TEFAF NEW YORK FALL RETURNS TO THE PARK AVENUE ARMORY, OCTOBER 28-NOVEMBER 1, 2017
EXHIBITOR LINE UP ANNOUNCED FOR 2ND ANNUAL FAIR
TEFAF New York Fall has announced the names of 93 dealers exhibiting at the second annual edition of the acclaimed international art fair launched last October. Focusing on fine and decorative arts and jewelry from antiquity through the early 20th century, TEFAF New York Fall will return to the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City from October 28-November 1, 2017.
Bringing together a global community of collectors, interior designers, museum curators and connoisseurs, TEFAF New York is recognized for going beyond the boundaries of a traditional art fair at the Park Avenue Armory. It serves to engage fairgoers in an immersive experience through richly curated booth presentations, dynamic programming and unique institutional collaborations that enhance the collector experience.
Dutch designer Tom Postma, whose total reimagination of the landmark Armory stunned fairgoers when it was unveiled last autumn, will once again transform the Armory. Postma’s sleek and ethereal designs for TEFAF New York Fall place historical art in a new perspective, and redefine its relevance for our time.
TEFAF New York Fall offers an unprecedented opportunity for collectors, interior designers, museums and art lovers to view and purchase strictly vetted works across a wide variety of collecting areas. These include furniture, decorations, ceramics, glass, silver, textiles, tapestries, antiquities, jewelry, paintings, sculptures, books, manuscripts, autographs, arms and armour, and Asian art. The fair offers something of interest and quality for every visitor.
“We are delighted to return to the Park Avenue Armory to build on the successful debuts of TEFAF New York Fall (October 2016) and TEFAF New York Spring (May 2017),” said Patrick van Maris, CEO of TEFAF. He continues, “We are very grateful that New York has given TEFAF such a warm reception and helped it become part of the vitally important cultural landscape here. As the United States is the largest art market in the world, we are looking forward to further our presence in New York while continuing to showcase the very best the art world has to offer.”
“When we first announced TEFAF would be coming to New York, dealers, collectors, and art enthusiasts wondered how the TEFAF experience would translate in a very different city and venue,” noted Michael Plummer, Managing Director of TEFAF New York. “We have been amazed by the positive feedback and momentum from the first two fairs and we are excited for another New York showing, this time returning to TEFAF’s roots, focusing on historic art, antiquities and Old Masters.”
While many exhibitors from the fair’s debut are returning for TEFAF New York Fall 2017, the fair also welcomes 10 new exhibitors, further strengthening both the strength and range of objects to be shown at the fair.
