The [ADAA] fair uptown is now the one that's going to have to find its way again. [The Armory Show is] bright, colorful and noisy, while uptown they've got smaller, quieter pictures and, to be honest, they're looking a little too quiet.” At the time, the Armory was probably getting much more press than the ADAA, so I suppose this inspired the comment, but having attended both, I can tell you, The Armory didn’t hold a candle to the strong fair the ADAA put together. I don’t see why fanfare should solicit observations from professionals involved in the organization that are so superficial in nature.
