Gallery applications are open for The Armory Show 2023, featuring curators Eva Respini, Candice Hopkins, and Adrienne Edwards, who will examine historical narratives—practices of artists both emerging and established whose work is informed by structures of inclusivity and exclusivity.

Eva Respini, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs and Barbara Lee Chief Curator at the ICA/Boston, will curate the Platform section; Candice Hopkins, Director and Chief Curator of Forge Project, will curate the Focus section; and Adrienne Edwards, Engell Speyer Family Curator and Director of Curatorial Affairs at the Whitney Museum of American Art, will chair the sixth annual Curatorial Leadership Summit.

Kicking off the fall arts season, the fair will once again take place at the Javits Center in the heart of Manhattan from September 8–10, 2023, with a VIP Preview Thursday, September 7.

Building on two successful September editions at the Javits Center, The Armory Show 2023 will again showcase a striking floor plan integrating all exhibitors under one roof, featuring expanded programming and strengthened partnerships with the city’s cultural institutions.

In addition to the core Galleries section, The Armory Show will offer its popular, rate-subsidized Solo, Focus, and Presents sections, along with the curated Platform projects section. Prospective exhibitors may apply to one or more of the following fair sections, described below:

Galleries: core presentations
Leading international galleries present outstanding 20th and 21st century artworks across a range of media.

Solo: single artist presentations
In Solo, intimate presentations focus on the work of a single emerging, established, or historic artist working in the 20th or 21st century.

Focus: curated presentations
Curated by Candice Hopkins, Focus will be dedicated to solo- and dual-artist presentations that center on emergent and established voices whose work is often decidedly outside the mainstream, including those who draw on cultural connections to tether material, image, and form in unexpected ways.

Presents: young gallery presentations
Galleries no more than ten years old showcase recent work through solo- and dual-artist presentations. Applying galleries must be founded after September 2013 and proposed artworks less than three years old.

Platform: large-scale and site-specific presentations
Curated by Eva Respini, Platform will be dedicated to large-scale installations and site-specific works under the theme of Rewriting Histories. The section will center on artists who expand or challenge the canon of art, history, or culture. Platform will examine how artists respond to the limits of official archives and narratives by using storytelling and speculative narration as a means of addressing history’s erasures and omissions.

The 2023 fair will also feature the return of the celebrated Armory Off-Site, an outdoor program of large-scale and interactive artworks displayed in key public spaces throughout New York City. Information on Armory Off-Site is forthcoming.

Curatorial Leadership Summit
Adrienne Edwards will chair the sixth annual Curatorial Leadership Summit. The curatorial convening will constellate and take as its points of departure the historical, conceptual, and material threads manifested in and developed in collaboration with Eva Respini’s Platform section and Candice Hopkins’s Focus section.
