Top 10 Picks: Armory Show 2018

Our editors choose their favorite works at this year's fair, from a Katie Stout lamp at R & Company to Anna Dickinson vessels at Von Bartha.

At this year’s Armory Show, held on Piers 92 and 94 in New York—the first with executive director Nicole Berry, formerly the show’s deputy director, at the helm—we found much to pay attention to. Particularly impressive is the Focus section, curated by Gabriel Ritter, which links 28 galleries with solo or dual-artist presentations, each examining technology’s various impacts on not only our identities but also our bodies. While there are many standouts throughout the Pier 94 booths, including a Nam June Paik presentation at Gagosian, we found works by contemporary artists like Pieter Vermeersch and Alex Hubbard particularly engaging. An extra bonus this year is the arrival of the contemporary design stalwarts R & Company and Carpenters Workshop Gallery, both of which are Armory Show first-timers. The fair opens tomorrow and will be on view through Sunday, March 11. Here, the top 10 works we spotted.
