Zürcher’s “Out of Town” Welcomes Armory Week to New York
Once again serving as prelude to Armory Week in New York City, Zürcher Studio, the Lower East Side satellite of the respected Paris Galerie Zürcher, offers Salon Zürcher.
In previous years this micro art fair has showcased galleries in the neighborhood. This year, neighborhood goes national in a show of half a dozen regional dealers in a title that wears provincialism on its sleeve: Out of Town.
Zürcher hosts Andrew Rafacz from Chicago, Anthony Greaney from Boston, Gallery Diet from Miami, Heiner Contemporary from Washington DC, Romer Young from San Francisco and the Philadelphia alternative (weekend) gallery, Vox Populi.
A show at Vox Populi, incidentally, was featured an installment, last fall, of artcritical.com’s Review Panel Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Academy. Among four artists they are bringing to Zürcher is Jay Muhlin in a work that echoes the ethos of the salon in title: “Neighbors,” from his Guilty Pleasures series from 2012.
Out of Town runs Tuesday through Saturday, 18 to 8 pm and Sunday, 12 to 5 pm
