NYC Art Fairs to Check Out This Spring

There are endless ways to discover art in New York without traipsing around a quiet museum. If you’ve already met The Met, head to one of the NYC art fairs that come to town every spring. Whether you want to meet international artists or pick up a piece of affordable art to take home with you, these shows are all you need to get a good culture fix.


The Armory Show

March 7-10

Head to the Hudson River piers for the 25th annual Armory Show. (It’s unrelated to the Gothic-revival Park Avenue Armory, which is a venue for avant-garde visual and performing arts.) On the banks of the Hudson, you can explore more than 200 exhibitions from nearly 40 countries around the world. Visit the Armory Show website for tickets and more information.


Affordable Art Fair

March 28-31

If you’re thinking of starting a sensible art collection, this is the show for you. Contemporary art featured at the Affordable Art Fair starts at just $100 includes original works by local, national, and international exhibitors.



April 4-7

Experience the largest international gathering of gallery owners, art dealers, interior designers, and architects in the world. More than 35,000 art enthusiasts visit Artexpo New York in search of pieces that will shape trends in galleries worldwide. The 2019 theme is TRANSFORM, featuring works of art that challenges the status quo, changes our perceptions, and pushes us to see ourselves and others from a new perspective.


Frieze New York

May 2-5

View and buy art from more than 1,000 of today’s leading artists and experience a curated program of talks, performance and new artist commissions at Frieze New York on Randall’s Island Park. Discover emerging galleries (those that have been around for less than 10 years) from around the world, from Buenos Aires to Shanghai.
