“We are thrilled to celebrate this milestone anniversary with so many exemplary galleries returning to the fair, and an exciting and diverse selection of first-time exhibitors that reflect our increasingly international reach,” says Nicole Berry, Executive Director. “The Armory Show’s origins at the Gramercy Park Hotel are a beloved and important part of New York City’s cultural heritage, and the fair has since become a nexus for the international art world. As we continue to evolve—engaging more deeply with curators, special artist projects, and thought-provoking programs—we strive to honor the fair’s legacy and look towards its future as New York’s preeminent art fair.”
