Gallery presentations at the 25th annual ADAA Art Show, the
nation's longest running fine art fair, will feature thoughtfully curated solo, two-person, and thematic
exhibitions by 72 of the nation’s leading art dealers. The Art Show takes place March 6 through
March 10, 2013 at the historic Park Avenue Armory, with a ticketed Gala Preview on Tuesday,
March 5. All ticket proceeds from the gala and run of show benefit Henry Street Settlement, one
of New York City’s most effective social services agencies. AXA Art Insurance Corporation has
also returned for the second consecutive year as Lead Partner.
One of the premier trademarks of The Art Show remains the emphasis on one-person presentations, and the 25th Anniversary edition is no exception. With an unprecedented 39 solo shows—more than half the gallery installations—the 2013 Art Show will present exhibitions of art world icons and introduce audiences to groundbreaking new artists. David Zwirner will install a revelatory exhibition introducing show-stopping, early works by Milton Avery, as Cheim & Read will reveal never-before-exhibited works by Jannis Kounellis. Luhring Augustine’s presentation will feature work by Zarina Hashmi, who was recently the subject of a major exhibition at UCLA’s Hammer Museum. Marian Goodman Gallery will present a solo installation of work by Tacita Dean as Pace Gallery will present new work by Kiki Smith. Lehmann Maupin will offer a solo booth presentation of work by Mary Corse, highlighting her innovative technique of painting with glass microspheres. Sean Scully’s Black Paintings and Works on Paper (1975-1980) presented by Galerie Lelong will focus on a select group of the artist’s under-recognized yet seminal works. Sean Kelly Gallery’s booth will feature Robert Mapplethorpe’s radiant photographic portraits of fellow artists and art world luminaries.
In addition to solo shows, The Art Show 2013 remains unparalleled with its installation of curated, thematic exhibitions. Acquavella Galleries, Inc. will present a curated thematic show, Masterworks Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the ADAA, highlighting key works displayed and sold during the five decades of their ADAA membership. Specific Spaces, an exhibition from Barbara Krakow Gallery will feature Bernd & Hilla Becher, Peter Downsbrough, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Julian Opie, Liliana Porter, and Richard Serra. A survey juxtaposing Cubist and Pop artists will be on view at Richard L. Feigen & Co including works by Braque, Picasso, Rosenquist, Wesselman and Ray Johnson.
International art insurance specialist, AXA ART, returns as Lead Partner of The Art Show 2013. In addition to the Art Show, AXA ART has, since 2008, collaborated with and supported the ADAA Collectors’ Forum Series which brings together the most prominent collectors and art market experts to cultivate knowledge and education in the fine arts.
