The Armory Show – International Fair of New Art
MARCH 5-8, 2009
The Armory Show – The International Fair of New Art, has been the world’s leading art fair devoted exclusively to contemporary art since its introduction in 1999. The fair is the successor to the highly acclaimed Gramercy International Art Fairs that attracted thousands to their New York, Los Angeles and Miami shows between 1994 and 1998.
The Armory Show was first presented in February 1999 at the 69th Regiment Armory, the site of the now-legendary Armory Show of 1913 that introduced Modern art to America. The fair became part of the Merchandise Mart family in 2007.
