The 2017 edition will host over 30 galleries from 30 countries. This year, five distinct exhibitor sections help visitors navigate through almost two centuries worth of art. Joining the four exhibitor sections (“Galleries,” “Insights,” “Presents” and “Focus”) will be the introduction of “Platform.” “Platform” will stage large-scale artworks, installations and site-specific commissions. Eric Shiner will curate An Incident, the first edition of this new section.

Also new to The Armory Show this year is Armory Live, an interactive program including talks, live events and screenings. Features of the program allow listeners to tune in during the event and hear pre-recorded podcasts that will be available at the end of the show. The new addition of Armory Live is a collaboration between The Armory Show and Clocktower Radio.
