Hank Willis Thomas at Ben Brown Fine Arts, and Teresita Fernández at Lehmann Maupin, alongside those up- and-comers we need to know, including Barthélémy Toguo at Galerie Lelong & Co. and Jean Shin at Praise Shadows Art Gallery. It's de rigueur to check out global gallery brands, especially Kaikai Kiki Gallery (Tokyo), founded by owner/superstar talent Takashi Murakami, with its cool emphasis on the Superflat movement, always a crowd-pleaser. Also investigate Almine Rech (NY, Paris, Brussels, London, Shanghai), showcasing 2020 Pierre Cardin de l'Académie des Beaux-Arts de Paris prize-winning painter Alexandre Lenoir in a solo collection of canvases informed by color washes, stenciling, and a loose improvisation of reality. Indie dealers such as Philadelphia-based Locks Gallery also shine; Guerrilla Girls will applaud their booth focused upon contemporary power painters, all women: Jane Irish, Pat Steir, Joanna Pousette- Dart. Meanwhile, at Pace Prints, snap up editioned works on paper by James Turrell or Leonardo Drew. One of Texas' most acclaimed galleries returns, Sicardi Ayers Bacino of Houston, with its window upon the most important modern and contemporary talents in Latin American art, including 2022 Armory Pommery Prize winner Reynier Leyva Novo, a Cuban émigré known for political-social justice creations. Others with Texas connections: Richard Patterson, a YBA painter now in Dallas, at top London dealer Timothy Taylor Gallery; and Mary Ellen Carroll at Galerie Hubert Winter (Vienna). Finally, make time to visit No Gallery (New York), who scored a complimentary booth as recipient of this year's Gramercy International Art Prize. Don't miss the live drawing session Housecalls, conducted by NYC artist Drake Carr and presented by Artists Space, part of the Armory's longstanding Cultural Partners Program. The Armory Show, Friday – Sunday, September 8 – 10; VIP Preview, Thursday, September 7; at Javits Center, New York; 2/3 Page 5.583" x 10.8125" TEXAS FAMILY-OWNED AND MANAGED • INDEPENDENT LIVING • ASSISTED LIVING • MEMORY CARE www.THETRADITION.COM THE TRADITION–WOODWAY 6336 Woodway Drive, Houston, TX 77057 Independent Living (713) 423-6066 Assisted Living & Memory Care (713) 874-9096 THE TRADITION–BUFFALO SPEEDWAY 9339 Buffalo Speedway, Houston, TX 77025 Independent Living (713) 715-1905 Assisted Living & Memory Care (713) 715-1902 Our residents are one of the best reasons to join us at The Tradition. Here is what one of our residents has to say about what contributes to her enjoyment: "I love so many things at The Tradition that I am not sure if I could just pick one. There's companionship if you want it; there's a book club if you want it; there's art if you want it; there's always food if you want it; and there's always a cocktail if you want it. It's like living in a hotel, so it's kind of a vacation just to live here. Why wouldn't I tell someone? I am thrilled to be here. And I would tell them to please come; it's just a fabulous place, and you'll meet wonderful people." I hope that you consider a new way of living and join us at The Tradition. Please make an appointment to tour our beautiful Community, meet residents firsthand and learn more. I look forward to welcoming you home!
