INDEPENDENT art fair - European Contemporary Art Featured - Armory Arts Week NYC 2014 + Julia Child's Perfect Menu (meal)

The decapitated woodsman, screams in pain.
art fair, 2014
(Armory Arts Week issue #3)

The INDEPENDENT art fair was mostly an exotic stroll through contemporary European Art Galleries, along with all of Europe's sophistication. Much of the art was so edgy, you dare not ask about the meaning or what the artist might be trying to accomplish, so as not to appear bourgeois or too "American" to get it. 

Simply enjoy this inexpensive trip to Europe, the edge of high end art, with the visual delights and aesthetic challenges these artworks, at the INDEPENDENT, presented us this year.

The art crowd at the INDEPENDENT this year.

There were some very good New York Galleries included in the INDEPENDENT art fair also and they were showing artists on the edge, too.

The Independent Art Fair
As usual with this fair, very little of the art was clearly marked and it was unclear where one gallery's artworks stopped and the next gallery's work started. For these reasons many captions have incomplete information, if incorrect, please let us know and a correction will be made.
