Whitewaller: The Salon Art + Design 2017 Launches in New York

This week, Whitewaller New York launches for The Salon Art+ Design.

After an amazing start to the fall exhibition season—including a fantastic, poignant, and timely show by our guest editor, Sanford Biggers, “Selah” at Marianne Boesky Gallery—we’re looking forward to what’s to come this season.

The Salon Art + Design

This November, you’ll find us first at the opening of the Van Cleef & Arpels’s “L’Arche de Noé” exhibition, with an immersive set design by none other than Robert Wilson. We’ll also be at The Park Avenue Armory for The Salon Art + Design. In our “Up Close” section, you’ll find director Jill Bokor’s take on the 2017 edition. We also catch up with Misha Kahn and Nina Chanel Abney, whose shows open at Friedman Benda and Jack Shainman, respectively, this month.

Also in November is the Performa 17 biennial, taking place in unexpected locations throughout the city for weeks, as well as the highly anticipated evening Post-War and Contemporary sales at powerhouses Christie’s and Sotheby’s, and auctions with Paddle8 and Phillips to keep an eye out for, too.

In addition to the artist Sanford Biggers privileging our pages as guest editor, we’ve got insiders like Lisa Perry, Marc Dennis, and Patricia Cronin sharing their side of New York, as well as Matthew Bauer of the Madison Avenue BID introducing our special Madison Avenue section. And don’t miss a first look at Whitewaller Miami to warm you up for the week of Art Basel in Miami Beach, just around the corner.

We’ve created Whitewaller New York to help guide you through what’s what and who’s who, and to make sure you don’t miss anything that everyone will be talking about the next day.
