VIP Preview: September 5

The Armory Show, a mainstay of New York’s artistic landscape for three decades years, has announced details for its 30th Anniversary edition, which will be taking place at the Javits Center from September 6-8, with a VIP Preview Day on September 5. This year’s show will feature over 235 galleries representing more than 30 countries. It also marks the first show since Frieze acquired The Armory Show last July. 

This year, The Armory Show redesigned the floor plan to allow for the over 200 galleries being showcased. 

“The upcoming edition inaugurates a floorplan that enhances the visitor experience with reimagined meeting spaces, reoriented sections, a new theater hosting conversations with art world luminaries, and engaging partnership activations,” Christine Messino, Director of Americas at Frieze, said.

Kristell Chadé, Executive Director of Fairs at Frieze, noted the fair’s importance in championing art and providing galleries a chance to interact with New York audiences. 

“It has been a pleasure working with the team to build on the strengths of the fair and expand its reach,” Chadé said. “We look forward to welcoming a number of new exhibitors and thoughtful presentations, underscoring The Armory Show’s position as a platform for discovery.”

More than 145 previous exhibitors are returning to The Armory Show, including 303 Gallery (New York), Galeria Raquel Arnaud (San Paolo), Victoria Miro (London, Venice) and Jessica Silverman (San Francisco). More than 55 first-timers will be participating in the show, including GALLERY BATON (Seoul), Mingoni (New York), Experimenter (Kolkata, Mumbai) and Corbett vs. Dempsey (Chicago). 

Once again, the show will showcase its fair sections. Galleries, the core section of the art fair, will present leading international galleries that feature 20th and 21st-century artworks across many media. Solo will feature single-artist presentations of emerging, established and historic artists. Presents will show galleries under 10 years old, through solo- and dual-artist presentations. Platform features large-scale installations and site-specific works staged at the center of the fair that examine the interplay of memory, material and spirit; this section is curated by Eugenie Tsai, independent curator and former curator of contemporary art at the Brooklyn Museum. Finally, the Not-For-Profit section will highlight presentations from museums, not-for-profit art galleries and art foundations.

The Armory Show will also present The Gramercy International Prize to Blade Study (New York) for the gallery’s support of a new generation of artists with an audience for conceptually rigorous work. This award grants a booth to a New York-based gallery that encapsulates the vision in which the fair was founded in 1994. 

The Armory Spotlight Award will be presented to Creative Time for its presentation of ambitious public art projects around the world. This award honors a New York cultural institution with a booth at the fair to support its feasibility and sustainability. 

American Express is the lead partner for this year’s show. The company will support every element of the fair, from production to programming and events.
