October 25-28, 2002

Javits Center North Pavilion
New York City

The producers of the worlds largest international art fair devoted to contemporary art The Armory Show, The International Fair Of New Art will debut a new fair in October 2002 focused exclusively on photography and video, from important and rare vintage prints to photo-based contemporary art. The Armory Photography Show 2002 will open Friday, October 25, 2002, and run through Monday, October 28, 2002, at the Javits Center North Pavilion in New York City. A Vernissage for collectors will take place Thursday, October 24, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Eighty leading international dealers invited from the worlds of both photography and contemporary art will exhibit a wide array of work ranging from early print processes to film, video and digital media, with special emphasis on variety and innovation.

The Armory Photography Show 2002 will celebrate the past and future of photography and include galleries renowned for their specialization in photography as well as other contemporary media. The fair seeks to expand the collecting universe for photographs and photo-based works by bringing together the traditional photo collector with collectors of contemporary art. These two communities have seen increasing overlap, but this will be the first time they get a truly international marketplace with the quality and reputation that is The Armory Show.

The Armory Photography Show 2002 will be a smaller, selective, and keenly focused fair where every piece is a stand out. The North Pavilion proved especially popular with exhibitors and guests when The Armory Show 2000 was presented there. It will provide a perfect home for photography with its natural light and clean space. It will be a fair of manageable size and scale.

In addition to exhibiting dealers, current plans anticipate the on-site presence of leading art and photography magazines and a special section for book publishers. The participation of the worlds most respected photographic book publishers will be unique among New York photo fairs and the producers of The Armory Photography Show 2002 consider their involvement vital to any celebration of photography and photo-based art.
