The Armory Show 2022 will bring contemporary and modern art galleries from over 30 countries to New York City this Sept. 9-11, with a VIP preview on Sept. 8. The fair, founded in 1994, still plays a crucial role in establishing NYC as major cultural capital and art epicenter. The event will be filled with public art, engaging programming, and carefully curated presentations at the Javits Center, off-site locations and other adjacent events during Armory Art Week.
Galleries present at the Javits Center will include 303 Gallery, ACA Galleries, Galeria De Arte Mexico Gam, Bank, The Breeder, Anat Ebgi, Galeria Estação, The Hole, K Art, Ludorff, Loock Gallerie, Francesca Minini, and more.
“Focusing on the quality of galleries at the Armory has always been an important part of my vision for the fair. It’s been great to reengage with the major galleries who had not participated in quite some time and to interest younger galleries in emerging markets. For us, this brings a sense of discovery to the fair, and ensures that there’s something for the most seasoned collector as well as those just starting out. ” – Executive Director, Nicole Berry, discussed her plans for the Armory show in an interview with ARTnews.
The Javits center location will present a variety of sections with different themes and artists. The fair will include a solo section focusing on intimate presentations by contemporary artists including James Fuentes, Rodolphe Janssen, Lawrie Shabibi, Vintage Galeriá and more. In addition, their Focus section titled Landscape Undone and curated by Carla Acevedo-Yates will feature work from artists examining the intersectionality within the environment; looking at personal and political climates as they interact with race, gender, and power. The Presents section will bring emerging galleries, around for less than 10 years, to the forefront showcasing recent work in solo-and-dual artist presentations.
“While much has changed over the years, our ingenuity and ambition have not. The Armory Show is a galvanizing force in the art world and essential to New York’s cultural landscape.” – The Armory Show.
Larger scale installations will also have their place at Armory; curated by Tobias Ostrander, Platform will focus on site-specific works with the theme of Monumental Change. This section will look at recent revisionist practices, and their role in cultural shifts occurring throughout the world, which ultimately influence artists’ engagement with sculptural form.
This year, the Armory Show will partner with The Kitchen as part of a new Armory Spotlight Initiative with a complimentary booth at the fair. The Kitchen’s Armory Spotlight will present rarely seen selections from its expansive archive in celebration of the vital contributions of its artists over time.
