    Scope, Beecroft, and After Party Review and Slideshow

    Scope At Scope, the fit was tight, the work sometimes garish, but many gems were evident, especially from smaller regional galleries. Artist collaboratives also were present, and there was a welcome mix of commercial and alternative galleries.

    Volta Review and Slideshow

    Volta After the relative ease of walking the aisles at Pulse, Volta, a sister fair of the Armory, was curated “The Age of Anxiety”, but such thematic unity was superfluous. Nevertheless, at Leslie Tonkonow, Ian Davis’s paintings were a perfect fit, suggesting murky conspiracy theories about cabals of drones with nefarious intentions.

    Pulse Review and Slide Show

    Pulse My first visit of Armory week was the Pulse preview Thursday morning, an ideal time when eager energetic dealers swarmed.

    Venice Biennale: World Tour of the National Pavilions
