ADAA Member Galleries Selected to Present Ambitious Solo Exhibitions, Group Shows, and New Works at The Art Show, February 28-March 4, 2018

The Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) today announced the exhibitors for The Art Show, the nation’s most respected and longest-running art fair, which celebrates its 30th year in 2018. Held annually in New York at the Park Avenue Armory, the 2018 edition will take place February 28 through March 4, 2018, with a Gala Preview on February 27, to benefit Henry Street Settlement – marking the ADAA’s thirty-year partnership with both the venerable community organization and the city’s foremost performing arts venue. Organized by the ADAA, a nonprofit membership organization of art dealers across the country, The Art Show offers collectors, art professionals, and the public the opportunity to engage with artworks of the highest quality through thoughtfully curated presentations that encourage close looking and active conversation with the nation’s leading art gallerists.

Each year, ADAA members wishing to participate submit proposals that outline inventive curatorial concepts for single artist, dual, or group exhibitions—a process which ensures the highest standard of artistic quality and connoisseurship that has distinguished the fair for 30 years. ADAA’s Art Show Committee selected 72 proposals from member galleries that represent the breadth and depth of the Association’s art and scholarly expertise, providing audiences with a diverse range of works from the pre-Columbian period through today, by artists of a variety of genres, practices, and national and international origin. The 2018 fair will include several first-time exhibitors, including Maccarone, Jonathan Boos, Altman Siegel, Chambers Fine Art, Sicardi Gallery, and Danziger Gallery, and longtime ADAA members who are newly returning to the fair, including Anton Kern Gallery, Anglim Gilbert Gallery, Lawrence Markey, and Miles McEnery Gallery.

“We are proud to celebrate the 30th year of The Art Show in 2018, which is a testament to the thriving group of member galleries comprising the ADAA and to the lasting relationships of our members not just with artists, collectors, and art enthusiasts, but with the entire cultural community,” said Adam Sheffer, ADAA President and Cheim & Read Partner and Sales Director. “In these three decades, The Art Show has served as an anchor of the New York cultural calendar, offering visitors a unique fair experience that encourages engagement with high quality works of art and with the foremost galleries in the country. We are thrilled to continue to offer our member galleries a chance to extend their programs beyond the gallery walls and to engage the public with the incredible range of perspectives they represent.”

For the 2018 edition, a number of ADAA members will offer thoughtful solo exhibitions highlighting artists throughout history and from around the world, including several presentations of new or never-before-seen works. New photographs by Catherine Opie will be presented by Lehmann Maupin, and a range of new works on paper by Nicole Eisenman will be presented by Anton Kern Gallery. Tanya Bonakdar Gallery will also exhibit new works on paper, alongside new sculptures and hanging installations by interdisciplinary Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno. The San Francisco gallery Altman Siegel will present new abstract paintings by local San Francisco artist, Liam Everett, and never-before-seen watercolors by Milton Avery will be on view from Yares Art, alongside major paintings by the influential artist.

A number of members will present an extensive variety of works on paper, including drawing, paintings, and watercolors, such as Salon 94’s presentation of historic works on paper by Sudanese surrealist artist Ibrahim El-Salahi. A presentation by Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects of new works by American painter and printmaker Amy Cutler will also be on view, as well as significant works on paper by notable Op art exponent Bridget Riley, exhibited by David Zwirner. Washburn Gallery will offer a selection of recently rediscovered landscapes and tree studies by abstract painter Myron Stout, and Chambers Fine Art will exhibit recent abstract ink paintings on rice paper by noted Chinese artist and calligrapher Wang Dongling, alongside mixed-media paintings by Yan Shanchun.

“We are pleased to bring together ADAA members for the 30th edition of The Art Show in 2018,” added Anthony Meier, Chair of The Art Show in 2018, and founder of Anthony Meier Fine Arts. “This year’s fair demonstrates the high-quality works and dynamic viewing experience that have become synonymous with The Art Show, offering visitors the opportunity to discover centuries of art history and artists from around the world. This year, a number of members are spotlighting significant works on paper that provide new insight on the role of the medium within artists’ practices, and we are pleased that so many never-before-seen works will also be on view.”

Organized by the ADAA as a platform for dealers and a resource for the public, The Art Show is one of the nonprofit organization’s philanthropic partnerships. Admission from The Art Show and proceeds from the Gala Preview benefit Henry Street Settlement, one of New York’s leading social service, arts, and health care organizations. AXA Art Americas Corporation, a pioneering specialist in the fine art and collectibles insurance space, has returned for the seventh consecutive year as Lead Partner of The Art Show and tenth year as partner of the ADAA.
