An exciting rooster of special projects are set to take place across both Piers 92 & 94, including a performance by Romina de Novellis at Galerie Alberta Pane (Paris) during the VIP Preview; a live-drawing performance by Lagos-based illustrator Karo Akpokiere in the Champagne Lounge on Pier 94; a site-specific installation by South African artist Ed Young that combines humor with unexpected materials in a series of text-based works; an interactive installation by Armory Commissioned Artist, Kapwani Kiwanga, on Pier 92; and a choreographed slow-motion car collision by Jonathan Schipper of Pierogi Gallery (Brooklyn) on Pier 92, timed to occur over the 5 days of the fair.

The Armory Show will also debut a suite of four site-specific design presentations, inspired by each space’s location and function, and integrated across Piers 92 & 94. They include presentations by Stephen Burks, Sung Jang, Studio Job, Carlo and Mary-Lynn Massoud, and Studio Drift with a custom light sculpture in the Champagne Lounge on Pier 94.

The Armory Show’s annual talks program, Open Forum, will deliver a range of diverse themes and participants, meant to engage and explore a breadth of perspectives and ideas through lively discussion. Participants include: Eric Shiner, Director of The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh; New York Magazine Senior Art Critic Jerry Saltz; legendary artist El Anatsui; Founder of the Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos, Bisi Silva; Architect David Adjaye and Artist Isaac Julien as part of Surface Magazine’s Design Dialogues series; Curator and art dealer Jeffrey Deitch in a conversation sponsored by Athena Art Finance; Kim Drew, Online Community Producer at The Metropolitan Museum of Art who will participate in official online partner, Artsy’s "What's Next?” panel, a series of conversations on the future.
