All art was not created equal — or equally priced. That's especially true during The Armory Show, a contemporary and modern art fair that's one of the most significant annual art events in the city. Jet-setters with a yen for hot new creators are happy to pay top dollar for masterpieces-to-be, but just because you don't have a Black Amex, it doesn't mean you can't get in on the spending spree.
As part of Brooklyn Armory weekend, curator Grayson Cox has put together a group show, Personal Desire Propaganda, that's leveling the art-buying playing field. Indeed, the exhibit will feature the work of 27 different artists, each with 100-edition-print posters for sale at the very reasonable price of just $10. Yes, $10. Opening with a reception this Thursday evening, the gallery space might become more sample sale than art space — either way, though, the pieces will still look like they cost you the big bucks.
Personal Desire Propaganda Group Show, 111 Front Street Galleries, 111 Front Street, (at Adams Street), Suite 208; Brooklyn, no phone.
When: Opening reception Thursday, March 7, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m; Show open through March 30.
