ArtNews spotlights David Shrobe at The Armory

By Maximilíano Durón and Katherine McMahon

 

This year’s edition of the Armory Show opened to members of the press and VIPs on Wednesday, March 6. The fair, which has brought 198 exhibitors from 33 countries to New York, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. After a slight hiccup two weeks before the fair, with most of Pier 92 being declared unsafe for use at the event, the Armory Show opened with the usual fanfare and sales on Piers 90 and 94. Below, a look at some of the work on offer, including Mark Dion at his lemonade stand, an unmissable Sadie Barnette installation at Charlie James Gallery, and a choice 1979 painting by Miriam Schapiro.
