God bless the specialists. As largely indistinguishable contemporary art fairs proliferate around the world, showing pretty much the same wares from an ever growing pool of contemporary art dealers, specialty art fairs and their exhibitors have continued going about their business, offering something for connoisseurs and novices alike. One of New York’s finest, the AIPAD Photography Show, now in its 33rd year, is now on view at the Park Avenue Armory through Sunday. It offers a great deal to enjoy. Read More

New exhibitor Glass Past

Wandering through the annual Winter Antiques Show at the Park Avenue Armory is about as close to time travel as one can get. The elaborate booths often resemble the rooms of a cross-sectioned dollhouse, complete with wallpaper and flooring to better complement the art, furniture and artifacts on view. The show, which will run through Feb. 3, features 73 dealers, including eight new ones that are participating in the fair for the first time this edition. Of the new additions, three are presenting pieces from the more recent past that enliven the exposition by broadening its range. Read More

An Insider’s Outsider: Vahakn Arslanian at the Outsider Art Fair


One of the pleasant surprises of the Outsider Art Fair, which runs Jan. 31 through Feb. 3 at the Center 548 building in Chelsea, is the inclusion of the young art dealer Vito Schnabel, son of Julian, best known for organizing roving shows with artists like the Bruce High Quality Foundation, Terence Koh and Laurie Anderson. The fair was purchased last fall by art dealer Andrew Edlin, who told Gallerist at the time that he was trying to make it “more a part of the art world conversation.” Mr. Schnabel will stay mostly true to the fair’s folk art roots, though with a more contemporary twist, showing work by the artist Vahakn Arslanian.

Actors Emile Hirsch and Anton Yelchin on opening night

“I’m kind of obsessed with it.”

Actor Emile Hirsch wasn’t talking about Sundance—he’d already been there, done that by last Thursday night when, along with throngs of other well-heeled Angelenos, he arrived at Santa Monica’s Barker Hanger for the art fair Art L.A. Contemporary (ALAC). He was talking about ALAC, and his attitude reflected that of a lot of attendees. The event seems to have caught on. Read More
