The Armory Show, the International Fair of New Art, is the world's leading art fair devoted exclusively to contemporary art. In its eighth annual exhibition, The Armory Show 2006 will present 148 international galleries, including many of the most important contemporary dealers showcasing new art from around the world.
New York is home to more collectors, galleries, critics and artists than any other city in the world. This March, they will be joined by many thousands of their peers from around the globe making New York the true center of the international art world.
The Armory Show 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 very site of the now legendary Armory Show of 1913 that introduced modern art to America and for which The Armory Show is named.
After the deaths of Founding Members Pat Hearn and Colin De Land the remaining founders of The Armory Show established a benefit foundation in their name. The Pat Hearn and Colin De Land Cancer Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to provide assistance for medical expenses to members of the visual arts community with cancer.
