Art Cologne - a premature call


In 2009 I wrote about the death of the Cologne Art Fair, having served on the selection committee for 2 years prior, but it was a premature call.

I’m not so sure I can say the same about the Armory, though I am sitting in my London garage rather than walking the aisles. Last year, it definitely had the stench of decay about it, but I hope as it dangles between sold and old, it finds new life. The US cannot afford to lose a second coming of the Revolutionary War (this time to Frieze).
