Art Fairs | NYC, Armory Week: Moving Images in Chelsea

Several Armory related fairs take place in the capital of (mainly) commercial art: Chelsea. Interestingly enough the art fair located in Chelsea are not the most "commercial".

Moving Image is located in the the Waterfront Tunnel event space between 27th and 28th Streets with an entrance on 11th Avenue in Chelsea. The location is another glorious space filled of memories from my clubbing days ---it hosted the famous homonym club The Tunnel.
Moving Image presented a selection from international commercial galleries and non-profit institutions. Although mainly comprising single-channel videos the fair also included large video installations.

Another "moving image" presentation happened at the SVA theather, on 333 West 23rd Street, in the movie theater once known as Clearview Chelsea West Cinema.
Artprojx Cinema, a collaborative venture with The Armory Show and VOLTA NY, presents a screening program of over 80 artists’ films and videos from over 40 galleries. Artprojx is curated by David Gryn.
