The Armory Show kicks off this weekend in New York and Corduroy will be there! We’re happy to be one of the media sponsors of the event and we’ll also have a booth there with copies of the magazine.
The Armory Show is one of the most important annual art events in New York, showcasing leading international contemporary and modern work from an international roster of galleries, artists, critics, collectors and major art-world figures. It’s a chance to have access not only to the newest developments in the art world, but also to the masterpieces that heralded them, while meeting the movers and shakers behind this ever changing industry.
This year’s Armory Show will feature the work of the 2012 Commissioned Artist Theaster Gates and the vibrant art of the Nordic Countries in Armory Focus. In total, 30 counties will be represented. The Armory Show–Modern, a section dedicated to international dealers specializing in historically significant Modern art, will present 71 exhibitors representing nine counties. The year’s edition of the Armory Show will also inaugurate three exciting programming initiatives. “Armory Film,” curated by the Moving Image Fair, will feature an international selection of contemporary video and experimental films; “Solo Projects,” a section dedicated to single artist presentations, will debut on Pier 94 featuring eleven leading young dealers from around the world; and the fair will launch its new Media Lounge where on-site programs including Armory Film, Open Forum, the lively talk series, and Armory Performance will take place.
The show – which celebrates its 14th anniversary this year – runs from March 8th – 11th at Piers 92 & 94 in Manhattan. For more information about tickets and programs, visit TheArmoryShow.com.
