When you enter the Javits Center, you may find yourself in the Crystal Palace Galleria/River Pavilion, overlooking the Hudson River. Here you will find artist  Paula Rego’s Abortion Etchings. Paula Rego (1935-2022) was a celebrated figurative artist. Her home country of Portugal had restrictive laws on abortion.

Paula Rego, The Abortion Series in the Crystal Gallery at The Armory Show 2022

The powerful series was undertaken by the artist, who spoke openly of her own abortions, following her anger at the unnecessary suffering of people undergoing illegal procedures.

The power and pain conveyed in this group of etchings remains relevant today. Paula Rego passed away in June 2022 soon after her retrospective at Tate, London and the inclusion of a major installation as part of the 2022 Venice Biennale.

The ten works on display at The Armory 2022 are loaned with the kind permission of the artist’s family and Cristea Roberts Gallery, London, who is the worldwide representative for original prints by the artist.

Focus, curated by Carla Acevedo-Yates, is dedicated to solo- and dual-artist presentations that examine the intersectionality of issues surrounding the environment within South-South ecologies, focusing on personal and political climates as they interact with race and gender.

At Kó Gallery, Booth F4, we found two artists who hailed from the prestigious Nsukka school in Nigeria ~ Ozioma Onuzulike and Nnenna Okore (on view above and below).

At Kó Gallery, Ozioma Onuzulike and Nnenna Okore

The Nsukka School is best known for the revival of Uli, an Igbo art tradition that was historically used for body art and wall murals, placing this visual language into contemporary art discourses.

Taking a closer look At Kó Gallery, Ozioma Onuzulike

Ozioma Onuzulike currently serves as Professor of Ceramic Art and African Art and Design History, as well as Director of the Institute of African Studies at Nsukka.

The Armory Show 2022, artist Ebony G. Patterson …when the cry takes root…, 2020 presented by Monique Meloche Gallery/Hales

Commissioned for the 2021 Liverpool Biennial, Ebony G. Patterson’s …when the cry takes root…, 2020 resembles a peacock whose expansive tail transforms into a garden landscape. This complex piece is inspired by poet Édouard Glissant’s notion that “landscape is our monument,” referencing the need to recognize and honor how the physical landscapes of the Caribbean and other colonial territories are the result of the traumatic labor of enslaved peoples.

A closer look, and another perspective, of Ebony G. Paterson’s …when the cry takes root… 2020.

Inside the 2022 Platform section, the focus is dedicated to large-scale installations and site-specific works under the theme of Monumental Change, curated by Tobias Ostrander, the Estrellita B. Brodsky Adjunct Curator, Latina American Art at Tate, London.

The section will examine how recent revisionist practices, which are part of dramatic cultural shifts occurring throughout the world, are influencing artists’ engagement with sculptural form.

The Armory Show 2022. Carolina Caycedo, Muyeres en mi, 2019.

One of several installations at Platform is a thoughtful and beautiful textile piece by artist Carolina Caycedo, honoring previous generations of Latin American and Latinx women artists (image above). Entitled Muyeres en mi, it is made using clothes sourced from Caycedo’s immediate family and female colleagues. Across these textiles, the artist has embroidered, in a graffiti and activist-inspired typographic style, the names of artists who continue to inspire her, creating a personal historiography of women and art of the Americas.

The Armory Show 2022, Nyugen E. Smith presented by Sean Horton

Monuments to human ingenuity in the face of political and environment catastrophes, Nyugenn E. Smith’s totem-like sculptures (images above and below), reference shelters built by displaced migrants, refugees, and hurricane survivors.

The Armory Show 2022, Nyugen E. Smith presented by Sean Horton

Nyugen E. Smith’s sculptures are models of bricolage houses constructed using whatever resources can be found at hand ~ what families manage to bring with them, scavenge for near camps, or find left after a natural disaster ~ a sort of Bundlehouse.

The Armory Show 2022, Trenton Doyle Hancock presented by Hales/James Cohan

Above, artist Trenton Doyle Hancock processes his experience as an adult who loves toys, cartoons, horror films, and adventure parks with his installation entitled Mound #1, The Color Crop Experience, 2018 presented by Hales/James Cohan Gallery. This particular Mound is represented as a tent made from black and white striped faux-fur, and covered with pink “scores” that possibly reference traumas that have been tamed through being aestheticized. The fiberglass head that adorns the structure speaks to figurative icons used within fast-food chains or entertainment centers to announce entrances into fantastical worlds.

The Armory Show 2022. Artist Mary Sibande, Ascension of the Purple Figure, 2013 presented by Avi Gupta

Above, Avi Gupta presents artist Mary Sibande, Ascension of the Purple Figure, 2013. With this sculpture, we see ‘Sophie’, Sibrande’s avatar, stepping u onto a pedestal.

The Armory Show 2022, The Kitchen

This year, The Armory Show will partner with The Kitchen as part of a new Armory Spotlight Initiative with a complimentary booth at the fair.

Nicole Berry, Executive Director of The Armory Show, said, “By establishing Armory Spotlight, The Armory Show further fulfills its mission to champion the city’s most important cultural organizations. These organizations have been integral in establishing New York City as an art world leader. We are proud to offer this complimentary space to an esteemed cultural partner who shares the fair’s vision to expand art and culture in the city.”

The Kitchen’s Armory Spotlight will present rarely seen selections from its expansive archive in celebration of the vital contributions of its artists over time.

Legacy Russell, Executive Director & Chief Curator of The Kitchen, said, “The Kitchen is thrilled to partner with The Armory Show. In a moment where experimentalism continues to be redefined and renegotiated, The Kitchen is a platform for artists across practices, perspectives, generations, and localities to push boundaries and to determine for themselves how they want to be represented and remembered through its artist-driven archive as a decolonized and wild site.”

The Armory Show 2022, The Kitchen

On the occasion of The Kitchen’s inaugural presentation for Armory Spotlight, The Kitchen turns its institutional archive outward through a presentation of live performance recordings from 1976 through 1986—originally released in the “From The Kitchen Archives” album series—within an installation of print ephemera.

At the fair, a digital jukebox will feature a selection of tracks that span musical styles and movements, from experimental music under the heading of “New Music” to jazz to No Wave to rock. Listen to the Tracks Here.
