Armory Live is a year-round program of conversations highlighting influential members of the international art community—hosted at the fair, online, and throughout New York City.
Bringing together a diverse cast of notable art world figures, this panel will examine the question: what does it mean to be a collector today? Charting major shifts in the art market—from its global proliferation through art fairs, social media, and increasing speculation from investors—how has the notion and practice of collecting changed over the last quarter century?
Lisa Spellman—a key figure in The Armory Show's founding—has spent over three decades cultivating one of the most cutting-edge gallery programs in New York.
Nora Burnett Abrams, the recently appointed Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, will curate the debut edition of Perspectives, The Armory Show’s new exhibitor section devoted to 20th century artworks.
