The Armory Show is New York’s premier art fair and a definitive cultural destination for discovering and collecting the world’s most important 20th and 21st century artworks. 

The fair was founded by four New York gallerists in 1994 – Colin de Land, Pat Hearn, Matthew Marks and Paul Morris – who sought a platform to present and promote new voices in the visual arts. In its 23 years, The Armory Show has stayed firm to its mission while establishing itself as an unmissable art event set in the heart of New York City and welcoming over 65,000 visitors annually.

The Armory Show will return to Piers 92 & 94 March 2-5 this year with presentations by over 200 leading international galleries, innovative artist commissions and dynamic public programs. Under the new leadership of Executive Director, Benjamin Genocchio, the 23rd edition will feature a redesigned fair layout that incorporates 20th and 21st century artworks across both Piers, a suite of large-scale projects and three days of talks programming with prominent artists, curators, critics, and collectors.
