Art Fair Report: Armory Show 2018


How was The Armory Show 2018? What Beth deWoody told Forbes Magazine about her visit of the fair can be seen as emblematic for this year's edition:


"I've seen tons of things I like. The show is really great. There is more room, you can really see the art more easily.  There are really good galleries, and high quality art. It's fun."
