From a $240,000 Plastic-Bag Bliss-Out to a $3,500 Surrealist Delight, Here Are 6 of the Best Artworks at the 2019 Armory Show

Jim Campbell

Campbell, an MIT engineer who decided to commit himself to art, is known in certain circles in New York—a piece of his is in the current Whitney show “Programmed: Rules, Codes, and Choreographies in Art, 1965–2018,” for instance—but he’s much, much better known in San Francisco, where his permanent 130-foot LED installation on Salesforce Tower is said to be the “most visible public artwork in the West.”
