Once again, the fair will comprise an acclaimed VIP program, a lively opening night benefit party at the Museum of Modern Art and the engaging Open Forum discussion series. Next year’s edition will also coincide with the opening of the 2014 Whitney Biennial in early March, further enhancing the line-up of Armory Arts Week events planned in partnership with New York’s cultural institutions, and attracting a wide scope of international collectors, curators, scholars, and press. For the third year running, the fair will be designed by Brooklyn-based architects Bade Stageberg Cox. Key enhancements include a refined floor plan, a more fluid connection between the Modern and Contemporary Piers, a fresh graphic identity, and improved amenities and dining options.
