The Armory show officially started yesterday and will be running through the weekend with the primary objective of showcasing the best art of the 20th & 21st century.
If you’re a patron of the art world, an avid collector or just someone who’s interested in cultural events taking place in the city, then you won’t want to miss out on The Armory Show. Founded in 1994, this fair provides a platform for international galleries and artists on a rise to showcase their new work in an effort to promote discourse within the visual arts world. For the past 25 years, the Armory Show has successfully created a name for itself as one of the most important art events in the city with over 65,000 visitors per year.
- Focus: explores identity through figuration of both real and imagined forms
- Insights: imagines solo, dual artist and thematic presentations of art works made before the year 2000
- Galleries: presentations of 20th & 21st century artworks from leading international galleries
- Presents: a platform for galleries less than 10 years old to showcase emerging talents
In addition there’s also a section called Armory Live, which includes panel discussions and artist talks open for the public to attend. There will be two events per day, with topics ranging from the changing landscape of art collection, New York City’s non-confirming identity over the decades, the relationship between art and criticism the past couple of years and much more.
