Epic 2010 Armory Show photo recap

Last week fellow SUNfiltered blogger Perrin Drumm did a nice write up on The Armory Show, “one of the most important fine art fairs in the world” which ended this past Sunday. I went with a friend over the weekend and while roaming through the various galleries booths and enjoying my (nine dollar!) Coors Light, I took photos of the pieces that caught our eyes. A lot of today’s contemporary art simultaneously frustrates and stimulates me, because some seem so heavy handed and derivative, especially trompe l’oeil sculptures and Jenny Holzer-esque pieces, and yet it is these that I’m most drawn towards and excited by. This annual art fair is where these contradicting emotions most manifest (See last year’s photo recap here – Part 1 and 2).

View (Warning: A LOT) more photos after the jump (I’d like to caveat that pictures don’t do justice for most of the art there).
