The Armory Show 2018 will host five distinct exhibitor sections across Piers 92 & 94, along with an array of compelling programming for its 65,000 annual visitors. The celebrated curatorial section, Focus, will now be open to gallery applications for 2018. Prospective exhibitors may apply to one or more of the following exhibitor sections—Galleries, Insights, Focus, Presents and/ or Platform—detailed below:

In Galleries, the core section of The Armory Show, established modern and contemporary galleries present outstanding 20th and 21st century artworks across a range of media. Booth proposals must include works made after the year 2000.

Dedicated exclusively to 20th century artworks, Insights emphasizes solo-artist, dual-artist and thematic presentations by leading international galleries. This section highlights canonical works of modernism and the post-war era as well as overlooked artistic gems and rediscoveries.

This curated section is now open to applications. Focus is devoted to presentations of new or rarely seen work by today’s most relevant and compelling artists. Proposals may include solo-artist shows or two artists presented in dialogue. Applications will be reviewed and selected by an appointed curator in consultation with fair management.

Presents is a platform for emerging galleries no more than ten years old to showcase recent work through solo- and dual-artist presentations. Applying galleries must be founded after January 2008 and proposed artworks less than three years old.

Platform offers galleries the opportunity to realize large-scale artworks, installations and performances that respond to and activate the expansive industrial spaces of Piers 92 & 94. Applications will be reviewed and selected by an appointed curator in consultation with fair management.

Note: Prospective Platform exhibitors must also apply for a Galleries, Insights, Focus and/or Presents booth. However, acceptance to the aforementioned sections is not required for participation with a Platform project.
