The Armory Show is New York’s premier art fair and a definitive cultural destination for discovering and collecting the world’s most important 20th and 21st century artworks.

Staged on Piers 92 & 94, one of the city’s industrial gems, the fair features presentations by leading international galleries, innovative artist commissions and dynamic public programs by the Hudson River. Since its founding in 1994, The Armory Show has served as a nexus for the international art world, inspiring dialogue, discovery and patronage in the visual arts.


History of the Armory Show 

The Armory Show was founded in 1994 by four New York gallerists—Colin de Land, Pat Hearn, Matthew Marks and Paul Morris—who sought a platform to present and promote new voices in the visual arts. Originally known as the Gramercy International Art Fair, named after its initial location in the legendary Gramercy Park Hotel, The Armory Show acquired its present-day name following the fair’s migration to the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue in 1999. The fair’s name was chosen in homage to the legendary 1913 exhibition of the same name that famously showcased avant-garde works by European artists previously unseen in America. Named for this historic art event, the current Armory Show was inspired by the idea of presenting new art from around the world together under one roof.. Since its founding 23 year ago, The Armory Show has stayed firm to its original mission, promoting galleries and their artists by connecting them to patrons, curators and critics from around the world. Today, The Armory Show welcomes over 65,000 visitors annually and serves as an important nexus for the international art world.
