The Armory Show 2017 is NYC’s big international art fair

The Armory Show is an annual international art fair held in New York City every March as part of Armory Week. The Armory Show is one of NYC’s major art fairs.

About the Armory Show

The original Armory Show was a historic 1913 exhibition at the 69th Regiment Armory that introduced European modern art to Americans. It was the first time most Americans saw the Fauvist, Cubist, and Futurist art of figures such as Paul Cezanne, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Marcel Duchamp.

The current Armory Show was founded in 1994. The first show presented new work by living artists at the Gramercy Park Hotel. It renamed itself The Armory Show when the fair moved to the 69th Regiment Armory in 1999.

Today The Armory Show takes over Piers 92 & 94 on Manhattan’s West Side. Modern works are shown on Pier 92. Contemporary work is shown on Pier 94. The show is seen by over 65,000 visitors annually and is reported to sell around $85 million dollars work of art.

Art critic Benjamin Genocchio, formerly of Artnet, is the show’s Director.


The Armory Show 2017

The 23rd Armory Show 2017 at Piers 92 94 from March 2-5 is made up of exhibitions by over 200 galleries from 30 countries.

The event kicks off with The Armory Party on Wednesday, March 1. It is a benefit for The Museum of Modern Art hosted by the museum’s Director Glenn D. Lowry. There will be a live performance by St. Lucia.
