Live in the Limo with Art Currents

A photo report from the “movable white salon” outside The Armory Show 2009.

The Art Currents “Live in the Limo” project was a definite highlight of the past art fair weekend. Taking a break from the Armory, I spent thirty minutes meandering through Midtown with a friendly group of editors, writers, and curators, drinking champagne, and listening to sound artist Sawako mix field recordings on a laptop. After we all had a chance to get comfortable, curator Peter Frank offered a reading from his poetic works.

Instructions read: Look for the white limo in the sea of black.

Settling in for the ride.

Sawako was mixing somewhere behind those balloons.

Thanks to the combination of sound, motion, and alcohol, when the limo dropped us off at Pier 92 I slowly emerged as if waking from a daydream.
