Artsy Features the 2015 New York Fairs

Explore our extensive coverage of the New York fairs—including The Armory Show, ADAA: The Art Show, PULSE New York, and Moving Image New York—plus highlights from selected satellite fairs.

Art on Paper

Art on Paper launches at Manhattan’s Pier 36. The 55 participating exhibitors will feature work by artists who look to paper as a major influence in their sculpture, drawing, painting, installation, and photography. The fair’s first edition will include monumental installations by Wayne White, Mia Pearlman, Michael Scoggins, Dave Eggers, and William Beckman, each reaching beyond traditional boundaries and into the fair’s public space.


VOLTA NY was conceived as a focused, curated, boutique event that is a place for discovery. The exhibition showcases relevant contemporary art positions regardless of the artist’s or gallery’s age. By refocusing on artists through solo projects, VOLTA NY promotes a deep exploration of the work of its selected participants. Visit the fair at Pier 90.


SCOPE is celebrated as the premier showcase for international emerging contemporary art and multi-disciplinary creative programming. SCOPE’s New York fair will commemorate its 15th anniversary in a new location: Metropolitan Pavilion West.


The SPRING/BREAK Art Show explores visions of and commentaries on exchange in all its forms: bodies in their exchange of gesture, education in its exchange of ideas, and commodity in its exchange of objects. Visit the fair at the Skylight at Moynihan Station.
THE(un)SCENE establishes and celebrates passion, by embodying the spirit of a spontaneous “Happening” with a carefully curated multimedia exhibition. The fair showcases innovative installations, performance art, painting, sculpture and participatory pieces with the goal of celebrating the spirit that underlies the work of the creative process. Visit the fair at 549 West 52nd Street.
