The Art Dealers Association of America Art Show takes place March 5 through March 9, 2014 at the historic Park Avenue Armory.
Gallery presentations at the 26th annual ADAA Art Show, the nation’s longest running fine art fair, will feature thoughtfully curated solo, two-person, and thematic exhibitions by 72 of the nation’s leading art dealers. Organized by the ADAA to benefit the Henry Street Settlement, the Art Show presents exhibitions from the nation’s leading art dealers and galleries showcasing a variety of museum-quality exhibits ranging from cutting-edge, 21st century works, to masterpieces from the 19th and 20th centuries.
To inaugurate The Art Show 2014, a Gala Benefit Preview will be held on Tuesday, March 4th from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and will benefit Henry Street Settlement, a not-for-profit multifaceted agency that provides innovative social service, arts and health care programs to New Yorkers of all ages.
The Art Show committee announced that Ann Hamilton will be in residence during the run of the fair in Carl Solway Gallery’s booth. The artist will photograph visitors through a membrane that registers in focus only what directly touches its surface. This shallow focus, a consequence of the visual qualities of the membrane, emphasizes the point of contact and continues Hamilton’s interest in finding visual forms for tactile experience. She first used the thermoplastic polyurethane film, known as Duraflex® in The Warhol Museum’s Factory Direct: Pittsburgh, a project partnering artists with industries. All art fair attendees are invited to participate. The images will expand Hamilton’s UNUM series, and everyone photographed will receive by mail a small ephemera portrait of someone from the series. Framed portraits will be available for commission.
Visitors to The Art Show 2014 are in for a special treat as Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers of Brooklyn, NY will have a pop-up shop for the run of the show. Specializing in used, rare, and new books on contemporary art, architecture and design, Spoonbill & Sugartown at The Art Show will feature publications not only on the artists exhibited by the 72 galleries participating in the fair but also various artists represented by ADAA membership. The shop will be open during public visiting hours.
