The 10 Best Booths at New York’s Armory Show: Stunning Sculptures, Under-Recognized Pioneers, and ‘Mindscapes’

On Thursday, the Armory Show opened in its new home at New York’s Javits Center. With timed entries, proof of vaccination, and other pandemic restrictions in place, the mood at the fair on its VIP day was much more subdued than in past years. But that seemed to be to the fair’s benefit, allowing for a more relaxed way to visit over 150 booths ­in a spacious layout. In an interview on opening day, Armory Show executive director Nicole Berry said that galleries were reporting strong sales and that collectors were pleased by the fair, which is now taking place in the fall for the first time. “This is the start of a new chapter for the Armory Show,” Berry said. “This is an opportunity to take this fair to the next level. The fair’s new layout, by Frederick Fisher and Partners, is allowing the art to shine.”

Below a look at some of the best art at the fair, which runs through Sunday, September 12.
