Applications are now open for the 25th anniversary edition of The Armory Show, taking place March 7–10, 2019 with a VIP Preview Day on Wednesday, March 6. Following the success of the 2018 edition, the fair returns to Midtown Manhattan, marking 25 years as New York’s leading show for modern and contemporary art.
The Armory Show 2019 will host five distinct exhibitor sections across Piers 92 & 94, incorporating two curator-led sections alongside an array of exciting programming for its 65,000 annual visitors. Prospective exhibitors may apply to one or more of the following exhibitor sections—Galleries, Insights, Focus, Presents and/or Platform—detailed below:
In Galleries, the core section of The Armory Show, leading international galleries present outstanding 20th and 21st century artworks across a range of media. Booth proposals must include works made after the year 2000.
Dedicated exclusively to 20th century artworks, Insights emphasizes solo-artist, dual-artist and thematic presentations by established modern and contemporary galleries. This section highlights canonical works of modernism and the post-war era as well as important rediscoveries.
Organized by an appointed curator, Focus is devoted to solo- and dual-artist presentations of today’s most relevant and compelling artwork. The 2019 Focus curator and theme will be announced at a later date.
Presents is a platform for emerging galleries no more than ten years old to showcase recent work through solo- and dual-artist presentations. Applying galleries must be founded after January 2009 and proposed artworks less than three years old.
Platform is a curated section offering artists the opportunity to realize large-scale installations and performances that respond to and activate the fair’s industrial venue. The 2019 Platform curator and theme will be announced at a later date.
