Calm before the storm....

The New York art world is gearing up for the gallery tsunami known as Armory Week. There are at least 9 fairs happening next week with 2 more major fairs (ADAA and AIPAD) happening in the succeeding weeks through March. Bill Mindlin of Photograph Magazine created a special broadside issue featuring the myriad events coming to New York in the coming weeks. I'm honored that he highlighted Fugitive Vision in this issue as one of two blogs mentioned to be covering the fairs. You can see the special issue online here:

I've been moving Fugitive Vision more towards an essay blog and away from daily small posts about current shows. But, in light of Mr. Mindlin's support, I will try to report daily on what I'm seeing at the fairs. Expect less in-depth commentary (perhaps to be supplemented at a later date for truly memorable work), and a focus on photographic finds. I'll be thinking of myself as an advance scout sending back dispatches for those with less time to scour every booth at every fair. As usual with Fugitive Vision, I will concentrate on the positive. Check in daily for highlighted favorites and recommendations rather than ranting about pet-peeves or disappointing work.

As always, I welcome comments, additions, and corrections. Below please find a list of the fairs with URLs for each so you can begin to explore your options virtually before the madness of the week begins. See you on the other side.....
