ONE NIGHT ONLY!
Thursday, March 31

ALIVE: The Story of Uruguayan Flight Number 571
Their plane crashed high in the Andes. Their only shelter was the plane’s shattered fuselage, their only supplies a little wine and some bits of candy. In the beginning, there were thirty-two survivors. Then, only twenty-seven; then, nineteen . . . and, in the end, sixteen.
This is their story---the greatest modern epic of catastrophe and human endurance.
A theatrical adaptation based on the novel Alive: The Story of the Andes Survivors by Piers Paul Read (1974) as well as the 1993 film.
Now bigger and better than ever!

While the 2011Armory Show was less impressive than past years, major galleries absent from exhibiting, there were still a handful of galleries that brought their A-game and made the fair memorable. Setting their booths apart from the rest with extra installation efforts, and/or exciting and fresh work by lesser known artists, the top six booths this year were, in our opinion:
1. CANADA (pictured above and 3 below), 2. Giti Nourbakhsch, 3. Khastoo, 4. Museum 52, 5. Richard Telles, 6. DCKT with an honorable mention to Stuart Shave, Bortolami and Galerie Thomas Shulte.
More favorite pieces from this year's fair:
