It's Armory Week and as the Art Elite descend upon NYC for a maelström of VIP after parties and back room dealings I am installing my contribution to Like the Spice's inaugural mini-fair, ARTS|Not Fair.
Offering an alternative to the usual suspects of Armory Week, ARTS|Not Fair dares to question: "What do you do at art fairs? Try to steal a pass, struggle to find the lounge, squeeze into the V.I.P. room and maybe, maybe manage to find a couple pieces of art that don’t make you want to roll your eyes. And then it’s off to the after-party for handshakes and fun and it’s all forgotten until Miami. Doesn’t it leave you wanting something a little more intimate? Something different?"
ARTS|Not Fair opens this Friday, March 9th with a Press Preview from 4-6pm, followed by a VIP Preview event from 6-9pm.
The Opening Reception (open to the public) will be on Saturday, March 10th, from 6-10pm. The opening party will feature special performances and panels in conjunction with Brooklyn Armory Night.
Regular Show hours: Saturday, March 10th, 12-7pm and Sunday, March 11th, 12 – 7pm.
Once the fairs close and leave town, ARTS|Not Fair will be extended through April 1st, 2012.
