Dutch Art Now

The annual Armory Show is upon us, and my favorite show I've seen so far has been Dutch Art Now, a quirky collection of contemporary Dutch pieces at the National Arts Club, which opened in previews on Tuesday evening and runs until March 14. In addition to arresting photos of Dutch female soldiers, light-drenched nudes, and creepy photographic re-dos of the masterly Dutch portraits, there were many pieces featuring food. Here are our favorites:
