Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Presented by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) benefitting the Henry Street Settlement, the 2021 edition of The Art Show welcomes over 70 galleries, and will dedicate over half of the fair to solo artist exhibitions. The Art Show incorporates a range of in-person and virtual programming, including access to ADAA galleries and discussions with industry leaders, curators, and artists.
The fair opens with a benefit preview this Wednesday, November 3, and will bring together some of New York’s art, business, and philanthropic communities. Anticipated highlights of the fair include a presentation by Yancey Richardson of iconic self-portraits by Tseng Kwong Chi, and Tseng's photo sequence produced in collaboration with Keith Haring and Bill T. Jones. Curated especially for the Art Show is a two-person exploration of luminosity from the David Kordansky Gallery, featuring “Parabolic Lens” sculptures by Fred Eversley and new works on paper by Mary Weatherford. Among fair first-timers are Melissa S. Cody, a Navajo weaver, debuting five monumental tapestries with the Garth Greenan Gallery.
“It’s so exciting to bring members of the ADAA back together again, after an unprecedented year, to share their vibrant programs with the public, and engage directly with collectors and each other. With its new spoton the fall arts calendar moving forward, The Art Show is well-positioned to continue with its more than three-decades-long history of showcasing the high quality programs and expertise of our member galleries, as well as supporting the important work of Henry Street Settlement,” said Anthony Meier, President of the ADAA and Founder of Anthony Meier Fine Arts, and Susan Sheehan, Chair of The Art Show Committee and Founder of Susan Sheehan Gallery.
The ADAA is a nonprofit membership organization founded in 1962 that encourages public engagement with visual art through research, publications, exhibitions, and distribution of the work of contemporary artists.
