The Armory Show is New York’s foremost fair devoted to the most important art of the 20th and 21st centuries. In 2013, 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 2013 helps sustain the world-renowned exhibition programming of The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1.

The Armory Show is pleased to announce that Liz Magic Laser has been chosen as the commissioned artist for the 2013 edition. Laser’s practice crosses performance, theater, and installation art, and she has achieved international acclaim through recent exhibitions at the Mälmo Konsthall, the Performa 11 Biennial, The Kitchen, and MoMA PS1, among others. 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 and MoMA PS1.
