See Highlights from the 2020 Armory Show
The 2020 edition of the Armory Show opens to the public later this week, running from March 5 to March 8, with a preview day on March 4. This year, more than 180 local, national, and global exhibitors will gather at New York’s Piers 90 and 94. Mega-enterprise Gagosian will be joined by returning galleries such as 303 Gallery (New York), Victoria Miro (London and Venice), Jeffrey Deitch (Los Angeles and New York), and Sean Kelly (New York and Taipei). Newcomers to the fair include Carbon 12 (Dubai), Denny Dimin Gallery (New York), Microscope Gallery (Brooklyn), and Yavuz Gallery (Singapore).
Pier 90 will host the 2020 Focus section, titled “Another time, another place” and organized by Jamillah James, curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. The exhibition will present artworks that focus on the boundary between fact and fiction, including sculptures by Katja Larsson presented by Aicon Contemporary, collages by Jamal Cyrus at Inman Gallery, and paintings by Cynthia Daignault presented by Night Gallery. The 2020 edition also features the first edition of “Perspectives,” an exhibition dedicated to reframing historical artwork within a contemporary context. The inaugural edition is curated by Nora Burnett Abrams, the director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, and features artists such as Joseph Cornell and Robert Indiana.
Highlights at the 2020 fair include an exhibition of work by Derrick Adams and Mickalene Thomas presented by Tandem Press, photography by Gordon Parks at Chicago’s Rhona Hoffman Gallery, Tracey Emin presented by Galleria Lorcan O’Neill in Rome, and Jeffrey Gibson’s beaded, tasseled figure at Roberts Projects. Stop by the Armory’s Town Square for a look at American artists Edward Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz’s installation The Caddy Court, exhibited for the first time in the United States since 1997 by L.A. Louver.
