The Armory Show 2015
The Armory Show 2015 returns for its seventeenth edition from March 5-8, hosting 197 of the world’s premier galleries from 28 countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Having received a record number of gallery applications, the 2015 fair brings together a wide range of ambitious presentations; Pier 92 – Modern will represent art and artists from the twentieth century, while Pier 94 – Contemporary is dedicated to leading international galleries presenting new art by living artists. In its continued commitment to fostering a serious, compelling platform for emerging and established galleries worldwide, The Armory Show will feature Armory Focus: Middle East, North Africa and the Mediterranean (MENAM), curated by Omar Kholeif, in a devoted section of Pier 94. The MENAM focus is presented in collaboration with lead cultural partner, Edge of Arabia, and education partner, Art Jameel. The 2015 fair will include Armory Presents, a section devoted to single and dual artist presentations by galleries less than ten years old. The 2015 fair also kicks off Armory Arts Week, a city-wide program of cultural events and exhibitions at galleries and museums in all five boroughs of New York. The Armory Show is thrilled to announce that the fair coincides with the New Museum’s 2015 Triennial: Surround Audience, in which our Commissioned Artist, Lawrence Abu Hamdan has been included.
Noah Horowitz, Executive Director of The Armory Show remarks: “It is a very exciting moment for The Armory Show with this year’s fair marking the most focused and highest caliber edition in my tenure. The selection process for the upcoming edition was particularly rigorous and I am thrilled to see a number of notable galleries returning to the fair, as well as a strong presence of young, geographically diverse galleries who have chosen to show with us for the first time."
