This week in New York – The Armory Show.  Some of what is being shown:

Claire Fontaine's "AMERIKA", Courtesy

Claire Fontaine is a Paris-based collective artist, founded in 2004.  She borrowed/appropriated her  her name from an easily recognizable brand of school books.  Self-described as a “readymade artist”, Fontaine explores the concept of the artist, herself, becoming as interchangeable and “readymade” as, say, a Brillo box.

Haim Steinbachs "Juicy salif kong 2", 2008, Courtesy: Dvir Gallery (Tel Aviv)

New York-based artist, Haim Steinbach’s art explores the shelf – or other forms of “displayers” – where ordinary objects suddenly gain the status of art object.
