Today, The Armory Show announced the galleries participating in its fourteenth edition, which will take place from Mar. 8-11, 2012 on Piers 92 and 94 in Manhattan. The Armory Show has come to be known as somewhat of the authoritative international contemporary and modern art fair, and unequivocally the most important annual art event in New York City.
The show’s Contemporary portion on Pier 94 will feature 120 leading international exhibitors, 19 invited exhibitors in Armory Focus: The Nordic Countries, 11 exhibitors in the inaugural edition of Solo Projects and 5 organizations participating in the Not-for-Profit Section. A must for international art collectors–30 counties will be represented. The Armory Show–Modern, which is a section dedicated to international dealers specializing in historically significant Modern art, will present 69 exhibitors representing nine counties. The Armory Show will also be inaugurating three exciting programming initiatives: Armory Film, Solo Projects, and the fair will launch its new Media Lounge where on-site programs including Armory Film, Open Forum, the lively talk series, and Armory Performance will take place.
And because we love the haute things in life, we are excited to report that The Armory Show is introducing a new private VIP hour, offering VIP ticket holders the opportunity to view works, speak to dealers, and walk the floor for one hour before the fair opens to the general public, each day of the fair.
