The art world continues to heat up in New York, with the Art Dealers Association of America’s 2016 edition of “The Art Show.” What are the exhibition/program highlights, and when do events begin?
A vast number of creative and ambitious solo exhibitions, group shows, new artists, and new works can all be expected between March 2 and 6 in New York City. Just last week, the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) announced the program and exhibition highlights for the 2016 edition of “The Art Show” — held at the Park Avenue Armory. “This year the ADAA is pleased to welcome Robert Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts, as The Art Show’s keynote speaker who will discuss the role of the arts in America’s economic landscape on Friday, March 4, at 6 p.m.” the non-profit organization says.
The ADAA writes that “The Art Show” offers “the opportunity to engage with artworks of the highest quality through intimately scaled and thoughtfully curated exhibitions that encourage close looking and active conversation with gallerists.”
Events will include 72 enlightening presentations from ADAA member galleries. Anthony Meier, chair of “The Art Show,” remarked, “This year’s presentations are dynamic, ambitious, and vibrant, and speak volumes about the global breadth of art and market expertise of ADAA members. We look forward to welcoming collectors, arts professionals, and the public to experience these high-quality presentations and engage personally with experts in the field.”
