Armory Focus:Berlin

The twelfth edition of The Armory Show marks another milestone for the fair with the introduction of Armory Focus, a new section that will feature an important art community every year and is premiering with Berlin.

Armory Focus:Berlin includes 22 of the German capital’s leading emerging and established galleries. “We want to cross-pollinate art communities,” says Executive Director Katelijne De Backer. “We want our Berlin dealers to benefit from the vitality of Armory Arts Week and for New York City to benefit from Berlin’s creativity.”

“Our mission is to offer collectors the best art from 1900 to today,” adds Vice President Paul Morris. “We introduced The Armory Show – Modern last year to give the fair a broader historical span, and this year, with Armory Focus, we expand on our original mandate of providing a rich platform for primary market gallerists.”
