Correction: This story has been updated to reflect that Nicole Berry is the second woman to hold the executive directorship of The Armory Show. A previous version of this story incorrectly stated in the headline and the body of the text that Berry was the show’s first female director, based on inaccurate information provided by a spokesperson from The Armory Show. Katelijne De Backer served as the fair’s director from 2001 to 2007, and as executive director from 2008 to 2010.
