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.
The Armory Show’s Curatorial Leadership Summit is an annual, invitation-only daylong program that aims to foster innovation in the curatorial landscape. Previous summits have invited museum directors and curators from around the world to explore, debate, and challenge important topics addressing the curatorial community. Following the closed-door session, panelists will deliver a keynote presentation which is open to the public.
Armory Access offers a platform for galleries from The Armory Show 2020 Presents section with the goal of facilitating digital engagement with their current gallery exhibitions.
Special Projects | Midnight Moment Performance
Jeffrey Gibson conceived a live dance performance by Sarah Ortegon that brought to the public the central figure in his Midnight Moment work, She Never Dances Alone (2019). This one-time performance for Armory VIPs and the public from 11:30 to midnight was followed by a viewing of She Never Dances Alone video on Saturday, March 7 from 11:57 to midnight at Duffy Square at 46th and Broadway. A multi-channel video created specifically for the screens of Times Square, She Never Dances Alone is Gibson’s celebration of the Indigenous matriarchy, centering on the jingle dress dance — an intertribal powwow dance traditionally performed by women to call upon ancestors for strength, healing, and protection.
Midnight Moment was presented every night in March by Times Square Arts in partnership with the Brooklyn Museum. The performance was presented by Times Square Arts in partnership with The Armory Show, Kavi Gupta Gallery, and Roberts Projects.
