Contemporary art collectors and admirers, rejoice! The Armory Show begins today. Running through March 6 on Piers 92 and 94 on Manhattan's west side, this year's fair hosts 274 galleries from 31 countries. At the Paul Kasmin Gallery booth, sculptor Iván Navarro has installed 82 feet of neon-lit fencing, while multimedia artist Sam Van Aken has transformed the Ronald Feldman Gallery stand into an orchard of live trees genetically altered to simultaneously produce peaches, plums, cherries, nectarines and apricots. Hirschl & Adler Modern is showing seven marble sculptures by Elizabeth Turk, the first exhibition of her work since she won a 2010 MacArthur Foundation "genius" grant. Eighteen galleries, both renowned and up-and-coming, from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela will represent Latin America at the second edition of Armory Focus, a curated, invitation-only section of the fair showcasing a particular artistic community (last year's featured Berlin). Don't miss the Casa Triângulo stall, where Brazilian painter Mariana Palma's colorful work will be on display. For its art-loving guests, private club and hotel Soho House is hosting a series of panel discussions and brunches with presenting artists, and offering guided tours of VOLTA NY, an Armory Show satellite exhibit on view on 34th Street. One-day admission to the Armory Show is $30 and a combination pass, including entry to VOLTA NY, is $40; thearmoryshow.com; voltashow.com. Soho House is located 29-35 Ninth Ave.; 212-627-9800; sohohouseny.com.
