Aaron Young: Greeting Card

With the Art Production Fund, Park Avenue Armory presented its first contemporary art exhibit. Artist Aaron Young’s Greeting Card was described by New York Times writer Roberta Smith as “stunning”-a showcase of the Armory as a unique art venue. Seven hundred audience members stood on the balconies above as motorcycles throttled and spun below creating columns of thick smoke and causing a sense of “Coliseum” spectacle that was simultaneously thrilling and disturbing. The work was open to the public for one week after the performance free of charge.
