New York's Pier 94 drew massive crowds for the 10th Armory Show, one of the worlds largest contemporary art fairs. While recession fears may have attributed to a more conservative choice of artists featured, many European visitors enjoyed the weak US dollar ensuring massive crowds every day. One noticeable trend was a move towards more sculpture/mixed media pieces and less paintings. Pictured above is John Water's 'Study Art Sign (For Style or Glory)', one of a series in six commissioned for the Armory Show. More details after the jump.
