Show 2018: Highlights

Art fairs used to feature mainly traditional paintings and prints. Nowadays, fairs include other forms of art such as photography (often digitally manipulated), video art, and large installation pieces.

 

Our visit to The Armory Show this year offered a glimpse into the multifarious and truly varied nature of the art world today. In navigating the vast maze of exhibitors’ booths, viewers were bombarded with artwork of different media, many of which were technological in nature. No longer do fairs consist predominantly of traditional paintings and prints, but include photography that is often digitally manipulated, video art and large installation pieces.
