Art Expo

Last week was art expo week in NYC. There were 10+ art fairs held in various venues around the city. My husband and I choose to visit 2 shows, one was held in the beautiful post office building on 34 street and 8th ave. The show was called Spring Break Art Fair. This show was a curator show meaning that a few dozen curators got rooms or gallery space in the building and they selected artist and art works that they wanted to exhibit in their space.

Some of the highlights of the show :
1-Slices of bread mounted on a  wall was strange funny and interesting

2- An installation of moving tread mills where the belts where painted, it reminded me of a printing press
3-My favorite was a group of 3 collages made out of socks by Aaron Johnson

 The second  fair we went to was called the (UN)SCENE ART FAIR. It was held in a big hall on the ground floor of a building on 52 street between 10-11 ave .This show was way more polished but I enjoyed both shows  .
Here are a few highlights from the show .
