For those who want to get a look at this year’s art fairs before the doors even open, there’s a new way to get inside via Artsy's designed website for the NYC art fairs. Artwork available for browsing can be found for The Armory, ADAA (The Art Show) and Moving Image.
The Armory's online preview opened on Feb, 26, one week before the opening of the art fair on Thursday (March 6). Artsy is the exclusive host this year of the Armory Show 2014 online. Even after the doors open, Artsy kiosks are available to view art virtually and can help locate the artwork within the sprawling art fair.
The 2014 Armory features 209 exhibitors representing over 2,000 artworks. Through Artsy, visitors can explore the fair, collect works from exhibiting galleries, and view editorial features, including insider picks. Viewing can take place through Artsy.net or by using the Artsy app for iPhone.
The Armory takes place from March 6 - 9, 2014. To check out the Armory preview on Artsy, visit www.artsy.net/the-armory-show.
