There wasn’t a ton of buzz around the Armory Show’s VIP program which has traditionally been one of the biggest draws of the fair. But Bloomberg did take a little time over the weekend to show up at the New York loft of Washington lobbyists Tony and Heather Podesta who were showing Olafur Eliasson in depth:
The Podestas like Eliasson so much that he is the only artist on their New York walls: Obsessive series of nature photographs hang in the front hallway, the corridors and above the beds in both the master suite and guest room. The dining room features an oil-on-canvas color wheel; the living room, a light sculpture.
“We decided that unlike our home in D.C., we would always install one artist in depth,” said Tony Podesta, chairman and founder of the Podesta Group. “Olafur is our first. His work plays with ideas and materials and color and light, always in challenging ways.”
