The Armory Show is New York’s premier international art fair, showcasing outstanding 20th and 21st century artworks by established and emerging artists. Founded in 1994 by four New York gallerists, the fair remains a New York cultural institution, presenting leading international galleries, curatorial initiatives and specially-commissioned projects to visitors from around the world. The fair is hosted annually on Piers 92 & 94 in Manhattan, anchoring Armory Arts Week and opening the spring arts season in March. The Armory Show is a nexus for the international art community, introducing visitors to the most compelling voices in the visual arts and fostering dialogue, insights and inspiration.
The Armory Show 2017 will take place March 2-5 and coincide with a number of parallel art fairs, including the affiliate fair, VOLTA NY on Pier 90.
