Two Major Art Shows at the Midtown West Piers: The Armory Show and VOLTA NY March 8-11

By A. E. Colas, Contributing Writer, March 1, 2018

The Armory Show and VOLTA NY are two annual fairs showcasing the best in 20th and 21st century art. With over 200 international exhibitors, these two events cover just about every major art movement of the time as well as cutting edge works in the latest materials. If you’re looking to find out more about 20th century or contemporary art, these shows are just what you need.

The Armory Show also has special areas dedicated to such themes as young galleries (in operation for ten years or less), emerging artists, and site-specific installations on view for the length of the show. You’ll find a lot of new ideas here and some very interesting takes on the role of the artist in the world.

VOLTA NY’s theme this year is Solo Focus – Global Vision. With its collection of single artist projects alongside conversations with curators, collectors, and artists, this fair gives an intimate insider’s view of the art scene in the 21st century. It’s a carefully curated vision of present day and future art trends — definitely worth exploring.

The Armory Show is located at Piers 92/94, 711 Twelfth Avenue at 55th Street. For more information click here.

VOLTA NY is located at Pier 90, Twelfth Avenue at 50th Street. For more information click here.
