Piers 92 & 94 will feature 275 leading contemporary and modern art galleries from 31 countries presenting an exceptional range of solo presentations, curated group exhibitions and unique installations. This year marks the second edition of our Focus section, the invitation-only component of The Armory Show that highlights the very best in emerging and established galleries from a notable art community. The 2011 Armory Focus: Latin America will highlight 18 dealers from Latin America.

Every year Armory Arts Weeks grows in popularity and influence. Through partnerships with New York museums and cultural institutions, The Armory Show and Armory Arts Week, has made New York City a destination in March. “The Armory Show is the catalyst that brings all the events during Armory Arts Week together. Each year more events join the week and as it grows it becomes more inclusive with each edition,” notes Katelijne De Backer, executive director of The Armory Show.

The Armory Show is America’s leading fine art fair devoted to the most important art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Every March, artists, galleries, collectors, critics and curators from all over the world make New York their destination during Armory Arts Week.
