The 2018 edition of The Armory Show will open with a VIP Preview Day on Wednesday, March 7; the fair will be open to the public March 8–11. Featuring 193 galleries from 31 countries, The Armory Show will present artworks that range from historical masterpieces to the latest contemporary projects by established and emerging artists.

The fair welcomes 59 new exhibitors, including Galerie Eigen + Art (Berlin) and Gagosian (New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Paris, Rome, Athens, Geneva, Hong Kong), who both last participated in 2013, Perrotin (New York, Paris, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo), who last participated in 2011 and Regen Projects (Los Angeles), who last participated in 2015.  Of the fair’s new exhibitors, 39 will make their Armory Show debut, including Galerija Gregor Podnar (Berlin), Pearl Lam Galleries (Hong Kong), Night Gallery (Los Angeles), and Van Doren Waxter (New York).

129 exhibitors are returning to the fair, including Blain|Southern (London, Berlin), Jeffrey Deitch (New York), Lévy Gorvy (New York, London, Geneva), Victoria Miro (London), PROYECTOSMONCLOVA (Mexico City), Galeria Nara Roesler (Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, New York), and Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac (Paris, Pantin, Salzburg).

This year’s participating galleries reflect The Armory Show’s increased representation of the Asian art scene. 21 participating galleries have locations in Asia and 8 galleries based in Asia are first-time participants: BANK (Shanghai), The Drawing Room (Makati City), Empty Gallery (Hong Kong), de Sarthe Gallery (Hong Kong), Yamamoto Gendai (Tokyo), Hanart TZ Gallery (Hong Kong), Pearl Lam Galleries (Hong Kong), Take Ninagawa (Tokyo).

This year, four galleries that have previously participated in Presents, a section dedicated to young galleries, will join Galleries, the fair’s main section: espaivisor (Valencia), Daniel Faria Gallery (Toronto), Mariane Ibrahim Gallery (Seattle) and Nicodim Gallery (Los Angeles). On Friday, March 9, the fair will host its inaugural Curatorial Leadership Summit, chaired by Naomi Beckwith, Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The summit will bring together over a dozen of the world’s most prominent curators for a daylong program aimed at cultivating new ideas and developments across the curatorial landscape. The summit includes a series of closed-door conversations between over 100 invited curators, as well as an afternoon session open to the public.

Galleries, the core section of The Armory Show, will feature outstanding 20th- and 21st-century artworks in a range of media, presented by 109 leading international galleries. Highlights include a solo presentation of Nam June Paik, including a never-exhibited installation, presented by Gagosian; at Kayne Griffin Corcoran, a solo presentation of works by Mary Corse, who will have her first major retrospective in June at the Whitney Museum of American Art and whose dedicated exhibition space at Dia:Beacon will open May 2018; a solo presentation of works by JR at Jeffrey Deitch, new works by Nacho Carbonell at Carpenters Workshop Gallery; recent I-beam sculptures by Los Angeles-based sculptor Kaz Oshiro at Honor Fraser; at Kavi Gupta, works by Glenn Kaino and Beverly Fishman that examine relationships between formal aesthetics and language; new paintings by Sarah Morris at Paragon that use the architecture of the city as a starting point for rigorous formal abstractions; sculptures by Xavier Veilhan, whose practice approaches sculpture as architectural volume, at Galeria Nara Roesler; and a thematic presentation of works by Teresa Margolles, Marwa Arsanios, Julieta Aranda, Oscar Muñoz and Lawrence Abu Hamdan that challenge the definition of a portrait and address the paradoxical disappearance of portraiture in contemporary society at mor charpentier.

Insights, which comprises 32 international modern and contemporary galleries, emphasizes solo, dual- artist and thematic presentations of artworks made before the year 2000. Highlights include a series of 1970s ‘pulled wedge’ works by Los Angeles icon and ‘Cool School’ artist Ed Moses at albertz benda; a survey of major works by the Italian-Brazilian artist Anna Maria Maiolino from the 1970s through 1990s at Mercedes Viegas; 25 paintings and works on paper by Wayne Thiebaud, presented by Allan Stone Projects; at Hackett Mill, a unique pairing of paintings by David Park and Milton Avery that explores their shared interest in depicting the beauty of everyday life, a stark contrast to the dominant style of Abstract Expressionism; a collection of rare collages, created by Yayoi Kusama in 1980 and 1981 as an homage to Joseph Cornell, at Omer Tiroche Gallery; and, at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery, the first-ever United States exhibition of works by Huang Rui, a leading artist in post-Cultural Revolution China.

Presents is a platform for galleries no more than ten years old. This year, 26 galleries will showcase recent work through solo and dual-artist presentations. Highlights include a solo presentation of recent works by Athi-Patra Ruga, who adopts the trope of myth as a contemporary response to the post-apartheid era, at WHATIFTHEWORLD; at Parafin, new works by Justin Mortimer, which reflect a world in which nothing is stable or certain; at Vigo, selected works by Derrick Adams from his Future People exhibition at Theaster Gates’ Stoney Island Arts Banks; the last stage of a mechanical and conceptual research project by Peruvian artist Jose Carlos Martinat, presented for the first time in its complete context at Revolver Galeria; and Cammie Staros’ New York debut, featuring hand-built objects, which marry contemporary sculpture, Modernism, antiquity and craft, at Shulamit Nazarian.

Focus, curated by Gabriel Ritter, Curator and Head of Contemporary Art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, will feature 28 international galleries from 14 countries presenting solo or dual-artist presentations that examine how technology has both mediated representation of the physical body and imagined its emancipation in contemporary art. Details of Focus, including the presenting artists, will be released in December 2017.

Platform comprises large-scale installations and site-specific commissions staged throughout the fair, curated by Jen Mergel, formerly of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Details of Platform, including the theme, participating galleries, and artists, will be released in January 2018.
