The Armory Show 2014

New York

Armory Presents
This year marks the inaugural edition of Armory Presents on Pier 94, an expanded and re-branded take on Solo Projects, a section of the fair formerly dedicated to single artist presentations exhibited by young galleries. Armory Presents has broadened the scope of the original mission to provide exposure to the work of newly established galleries by granting additional display space and prominence to the section on-site. Additionally, projects will now include the work of up to two artists curated to reflect the nuanced programming of these cutting-edge international galleries. Participants include Ani Molnár Gallery (Budapest) showing Dénes Farkas and Athr Gallery (Jeddah) with Ahmed Mater and Nasser Al Salem, representing the first two galleries ever to exhibit at The Armory Show from Hungary and Saudi Arabia, respectively, along with C L E A R I N G (Brooklyn, Brussels) showing Harald Ankart; mor.charpentier (Paris) with Maria Jose Arjona and Teresa Margolles; Travess Smalley at Higher Pictures (New York); Jessica Dickinson at James Fuentes (New York); Grant Barnhart and Jeffry Mitchell at AMBACH & RICE (Los Angeles); Jessica Silverman Gallery (San Francisco) will show Hayal Pozanti; and Klaus Merkel and Nicolás Guagnini at Galerie Max Mayer (Dusseldorf).

Armory Focus
The curated section of The Armory Show on Pier 94 highlights the gallery and artistic landscape of a chosen geographic region. For the fifth Focus edition, Philip Tinari, Director of The Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, will curate Armory Focus: China, shining new light on the country’s contemporary cultural practice. In recognition of the dynamism of the Chinese art scene, The Armory Show will present an exciting selection of 17 galleries, many of whom will be exhibiting outside of Asia for the first time, including Beijing Commune (Beijing) showing Zhao Yao; a collaborative presentation of Zhang Ding by Galerie Krinzinger (Vienna) and ShanghART (Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore); He Xiangyu at White Space (Beijing); Chambers Fine Art (Beijing, New York) presenting Zhao Zhao; Chen Shaoxiong, Wang Luyan, and Zhao Liang at Pékin Fine Arts (Beijing, Hong Kong); Madein (Shanghai) showing Lu Pingyuan; and Nadim Abbas at Gallery EXIT (Hong Kong).

Tinari remarks: “This section will showcase both the dynamism of a new generation of Chinese artists and the vigor of the country’s homegrown gallery scene. Armory Focus: China marks the most comprehensive presentation of current art from China to be mounted in New York since the early 2000s."

A full list of Armory Focus: China projects and programming will be available in the new year.

Artist Commission
In honor of Armory Focus: China, Xu Zhen has been chosen as the 2014 Commissioned Artist and will lend the fair his graphic identity through printed ephemera and a specially commissioned limited edition. Xu Zhen, a “chameleon of concept," has built an extensive body of work that includes video, installation, performance, and photography. From theatrical merry pranks to quieter works playing on human sensitivity, Xu Zhen has developed a repertoire confronting social-political taboos within the context of contemporary China and beyond.
