The Armory Show is America’s leading international art fair taking place annually on pier 92 & 94, overlooking the Hudson River. Now in its 22nd year, The Armory Show is a New York cultural institution and a highly-anticipated event on the global arts calendar. With a commitment to presenting the highest-quality modern and contemporary art, The Armory Show connects the world’s foremost galleries with international collectors, curators and art professionals in the capital of the art world.
Armory Focus is an invitational section on Pier 94 that spotlights the artistic landscape of a different region each year, bringing together influential galleries, artists and art professionals to present unique geographic and cultural perspectives via gallery presentations, special projects, a dedicated symposium and the annual Armory Artist Commission. Focus: African Perspectives will consist of around 15 galleries and several not-for-profits invited by the curators and The Armory Show, presenting a global list of galleries and institutions that embrace and promote art from Africa and the Diaspora. The Armory Show will take place March 3-6, 2016 on Piers 92 & 94 in New York City.
