Keen to distinguish the Armory Show, which is facing competition from almost 300 other contemporary art fairs around the world, the New York art fair’s executive director, Benjamin Genocchio, is playing up the gritty industrial space of Piers 92 and 94 on the Hudson River.

Cecily Brown at Drawing Centre, New York Related Press Cecily Brown at Drawing Centre, New York 6 January 2017, Art in America

The title of Cecily Brown’s exhibition at the Drawing Center, Rehearsal, was intended to reflect the meaning of the Old French version of the term. Rehercier, a wall text instructed, meant 'to go over something again with the aim of more fully understanding it,' rather than, as 'rehearse' currently denotes, to practice for a crowning performance....

'The Female Gaze, Part Two: Women Look at Men' Related Press 'The Female Gaze, Part Two: Women Look at Men' 25 July 2016, Elephant
