The event promises a return to normalcy for art in New York City following over a year of cancellations, closures, and delays.

The Armory Show has announced galleries attending this year's fair, which will take place from 9 to 12 September at the Javits Center.

The announcement was notable for its absence of cutbacks, caveats, and special conditions, all of which became commonplace as fairs struggled to schedule and carry out their events in the shadow of Covid-19.

Frieze New York, for instance, will show just 60 galleries at The Shed from 5 to 9 May this year, down from over 190 in 2019. And this year's Expo Chicago has been bumped until 2022.

'We believe NYC will emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever, and we're excited to anchor the fall arts season at this pivotal moment when the city's cultural organizations are reopening and experiencing art in-person is becoming possible again for everyone,' said Nicole Berry, Executive Director of The Armory Show.

'The Armory Show has always been a place for profitable exchange and new discoveries, and the fair's successful return this fall will signal the resurgence of the cultural sector and serve as a barometer for the art market,' she said.

Galleries exhibiting at the Armory Show for the first time this year include: Alfonso Artiaco, Naples; Galeria Millan, São Paulo; and Proyectos Ultravioleta, Guatemala City.

Among those returning after an absence are: Cardi Gallery, Milan, London; Sadie Coles HQ, London; Kerlin Gallery, Dublin; Perrotin Paris, New York, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai; Almine Rech, New York, Paris, Brussels; and David Zwirner New York, London, Paris, Hong Kong.

For the first time, the fair will include a Solo section, featuring single-artist booths by 12 galleries, including Gunnel Wåhlstrand at Andréhn-Schiptjenko, Stockholm, and Wallen Mapondera at SMAC, Cape Town.

Thirty galleries will also participate in the fair's Presents section for galleries established in the past 15 years.

Wassan Al-Khudhairi, Chief Curator, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, is curating the Focus section, which this year explores the artist's role in shaping the future.

And large-scale installations and site-specific works on the theme of Ecologies of Care will show in the Platform section, curated by Claudia Schmuckli, Curator-in-Charge of Contemporary Art and Programming at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
