(New York, USA)
New York’s premier art fair, The Armory Show, opened to the public today (yesterday’s opening was guests only) at Piers 92 & 94, presenting from established masters of the early 20th century to the next generation of emerging artists. This is the 23rd edition of the event, which in 2017 brings together galleries from 30 countries around the world.
Only four out of the 210 participating galleries are Brazilian: Luisa Strina, Nara Roesler and Silvia Cintra + Box 4 in the Galleries section, the main one of the fair, and Bergamin & Gomide, which takes part in a section exclusively dedicated to artworks made before the year 2000, Insights. Amongst these galleries, two will be featuring artworks by former PIPA Prize nominees: Silvia Cintra + Box 4, which presents works by Maria Klabin alongside Ana Maria Tavares‘ and Miguel Rio Branco‘s, and Nara Roesler, showcasing pieces by Lucia Koch as well as by other nine contemporary Brazilian artists.
The four galleries are part of what The Armory Show’s Executive Director Benjamin Benocchio has called “the strongest exhibitor list in several years”: “The Armory Show team has spent the last year listening to our gallery clients and visitors, and in response, we have made many radical changes and improvements to the show,” he says. This edition of the fair runs until Sunday, March 5th.
