The Armory Show is New York’s foremost fair devoted to the most important art of the 20th and 21st centuries. In 2014, the fair will again feature The Armory Show – Modern, a section specializing in modern and secondary market material on Pier 92, while Pier 94 will continue to be a venue to premiere new works by living artists. The opening preview and party for The Armory Show 2014 helps sustain the world-renowned exhibition programming of The Museum of Modern Art.
The Armory Show is pleased to announce that Xu Zhen has been chosen as the commissioned artist for the 2014 edition. Xu Zhen, a “chameleon of concept," has built an extensive body of work that includes video, installation, performance, and photography. From theatrical, merry pranks to quieter works playing on human sensitivity, Xu Zhen has developed a repertoire confronting sociopolitical taboos within the context of contemporary China and beyond.
The fair introduced its annual commission in 2002, and four years later began publishing an annual series of editions by its commissioned artists to benefit The Museum of Modern Art.
