“The Armory Show closed out its centennial edition this weekend at Pier 92 and 94 in NYC. It opened on March 7 and ran through March 10, leaving art writers, curators, and collectors scrambling to the west side. From Solange’s blow out performance at the Armory Party (with Jay-Z and Beyonce), to the weekend street style from the Pier, we’ve rounded up the best Instagram shots from Armory Week. In case you missed it, here’s a run through of the highlights from the week.

Art 101: Architectural Humanity
Jay Ezra, an anthropology expert and architecture fanatic, loves to explore space, place, and connectivity. His photography and philosophies resemble the work of Guy Tillim, South African photojournalist turned artist. Both are concerned about the humanity of architecture and how it is inner connected to who those built, occupied, and were a part of it . As Ezra believes there is a “manifestation of ourselves” in buildings. Tillim also tries to capture this sensibility through his photographs. The Grande Hotel, Beira, Mozambique has a long political history that can be felt through the composition of the photograph and the sense of tension between the decrepit dilapidation of the columns and the upward movement of the light. Both literally and figuratively this photograph comments on the human state. Brasillia captures Oscar Neimeyer’s modernist design to reflect a simple, optimistic state of mind. Similar in composition, these pieces visually compliment each other.
Tap in with the newest Tappan artist, Brandy Eve Allen. She is defying time and boundaries with her intricately detailed work. Allen shoots with film and prints her work in her own dark room. She mounts her work on heavy weight matte paper to be drawn on, painted over, and consumed by their new environment. It would be a constant source of inspiration to own one.
