Tour the Armory Show at Pier 92! Saturday, March 4, 2017 12:00 to 1:30 P.M. Meet at Pier 92, Art Tour Desk Twelfth Avenue at 55th Street� New York City Mary-Kay Lombino The Emily Hargroves Fisher ’57 and Richard B. Fisher Curator and Assistant Director for Strategic Planning of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center and Evie Joselow, PhD, Vassar College, class of 1983 Art Historian and Fine Art Appraiser Invite You to a Special Members Only Event! Enjoy a private highlights tour of the Armory Show—Modern hosted by Evie Joselow and Mary-Kay Lombino. Dr. Joselow is a distinguished art historian, writer, and professor, and has spent her entire career working in various capacities in the art world. She is the owner of The Art of the Appraisal—an independent firm based in New York City—and has been involved with The Armory Show for many years. This year, we are pleased to announce that Jarrett Gregory, Vassar College, class of 2005, curator of the Armory Show’s 2017 Focus section will join us. Gregory has graciously agreed to address our group with comments on her curatorial vision for Focus. The Focus section encompasses twelve solo presentations of new or rarely seen work by some of today’s most relevant and compelling artists. “Each artist demonstrates an acute awareness of his or her local conditions as well as the failing structures, conflicts and ideologies that define our era,” says Gregory. “This project emerged from conversations with artists during trips to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Moscow, where I witnessed, among other things, the aftermath of widespread social and economic failure. Following this research, power structures have been at the forefront of my mind.” Highlights include new works by American-born Pakistani artist Amna Asghar whose work reflects on the exchange of imagery between East and West; Deana Lawson’s striking photographs, which investigate the body’s ability to channel personal and social histories; a video and installation by Mathilde Rosier; collaborative experiments by Koki Tanaka, who represented Japan in the 55th Venice Biennale; and a new project by Moscow-based artist Anna Titova. The Armory Show, housed in Piers 92 and 94 along the Hudson River on Manhattan’s west side, is the largest art fair in New York and one of the principal annual art events in the international art market calendar. Visited by tens of thousands of people each March, the Armory has for almost two decades been the showpiece for some of the world’s most important modern and contemporary art galleries. Included in this event are early admission and all-day passes to the fair as well as tickets for the sister fair VOLTA which takes place on Pier 90.
