Tomorrow marks the launch of Disarmory, a three-day art exhibition and series of events organized by A Gallery. Working in the legacy of the original 1913 Armory fair that brought a dense exhibition of work by prominent and emerging continental avant-gardists to New York audiences for the first time, Disarmory will present the work of ten contemporary artists "disarmed". While the original Armory fair distressed audiences with vanguard art objects indifferent to the popular taste and aesthetic sensibilities of turn-of-the-century American, the current Armory affirms at once its own strength and any such vanguardism by offering the transforming potential of commodification to even the most difficult of work. Disarmory is "a reminder that however myth might occlude history, the will to transform cultural perspective is irreducible and subject to displacement only insofar as we betray the importance of purpose to the importance of its legacy."
