In Art Guides, The Creators Project brings you the global art trends you need to know about.  

The Armory Show is the massive marketplace around which New York City's Art Week revolves. Tens of thousands of collectors, curators, critics, artists, and enthusiasts fill the warehouses of Piers 92 and 94, searching for the perfect art work to buy, snap a selfie with, or perhaps be moved by.

In the video above, The Creators Project speaks to artists Ed Young and Karo Akpokiere about making art that comments on the nature of The Armory Show. We search through galleries big and small, trying to determine this year's big trends. We chat with exhibitors and guests about the difference between the fair's two sections, modern art and contemporary art. We even find out the answer to the age-old question, "What is art?"
