Open to the public February 28 – March 4, 2018, The Art Show 2018 marks an unprecedented three decades of partnership between three major cultural organizations, the ADAA, the venerable community nonprofit Henry Street Settlement and New York City’s foremost cross-disciplinary cultural institution, the Park Avenue Armory. Since the fair’s inception, The Art Show has raised nearly $30 million for Henry Street Settlement through fair admission and proceeds from the annual Gala Preview, which kicks off this year’s fair on February 27. AXA Art Americas Corporation, the world’s premier insurance specialist for art and collections, continues its decade-long support of the ADAA and serves for the seventh year as Lead Partner of The Art Show.

For the 2018 edition, more than half of the 72 exhibiting members will offer thoughtful solo exhibitions highlighting artists throughout history and from around the world, several of which will present new works, including Cheim & Read (New York) with the premiere of a new suite of large-scale sculptures by Lynda Benglis, Lehmann Maupin (New York) unveiling new photographs by Catherine Opie, and Tanya Bonakdar Gallery featuring new works on paper, sculpture and hanging installations by Tomás Saraceno.

Many of the fair’s solo exhibitions will offer insights on established and influential artists from the 19th century through the present day, such as Mildred Thompson, whose abstract paintings and works on paper will be presented by Galerie Lelong & Co. (New York), and Dotty Attie whose multi-panel compositions will be exhibited by P.P.O.W (New York). As one of his first public showings in the United States, Italian artist Antonio Calderara’s works will be presented by Anthony Meier Fine Arts (San Francisco), and never-before-seen watercolors by Milton Avery will be exhibited by Yares Art (New York & Santa Fe), alongside major paintings. Jill Newhouse Gallery (New York) will also take a renewed look at the influential post-Impressionist Pierre Bonnard, through his drawings, watercolors, and paintings.

Other notable solo presentations include a selection of Tony Smith’s sculptural maquettes, presented by Pace Gallery (New York, London, Palo Alto, Beijing, Hong Kong, Paris, Seoul), which highlight the artist’s modular system of formal and spatial organization. Salon 94’s (New York) presentation will showcase historic works on paper by pioneering Sudanese artist and former politician Ibrahim El-Salahi.

With its distinctly intimate atmosphere, The Art Show also provides a platform for member galleries to mount thematic and group exhibitions exploring a range of artistic practice. Presentations include a display of photographs exploring the visual and psychological intrigue of doubles, pairs and diptychs, presented by Pace/MacGill Gallery (New York); and Jeffrey H. Loria & Co., Inc. (New York) will examine artists’ representations of the face and its expressions throughout the history of art. Tracing the history of American art on paper, Menconi + Schoelkopf Fine Art, LLC (New York) will showcase a number of masterworks in the medium; and David Zwirner will celebrate the gallery’s 25th anniversary with a selection of works by each of the artists it represents.
