This is what it’s like to attend the Armory Show, an art bazaar on an industrial scale. Shown here: Irreversible depth of progress by Jin Meyerson at Emmanuel Perrotin. (All photos by C-M.)
Yesterday I donned my blackest finery and my smartest European eyewear and joined the Hans and Franzes for Armory-palooza 2008. As always, there was plenty of air kissing, champagne, high-heeled boots and, of course, the pervasive smell of money.

The obligatory John Waters piece: Study Art (For Fun or Fame), 2007, at Mary Heilmann. I read in New York Magazine this week that Waters recently smoked crack by accident. This happened to a friend of mine once, who told me that after realizing what he’d done, he went home and cleaned his apartment. All night long.
