Armory Week: Pier 94 – The Armory Show – Contemporary
This week, WAG is on the road, journeying to New York for one of the art world’s annual rites of spring: Armory Week. We’re taking you on a virtual tour of each fair, bringing you a glimpse of high points from our tours. See something you love? Let us know.
Our first stop had us touring the American Art Dealers Association Fair. There we found an abundance of treasures, but the high point were a set of rare Warhol trial prints. Next up, The Armory Show. Devoted to showcasing the most important works and artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, The Armory Show is a leading international contemporary and modern fair, and one of the most important art events annually in New York. It takes place every March on Piers 92 and 94 in Manhattan, and has been the impetus for numerous other fairs and exhibition openings that now take place during what’s dubbed Armory Week.
We first toured Pier 94, dedicated to Contemporary works where more than 100 international galleries showcase the work of living artists. We’ve assembled a collection of our favorites from Pier 94 below.
Check back with us tomorrow for highlights from Pier 92, Modern.
