The Armory Show 2018.

TEDDY WOLFF/COURTESY THE ARMORY SHOW

Even though the Armory Show is being partially relocated and Volta has been canceled, Armory Week—which is really a fortnight, because of the ADAA Art Show early date—must go on. Below is a concise guide to the fairs ahead. Note well: These listings include only public dates and times.

The Armory Show
Piers 90, 92, and 94, March 7–10
The 2019 Armory Show, which experienced a last-minute location change, will welcome 194 international exhibitors, 59 of which are new to the fair. Antoine Levi (Paris), David Nolan Gallery (New York), and Öktem&Aykut (Istanbul) are among the first-time participants. Marquee names including Blain|Southern (London and Berlin), James Cohan (New York), Kayne Griffin Corcoran (Los Angeles), Lisson Gallery (London and New York), and Pace Gallery (New York, London, Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Palo Alto, and Geneva) will also show their wares at the event. This year’s Armory Live program will address topics like American national identity, feminist provocations, and the role biennials play in the art world. Some of the speakers in the upcoming conversation series are ARTnews Editor-in-Chief Sarah Douglas, dealer Sean Kelly, and curator Lauren Haynes. Single-day admission on weekdays is $52, and timed tickets for weekends cost $57.

Clio Art Fair
550 West 29th Street, March 8–10
Armory Week’s self-proclaimed “anti-fair,” Clio spotlights artists without exclusive gallery representation in New York. The event, which takes its name from the muse of history in Greek mythology, will showcase work by Alejandra Morales Garza, Ali Anvari, Hsi Chun Huang, Michael Moffett, Sam Heydt, and others. The special project section, titled “I Want to Go Home,” will focus on physical and metaphorical borders. Entry is free on Friday, March 8, while general admission for weekend showings costs $18.

Independent New York
50 Varick Street, March 8–10
The famously booth-less fair is celebrating its tenth edition this year at Spring Studios in Tribeca with a diverse roster. Strongholds such as David Kordansky Gallery (Los Angeles), Anton Kern Gallery (New York), SculptureCenter (New York), and White Columns (New York) will be accompanied by book presses such as Phaidon and Printed Matter, Inc. The New Museum will also be throwing its hat in Independent’s ring as an exhibitor. One-day admission is $29, and a portion of the fair’s ticket sales will be donated to the New York nonprofit space White Columns.

Spring/Break Art Show
866 United Nations Plaza, March 6–11
Spring/Break, the brainchild of Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori, is known for inhabiting unconventional exhibition spaces, such as St. Patrick’s Old School, a vacant post office, and the former Condé Nast offices in Midtown Manhattan. This year, under the theme of “Fact and Fiction,” the fair will take place at the former Finnish and Liberian Embassies. Spring/Break celebrated its inaugural edition in Los Angeles earlier this month, but this year marks its eighth edition in New York. Exhibitions at the fair are organized by guest curators who are selected through an application process, and this year’s iteration includes artist Dustin Yellin, photographer Andres Serrano, Anna Zorina Gallery (New York), and many more. Single-day, timed tickets cost $18.
