THE ARMORY SHOW, 3 – 7marzo 2010 


La nuova fiera Armory che prende il nome dall’edificio (69th Regiment Armory) che ospitò la mostra The International Exhibition of Modern Art per la prima volta nel 1913 fu organizzata dalla Association of American Painters and Sculptors. Dal 1994 l’Armory nuova versione ha ripreso l’attività espositiva e in anni recenti è diventata la fiera americana di punta dell’arte moderna e contemporanea degli ultimi undici anni. New York nel mese di marzo si anima ovimentando addetti ai lavori da tutto il mondo che si danno appuntamento qui per la Armory Art Week.

comunicato stampa
The Armory Show is the United States’ leading art fair devoted to the most important artworks of the 20th and 21st centuries. In its twelve years, the fair has become an international institution. Every March, artists, galleries, collectors, critics and curators from all over the world make New York their destination during Armory Arts Week.

The Armory Show 2010 also features The Armory Show – Modern, specializing in modern and secondary market material on Pier 92. Pier 94 continues to be a venue to premiere new works by living artists. With one ticket, visitors to The Armory Show on March 4–7, 2010 have access to the latest developments in the art world, and to the masterpieces which heralded them.


The Armory Show is held annually in New York City, home to more galleries, artists, critics and art institutions than any other city in the world, a mecca for serious collectors.

The Armory Show provides exhibitors two VIP-exclusive lounges and several public areas featuring restaurants and bars to meet collectors on both piers. Ombudsmen are posted throughout the fair to take care of exhibitor needs.

The Armory Show offers optional wireless internet service. Mobile reception is optimal throughout the piers. Telephone lines are available on request. Other amenities include free shuttle bus services and ample rooftop parking.
