The Armory Show is New York’s premier art fair and a definitive cultural destination for discovering and collecting the world’s most important 20th- and 21st-century artworks. Staged on Piers 92 and 94, one of the city’s industrial gems, the fair features presentations by leading international galleries, innovative artist commissions, and dynamic public programs. Since its founding in 1994, The Armory Show has served as a nexus for the international art world, inspiring dialogue, discovery, and patronage in the visual arts.
For the 2017 edition, The Armory Show will unveil a new layout that integrates Piers 92 and 94 into a singular fair for modern and contemporary art, welcoming over 200 exhibitors from 30 countries. The fair will also feature an acclaimed VIP Program, an engaging and lively conversation series titled Armory Live; and a number of citywide events and openings as part of Armory Arts Week.
Special thanks to Artsy.
