The Armory Show is America's leading fine art fair devoted to the most important art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Since 1998, the fair has become an international institution. Every March, artists, galleries, collectors, critics and curators from all over the world make New York their destination during Armory Arts Week.

In 2010, the show initiated public programming for the first time. Events included open studios, art tours, museum discounts, performances, panels, artist discussions and parties.
