"To the Armory!"


2006-03-01

March 9-13th, Williamsburg’s ruckus art activists storm the barricades at this year’s “Armory Show.” Long time stalwarts Pierogi and Roebling Hall featuring David Opdyke’s politically charged models, photos from Eve Sussman and “Back Stage” by Avan Navarro, will blitz the main venue at Piers 90&92. Across the street at 660 Twelfth Avenue, upstart provocateurs Front Room, Capla Kesting, and McCaig-Welles are mounting a frontal assault with their own “Salon de Refuse.” Titled “Fountain” (in homage to Duchamp’s Dadaist gesture), they’ll be highlighting numerous neighborhood artistic freelancers. Meanwhile, flanking actions will be undertaken at “Scope” 636 Eleventh Avenue, between 46th and 47th Streets, by: 31 Grand presenting Carol Riot Kane’s Goth inspired painting and sculpture, Black and White with Berlin artist Ina Eissler’s architectural paintings and photomontages, Dam Stuhaltrager displaying critically acclaimed “Sketches of a Field of Grass” by Ryan Wolfe, and the perennial bad boys from Jack the Pelican who will, as usual, be assaulting our sensibilities. Across town at “Pulse,” at the home of the original Armory Show, at 26th and Lexington, Parker’s Box hosts a video program featuring five different artists who will simultaneously be showing at the Williamsburg Location. And Boreas will be showing video at Diva, Embassy Suites,102 North End Ave.
