The Armory Show – New York Piers 92&94 March 7h-10h 2013
The centennial edition of the leading New York’s art fair The Armory Show has seen its inauguration on March 6th, when the Mayor of New York, Michael R. Bloomberg has launched the event during a crowded press conference.
The programme includes over 200 specially selected galleries presenting key works from approximately 1000 artists, both contemporary and modern art masters, honouring the legacy of the original 1913 Armory Show, from which the event takes its name. The fair launches also the Armory Arts Week, a wide programme of cultural events taking place across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, as well as Armory Focus: USA.
I’m currently rushing off to attend the final day at the fair, so check out this blog later for more updates and reviews on these hectic 4 days in NYC!
