First organized by the association of American Painters and Sculptors in 1913, the Armory Show was designed to bring to the public eye a plethora of exquisite creations. Envisioned to become the largest art exhibition in the United States yet, the Armory Show today at it’s seventeenth return brings together 197 galleries from 28 countries around the world.

Curated by Omar Kholeif, this year’s focus is on art from the Middle East, North Africa and the Mediterranean (MENAM) located in a dedicated section on Pier 94. Held from the 3rd to the 5th of March 2015, this event will take place on Pier 92 and Pier 94 New York and will yet again inscribe itself in Art History for bringing together the most reputed and renowned galleries and artists under one roof.
