Programming: The Armory Show 2018


The core section of The Armory Show, Galleries features outstanding 20th and 21st century artworks presented by leading international galleries. Visitors are invited to discover thousands of artworks spanning movements, mediums and cultures.


Dedicated exclusively to 20th century artworks, Insights emphasizes solo-artist, dual-artist and thematic presentations. This section highlights canonical works of modernism and the post-war era as well as overlooked artistic gems and rediscoveries.


Presents is a platform for young galleries no more than ten years old to showcase recent work from emerging artists. Solo-artist and dual-artist presentations spotlight the next generation of artistic talents, which visitors can discover in this in-depth and intimate setting.


Focus realizes the vision of an annually appointed curator through a selection of new or rarely seen work by today’s most relevant and compelling artists. This year, 28 galleries will present solo or dual-artist presentations that have been organized specifically for The Armory Show under the direction of Gabriel Ritter.


Platform stages large-scale artworks, installations and commissions across Piers 92 & 94. Now in its second edition, the 2018 Platform section, entitled The Contingent and curated by Jen Mergel, features 15 site-responsive projects by internationally acclaimed artists.
