Armory Center for the Arts

July 13 through December 14, 2014

In looking at this show, viewers are supposed to feel entirely aware of the fact that they're engaging with art. So when you're inside of Alice Konitz's miniature museum that's now installed in the Armory's galleries, you're ideally thinking Brechtian thoughts about what is "shown in the showing."
