New York – January 28, 2020 – Members of The Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA), a nonprofit organization of the nation’s leading art dealers, will join forces for The Art Show this February to showcase their vibrant programs from across the country. Opening with the annual Gala Preview on Wednesday, February 26, the 2020 edition will take place February 27 through March 1, at New York’s Park Avenue Armory. The Art Show is known for its ambitious presentations and compelling juxtapositions, drawing serious and passionate collectors, arts professionals, and enthusiasts to New York. The 2020 iteration will see more than half of its presentations dedicated to a single artist and 19 exhibitions focused on female artists, in addition to vibrant thematic and group surveys.
All proceeds from fair admission and the gala benefit Henry Street Settlement, one of New York’s leading social service, arts, and health care organizations. As Henry Street Settlement’s greatest source of unrestricted funding, The Art Show has raised over $32 million for the nonprofit through its more than three decades of partnership with the ADAA. AXA XL, a division of AXA, a pioneering specialist in the fine art and collectibles insurance space, has returned for the 9th consecutive year as Lead Partner of The Art Show, marking its 12th year of partnership with ADAA.
For the 2020 edition, The Art Show features public conversations with major collectors, curators, museum leaders, and industry experts, including Lindsay Pollock, Chief Communications and Content Officer, Whitney Museum of American Art, and Brooke Kamin Rapaport, Deputy Director and Martin Friedman Chief
Curator, Madison Square Park Conservancy. Extending programming beyond the fair, the ADAA has organized the ADAA Gallery Walk: Midtown + Upper East Side for the second year, a collaboration between an unprecedented 41 ADAA member galleries in the surrounding neighborhoods on Saturday, February 29, from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. In addition, visitors will have the chance to meet artists presenting works at the fair on Sunday, March 1, from 12:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.
ADAA Member Presentations at The Art Show 2020 Recognized for its high-quality curated presentations, The Art Show 2020 is a platform for ADAA member galleries to extend their programs beyond their gallery walls and design insightful exhibitions that collectively create a distinct and intimate fair experience. The 2020 edition will feature over 40 intimately scaled solo presentations and 19 exhibitions dedicated to female artists—an unprecedented number for the fair—as well as joint, thematic, and dual presentations that offer new perspectives on influential artists and opportunities for in-depth exploration of up-and-coming and underrecognized contributions to art history. The fair will feature many first-time exhibitors, including David Kordansky Gallery, Andrew Kreps Gallery, McClain Gallery, Gallery Wendi Norris, Franklin Parrasch Gallery, Ricco/Maresca Gallery, and Leon Tovar Gallery.
