THE ARMORY SHOW ANNOUNCES ROSTER OF RENOWNED MODERN AND  CONTEMPORARY GALLERIES FOR ITS FOURTEENTH EDITION

Dynamic Mix of Exhibitions and Programming to be Presented in a Redesigned, Luxurious Space

NEW YORK, NY, January 20, 2012 – The Armory Show today announced the galleries participating in its fourteenth edition, which will take place from Thursday, March 8 to Sunday, March 11, 2012, on Piers 92 and 94 in central Manhattan. A leading international contemporary and modern art fair, The Armory Show is one of the most important annual art events in New York City. The Armory Show–Contemporary on Pier 94 will feature 120 leading international exhibitors, 19 invited exhibitors in Armory Focus: The Nordic Countries, 11 exhibitors in the inaugural edition of Solo Projects and 7 organizations participating in the Not-for-Profit Section. In total, 30 counties will be represented. The Armory Show–Modern, a section dedicated to international dealers specializing in historically significant Modern art, will present 71 exhibitors representing nine counties.

For its fourteenth edition, The Armory Show will inaugurate three exciting programming initiatives. Armory Film, curated by the Moving Image Fair, will feature an international selection of contemporary video and experimental films; Solo Projects, a section dedicated to single artist presentations, will debut on Pier 94 featuring eleven leading young dealers from around the world; and the fair will launch its new Media Lounge where on-site programs including Armory Film, Open Forum, the lively talk series, and Armory Performance will take place. The Armory Show is also introducing a new private VIP hour, offering VIP ticket holders the opportunity to view works, speak to dealers, and walk the floor for one hour daily before the fair opens to the general public.

The Armory Show-Contemporary features a global roster of elite galleries. Long-time exhibitors include Lisson Gallery (London), Sean Kelly (New York), Victoria Miro (London), Galerie EIGEN + ART (Berlin), Marianne Boeksy (New York), Peter Blum (New York), Andrew Kreps Gallery (New York), Galleria Continua (San Gimignano, Beijing, Le Moulin), Mai 36 Galerie (Zurich), Sies + Höke (Düsseldorf), Nathalie Obadia (Paris), Massimo de Carlo (Milan), Galerie Krinzinger (Vienna), Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects (Culver City) and Kukje Gallery/Tina Kim Gallery (Seoul, New York).

The Armory Show also welcomes a selection of important new international dealers to the 2012 fair, including David Zwirner (New York), Sprüth Magers (Berlin), Gallery Hyundai (Seoul), Greene Naftali (New York), Galerie Guido W. Baudach (Berlin), Galerie Jérôme de Noirmont (Paris), Klosterfelde (Berlin), Poligrafa (Barcelona), RAMPA (Istanbul), and On Stellar Rays (New York). A complete gallery list follows below. The 2012 exhibitor list is a testament to the exciting changes the fair has undertaken including a more selective exhibitor list, a re-designed floor plan designed by the award-winning, New York City-based, architectural firm Bade Stageberg Cox and an enhanced programmatic schedule. The fair will also feature an expanded array of gourmet food options by Great Performances, with menus focusing on local and seasonal items.
Solo presentations, curated exhibitions and groundbreaking new work will dominate the fair floor. On Pier 94, highlights include a new, site-specific installation, made especially for The Armory Show by Michael Riedel at David Zwirner (New York); a collaboration between Greene Naftali (New York), Galerie Krinzinger (Vienna) and Galerie Guido W. Baudach (Berlin) to present Norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard; a three-man exhibition of Olafur Eliasson, Ragnar Kjartansson and Birgir Andresson by i8 (Reykjavík); the work of heralded American sculptor Alice Aycock presented by Galerie Thomas Schulte (Berlin); a curated booth at Sean Kelly (New York) highlighting the gallery’s younger artists including Alec Soth, Peter Liversidge and Kehinde Wiley; a two-person installation from Gallery Hyundai (Seoul) featuring works by the internationally renowned artists Ai Weiwei and Lee Ufan; Philippe Parreno, Tala Madani and Leigh Ledare at Pilar Corrias (London); Bob van Orsouw Gallery (Zurich) will feature works by Ernesto Neto, Hannah Greely and Julian Opie; a solo presentation of renowned artist Leon Golub at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts (New York); a Wang Du installation at Galerie Laurent Godin (Paris); a new series by Andres Serrano, Anarchy, will debut at Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art (New York); a solo booth of 2012 Whitney Biennial artist Kate Levant at Zach Feuer Gallery (New York); and a solo presentation of new paintings, videos and wall drawings by Fabrice Hyber at Galerie Jérôme de Noirmont (Paris) in advance of the artist’s exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, in fall 2012.

“This year’s Armory Show is sure to stand out from our past editions, as well as other fairs from around the world,” notes Paul Morris, Founding Director of The Armory Show. “For the 2012 edition, we have taken a new direction for the fair. Most notable is that The Armory Show is now a smaller, more boutique fair that enriches every experience for the many collectors, curators and guests who come to The Armory Show to see the greatest art from around the world. We’ve engaged Bade Stageberg Cox to relay our floor plan with an intrinsic New York flavor, and have improved our amenities – from a top-notch gourmet restaurant and café to comfortable lounges throughout the fair.”

Noah Horowitz, Managing Director of The Armory Show says, “Our exhibitor list truly shines and showcases a thoughtful, curated mix of the leading international dealers. The work on view will enhance the Armory’s mission of presenting new work by living artists, cementing the fair’s longstanding tradition of discovery. It is very exciting to be presenting many of these galleries and their artists for the first time in New York.”

The Armory Show–Modern, a section dedicated to international dealers specializing in historically significant Modern art, will include blue-chip work from leading fine art dealers including Galerie Thomas (Munich), James Goodman Gallery (New York), Simon Capstick-Dale Fine Art (New York), Marlborough Gallery (New York), Galerie Ludorff (Düsseldorf), Oriol Galeria d’Art (Barcelona), Wetterling Gallery (Stockholm) G.A.M. Galleria d’Arte Maggiore (Bologna), Hollis Taggart Galleries (New York) and Michael Rosenfeld Gallery (New York). Deborah Harris, Managing Director of The Armory Show-Modern notes that “Armory Modern is in top form this year. Our exhibitor list is more refined and we have greatly expanded our international scope. We are honored to welcome the leading, international modern dealers to Pier 92 in March.”

Solo Projects is a new addition to the 2012 fair featuring dedicated single artist presentations with Dario Escobar at Josée Bienvenu Gallery (New York); Galeria Lucia de la Puente (Lima) presenting work by Billy Hare; Francois Ghebaly Gallery (Los Angeles) and Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery (New York) showing Patrick Jackson; Wallace Whitney at Horton Gallery (New York); Tom Fairs at KS Art (New York); Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects (Toronto) showcasing Mike Bayne; Clifford Owens on view at On Stellar Rays (New York); SEVENTEEN (London) displaying Kate Owens; TEAPOT (Cologne) showing Christian Eisenberger; and Jennifer Dalton at Winkleman Gallery (New York).
