RADIO // Armory ShowArmory Show 2005: Artists Buying Art with Peter Coffin (Part 2)
On this second day of his scheme, Artist Peter Coffin gave another team of artists $100,000 of genuine bright yellow WPS1 "munny" and sent them out to deal with the dealers. Some were drawn to the weirdest stuff while others really wound up thinking, and thinking, and thinking... A new experience for the collection-challenged, the quest allowed each young artist a glimpse of the "other side" of an otherwise alienating experience. In addition to commenting on what art was good or worth buying, discussions about the Armory Show experience generated some pointed criticism, healthy mockery of the art market and dialogue about current trends in art. The Day Two panel participants were host Peter Coffin with Alex Singh, Lisa Kirk, Anne Collier, Adam Helms and Scott Hug (who was lost on the Armory floor somewhere or being held by Security, we never found out for sure).
