Note to Paul Morris: It is not right for galleries to give Tuesday and Wednesday passes to collectors before the fair opens.
Herewith, the ten best of a superb Armory show.
Alix Pearlstein at Artemis Greenberg Van Doren: a freaky nude drops into a crowd in a whimsical hi-def video.
Inka Essenhigh at 303: So wet you can smell it -- a brand new acquamarine meditation featuring flying rolls of toilet paper.
Philippe Bradshaw at Deitch: A shimmering sunset over the Ganges on one of his signature curtains, which far surpasses his previous efforts.
Rosalie Knox at Modern Culture: Beautiful petit C-prints of young women making up -- so reasonable priced that I bought one.
Steven Lowy at Torch: Thin strips of mystical landscapes in Bali, tres relaxing.
Margi Geerlinks at Stux: A mesmerizing photograph of a sexy blonde femme nude, studded with Surrealist lips.
John Newsom at Silverstein: Wasps and honeybees annihilate a Jorge Pardo background -- far superior to his previous work.
Yuki Kimura at Kodama: A stunning installation of photographs mocking the autoerotic subtext of consumer technology.
Sarah Morris at White Cube: Gorgeous LeWittean structures that evoke the fragility of 9/11.
Naoto Kawahara at Taka Ishii: More shameless erotica from the East, enveloped in a Kilimnickian ocean spray.
But it's up to you -- there's so much more. Congratulations all around.
