Though the (un)SCENE Art Show opened just blocks away from the Armory Show, in atmosphere and attitude the fairs seemed worlds apart. The dimly lit industrial space stood in stark contrast to the white booths of other fairs taking place this week, creating a surprising and intriguing ambiance. The gritty nature of the space mirrored the sincerity and hands-on approach of the clearly passionate artists on view. The prominence of painting and drawing at the fair emphasized the presence of the artist. Installations incorporating light and movement beckoned visitors to explore the space and lose themselves in the experience. Small, unique and immersive, the (un)SCENE Art Show felt like a monument to the spontaneity and raw intensity involved in the creative process.
