Bright Colors, Happy Feet at Independent New York 2016
Independent New York has long been heralded as a savvy alternative to the Armory Show, with a shorter list of gallerists who approach their booths like miniature exhibitions, rather than carnival stalls. Now in its seventh year, Independent moved its home to Spring Studios for this go-round, filling the first, fifth and sixth floors with art from around 40 galleries representing nine countries. Highlights include a photo installation by Nate Lowman at Maccarone; a video game room by Corazon del Sol from The Box; and a presentation of works by Peter Saul spanning 1961 to 1984 at VENUS. Photographer Felix Kim took in scenes from the fair, open now through Sunday.
