A Walk Through The Art. The 2015 Armory Show

The 2015 Armory Show – now at its 17th edition – selected 199 galleries from 28 different countries. The art fair takes place in New York – this year March 5-8, 2015.

The 2015 Armory Show features Armory Focus: Middle East, North Africa, and the Mediterranean (Focus: MENAM), a section curated by Omar Kholeif (curator at the Whitechapel Gallery in London) that examines contemporary cultural and artistic practices from these regions, by hosting gallery presentations, not-for-profit institutions, and site-specific projects.

Among the Focus: MENAM artists, Lawrence Abu Hamdan has been chosen as The Armory Show’s 2015 Commissioned Artist. Hamdan has developed a new series of works titled A Convention of Tiny Movements (2015), including a specifically designed series of 5,000 potato chip packets, distributed during the fair as a free souvenir.
