In The Galleries: David Armstrong

Tucked behind a discreet apartment building on East 61st Street, The Dark Parade is installed in a hidden 19th-century neoclassical carriage house.

The exhibition by David Armstrong, and presented by Casa de Costa, showcases otherworldly sculptures alongside new photographic works. Armstrong first received critical attention for his intimate portraits of men, both lovers and friends.

Jason Costa, founder of Casa de Costa, calls the location “an opportunity to be up close and see the artist's hand in the work. The carriage house is the ideal place for the installation. It’s intimate and I’m looking forward to seeing how people respond.”

The Dark Parade opens April 11 in New York City but was first exhibited, in part, at CONTEXT|Art Miami in December. Appointments can be booked online at CasadeCosta.com.
