The inaugural TEFAF New York Fall in October 2016 introduced North American audiences to an immersive fine art and antiques fair experience through richly curated exhibitor presentations, dynamic programming, and significant institutional collaborations. The new tradition continues this October to much anticipation, as organizers look to build upon the success of 2016.

Hosted once again at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City, TEFAF New York Fall 2017 will feature 93 dealers and galleries focusing on fine and decorative arts and jewelry from antiquity through the early 20th century, circa 1920. TEFAF New York Fall, to be held October 28-November 1, “is recognized for going beyond the boundaries of a traditional art fair at the Park Avenue Armory,” according to the event website. “TEFAF New York Fall offers an unprecedented opportunity for collectors, interior designers, museums and art lovers to view and purchase strictly vetted works across a wide variety of collecting areas. These include furniture, decorations, ceramics, glass, silver, textiles, tapestries, antiquities, jewelry, paintings, sculptures, books, manuscripts, autographs, arms and armour, and Asian art.”

TEFAF CEO Patrick van Maris said, “We are delighted to return to the Park Avenue Armory to build on the successful debuts of TEFAF New York Fall (October 2016) and TEFAF New York Spring (May 2017). We are very grateful that New York has given TEFAF such a warm reception and helped it become part of the vitally important cultural landscape here. As the United States is the largest art market in the world, we are looking forward to furthering our presence in New York while continuing to showcase the very best the art world has to offer.”

TEFAF New York Managing Director Michael Plummer added, “When we first announced TEFAF would be coming to New York, dealers, collectors, and art enthusiasts wondered how the TEFAF experience would translate in a very different city and venue. We have been amazed by the positive feedback and momentum from the first two fairs and we are excited for another New York showing, this time returning to TEFAF’s roots, focusing on historic art, antiquities, and Old Masters.”
