Mission of Armory Arts Week

Established in 1994 and held annually on Piers 92 & 94, The Armory Show is New York's premier international art fair, showcasing over 200 galleries from around the world. Offering ambitious programming, curatorial initiatives and specially commissioned projects, The Armory Show combines access to high quality modern and contemporary art with a commitment to spotlighting new and emerging voices in the visual arts. Now in its 22nd year, The Armory Show remains a highly-anticipated event on the global arts calendar, connecting the world's leading galleries with international collectors, curators and art professionals in the capital of the art world. Armory Arts Week strives to take advantage of this yearly convergence of the world's top collectors and art enthusiasts by proudly consolidating and promoting a diverse selection of our city's own cultural offerings.

In celebration of New York’s unparalleled artistic communities, Armory Arts Week works to highlight the distinct non-profit cultural organizations of our city’s multiple neighborhoods and boroughs. Throughout the week of The Armory Show, we promote a different neighborhood each day with cultural events for all levels of visitors.

This concept of a week of non-profit arts-related events was born out of the festivities and widely-felt excitement generated by The Armory Show, and was formalized with the support of the city in 2009. Since then, Armory Arts Week has continued to expand its reach throughout all five boroughs of New York. From elaborate benefit parties to interactive public programming, The Armory Show hopes that Armory Arts Week will continue to enrich the public through the promotion of New York’s exceptional arts-related events.
