On-site at PULSE, The Armory Show, and Moving Image

Early March is a big deal in New York, as Manhattan comes alive with what's now being referred to as "Armory Week." Visual Overture Magazine writer Joyce Dade attended three of this year's primary events -- PULSE, Moving Image, and the Armory Show. 

When asked to share the best thing about each event, her responses were:
  • Armory Show - "The ambiance, volume and diversity of magnificent art, sculpture and photography."
  • PULSE - "Excellent lighting for the most part, lovely art work and some very pleasant exhibitors."
  • Moving Image - "I liked the darkened mood inside. The lighting opportunities there made for a nice photo opportunity, capturing images of others watching video had a certain peaceful and tolerant echo that I enjoyed."
While her full article with more praise and serious critique will be available in the Summer 2011 issue of Visual Overture Magazine, here are a few pictures from her time at the events (all photos copyright A. Joyce Dade):
