On Monday, The Armory Show released its list of exhibitors for the fair’s 18th edition (and 22nd year), taking place the first week of March. The New York fair will welcome 204 galleries from 36 countries in 2016, its most international edition to date. That represents an increase of five galleries and eight represented countries over the 2015 show, which was its smallest edition in many years, after a whopping 289 galleries participated in 2010.

The chief architect of that reduction—and of the fair’s resurgence on the art world’s calendar—Noah Horowitz left The Armory Show this summer to direct Art Basel in the Americas. However, The Armory Show’s list presents no sign of a hit following his departure. In the Contemporary section on Pier 94, major blue-chip dealers from David Zwirner and Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac to Galerie Eva Presenhuber and Lisson Gallery are exhibiting once again in the fair’s 2016 outing. A number of prominent galleries have returned after hiatuses from The Armory Show, including Berlin’s Galerie Guido W. Baudach, WENTRUP, and Contemporary Fine Arts, Brussels’s Rodolphe Janssen, New York’s Paul Kasmin Gallery, and Cape Town and Johannesburg’s STEVENSON and Goodman Gallery. Several others, including Meessen De Clercq, Francesca Minini, and MOT International, are participating for the first time.

Set once again to be a highlight of Pier 94 in its third year, Armory Presents will see Armory newcomer DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM show technology-driven works by buzzy young artist Julian Charrière. London’s Carlos/Ishikawa will bring works by Ed Fornieles, while New York’s Higher Pictures will present a solo of Letha Wilson, whose works at GRIMM this past edition were a standout of the fair. Meanwhile, Daniel Faria Gallery will mount two new bodies of work by Generation X author and artist Douglas Coupland.

The fair’s Modern section boasts 55 galleries on its roster for next March. Dusseldorf’s Beck & Eggeling is back for a second year, again showing artists from the Zero movement, including Heinz Mack. Barcelona gallery Mayoral promises a treat at its booth, which will use over 25 works to recreate Joan Miró’s studio. New additions, including Dusseldorf’s Ludorff, Berlin’s 401contemporary, Lugano’s Cortesi Gallery, and New York’s Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects will also set up shop on Pier 92.

The Armory Show’s increase in international participants is thanks in large part to its previously announced Focus section, “African Perspectives.” Under the guardianship of curators Julia Grosse and Yvette Mutumba, the section will bring galleries from Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Kenya, and Nigeria to the fair for the first time in its 22 years and centers on a commission by Paris-based artist Kapwani Kiwanga. (Kiwanga’s Berlin gallery Tanja Wagner will realize the work and shares a booth with Paris’s Galerie Jérôme Poggi at the fair.) Other highlights include presentations of Turiya Magadlela by blank projects, ruby onyinyechi amanze by Mariane Ibrahim Gallery, and Ibrahim El-Salahi by Vigo Gallery, including pieces from the painter’s 2013 Tate survey.
