The Armory Show Closes with Critical Acclaim
Under the Direction of Nicole Berry, the Fair Received Accolades for Enhanced Layout and Curated Sections.
The Armory Show closed on Sunday, March 11 with outstanding and consistent sales ranging from four to seven figures throughout the week, and a robust turnout of collectors from across the United States. Exhibitors noted the significant presence of curators and museum patron groups during the fair, in addition to numerous institutional acquisitions.
The 2018 edition debuted a new layout, highlighted by the expanded Focus section and new Town Square on Pier 92. The fair’s improved layout, designed by Bade Stageberg Cox, as well as the decision to reduce the number of exhibitors, was positively received by collectors and exhibitors alike.
