Our favorite art monster is back again to wreak havoc on the New York art scene. Now in its 16th year, the Armory Show runs four days and is broken into two sections, modern and contemporary. Featuring a dizzying amount of galleries representing 29 countries, this year’s show features a China Symposium and a special section devoted to contemporary art from China curated by Philip Tinari. The market has also decided to expand and re-brand its Solo Projects section, now referring to it as Armory Presents and allowing participating galleries to present the work of two artists, rather than just one. Be on the look out for conceptual artist Xu Zhen’s Armory Show contributions. The "chameleon of concept” is this year’s Armory Artist Commission. Tours are available if you need guidance navigating this show’s massiveness. We also recommend going over the course of a couple of days if you want to cover everything.
The Armory Show, a leading international contemporary and modern art fair and one of the most important annual art events in New York, takes place every March on Piers 92 & 94 in central Manhattan. The Armory Show is devoted to showcasing the most important artworks of the 20th and 21st centuries. In its fifteen years the fair has become an international institution, combining a selection of the world's leading galleries with an exceptional program of arts events and exhibitions throughout New York during the celebrated Armory Arts Week.
