FINAL SUMMARY OF THE ARMORY SHOW 2013 

214 different galleries from Sao Paulo to Dubai converged on New York City for this year's huge contemporary art "FAIR" known as The Armory Show. This Group Exhibition was as important as ever for 2013. There was less photography shown, less neon (thank goodness), less sculpture overall and there were very few new trends to be found. The art, for the most part, was very recent with little exposure for most of the artworks before this show. 

With all of the great art exhibited in New York City in any one year, The Armory Show remains the most important five days of New York's art calendar.   

Here is our final selection of art from The Armory Show, 2013 - we didn't want you to miss these contemporary artworks shown at Pier 94.
