Armory Week is back in New York for the 2o13 Edition. Millions will be traded, thousands sold, and probably more will go unsold. Works by artists who are identified as Street Artists are on target for more exposure in these more formalized settings than five years ago thanks to the globalization of the phenomenon, but collectors are thinking carefully when considering a variety of factors including track record, quality of materials, authenticity, originality, street rep, and yes, Internet buzz. Also, do you love it? There are many who would be king or queen, but as usual, you have homework to do.
If you think walking streets in Brooklyn or the Bronx looking for new Street Art and graffiti is hard, you’ll be surprised how much walking this is – and how expensive it can be – to walk through the fairs. So pack a sandwich and some chips and a bottle of water, pace yourself, bring a map, and check out the action. The smaller newer fairs feel more real and the larger ones are about reputation and perceived prestige, but they all have their moments of perfect chaos. Here are a few venues that will be showing at least one Street Artist:
