Here’s the 2014 Armory Show List

Just in time for next week’s Art Basel Miami Beach, the Armory Show today announced the exhibitors who have signed on for its 16th edition, which runs next year from March 6 through 9 on Piers 92 and 94 on Manhattan’s West Side, with a preview day on March 5. (That’s the same week that the 2014 Whitney Biennial opens to the public, so it’s shaping up to be a very fine early March in New York City.)

The release comes a bit earlier than in recent years. “The applications were really, really strong, so we’re in a position to get this news out,” the Armory Show’s executive director, Noah Horowitz, told The Observer in a telephone interview.

Over the past three years, roughly coinciding with the Frieze Art Fair’s incursion onto the Armory’s New York territory, the Armory has been at work on what Mr. Horowitz called a “seismic change,” which has involved a dramatic decrease in the number of exhibitors, in an attempt to improve the quality of offerings and provide more space for galleries and visitors. The Armory hosted 274 galleries in 2011, but decreased that to about 220 for 2012 and 215 last year. This year it is coming in at 203.

The 2014 list has retained last year’s top-flight New York and international galleries like David Zwirner, Sean Kelly, Eva Presenhuber of Zürich, Sprüth Magers Berlin London and Lisson of London, Milan and New York. “As a fair that’s the strongest sign of what one is doing—a high rate of retention,” Mr. Horowitz said.

They’re joined by a number of other major galleries, like Lehmann Maupin of New York and Hong Kong, Almine Rech of Paris and Brussels, Alison Jacques of London and Galeria Nara Roesler of Sao Paulo.

Mr. Horowitz also noted that “high-caliber blue-chip New York galleries are coming back, which has been a priority for me.” New York dealers anteing up for this round of the fair after time away, or for the first time, include James Cohan, Zach Feuer, Sikkema Jenkins & Co. and Postmasters.

Other changes include the rechristening of the emerging-gallery section as Armory Presents, which will feature 17 galleries that are less than 10 years old, each showing one or two artists. Some interesting-sounding presentations are on tap there, including a Klaus Merkel and Nicolás Guagnini doubleheader from Dusseldorf’s Galerie Max Mayer and a Jessica Dickinson show from New York’s James Fuentes. Those booths have increased in size from about 150 square feet to about 180. “That 30 square feet means quite a bit,” said Mr. Horowitz.

Philip Tinari, the director of Beijing’s Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, has also lined up 17 galleries for the fair’s Focus: China section. More than 50 percent of those dealers have not previously shown at fairs outside of Asia.

And then there are the more subtle changes, like a planned redesign of the foreboding temporary staircase between Piers 92 and 94 (which was absent last year) and a new lounge space. New York firm Bade Stageberg Cox is handling the design for a third time.

There’s also a new “12-foot high-end walling system,” Mr. Horowitz noted. “The casual observer probably won’t notice it, but the galleries definitely will,” he said, “and I think the more savvy collectors will notice that something has changed.”
