The Armory Show announced today that Sally Tallant, Lauren Haynes, and Dan Byershave been selected to curate The Armory Show’s 2019 edition, marking the fair’s 25th Anniversary Year since its founding in 1994. The Armory Show will open with a VIP Preview Day on Wednesday, March 6; the fair will be open to the public March 7–10, 2019.
Led by Nicole Berry, Executive Director, The Armory Show’s 2019 edition will once again convene a selection of top international galleries in Midtown Manhattan, presenting artworks that range from historical masterpieces to the latest contemporary projects by established and emerging artists. This year’s international curatorial team reflects The Armory Show’s core identity as a place for presenting new artists and strong curatorial viewpoints.
“We are thrilled to be working with these internationally renowned curators on the occasion of our 25th Anniversary Year,” says Nicole Berry. “The gallerists who founded the fair had a strong and important vision to present new voices in the arts. Capturing the spirit of the fair’s early days, while also looking toward the future, we have selected three curators who will bring new energy and perspectives to the 2019 edition. Engaging Sally, Lauren, and Dan reflect the core of our mission, to provide discoveries, intellectual rigor, and thoughtfulness to the fair experience. This is possible through our deep relationships with international curators and institutions, which continue to make The Armory Show New York’s premier destination for top galleries, artists, and collectors alike.”
