International art fair TEFAF New York Spring has announced the 92 internationally acclaimed exhibitors participating in its debut edition, with an emphasis on modern and contemporary art & design. The Fair will take place at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City from May 4-8, 2017, with the Opening VIP Preview on May 3, 2017. The Fair is an expansion of the TEFAF portfolio, adding a new platform for today’s collectors and museums within the context of the TEFAF organization.

In addition to modern and contemporary art & design, a small number of TEFAF New York Spring dealers will exhibit jewelry, African & Oceanic art, and antiquities. The inclusion of African & Oceanic works and classical antiquities will cement the coherent aesthetic that is popular among contemporary and modern collectors.

“TEFAF is committed to a unique standard of excellence in all aspects of the art fair experience, which has made it a beloved cultural event in Europe and most recently in New York this past October. We are excited to introduce a second Fair in New York, which will focus on 20th Century and contemporary works, but also maintains the distinctive TEFAF character,” said Patrick van Maris, CEO of TEFAF. “Modern and contemporary art have long enjoyed a presence at TEFAF Maastricht, and we are looking forward to celebrating this on a larger scale in the United States.”

“The United States is recognized for the sustained vibrancy of its art market and New York is considered the global capital at its heart,” commented Michael Plummer, Managing Director of TEFAF New York. “In addition, modern and contemporary art account for the two largest segments of art sales. This, combined with the Fair’s prime location on Park Avenue and TEFAF’s reputation for excellence, has given us and our exhibitors high expectations for success.”    

The Fair’s dealers will showcase their objects in the Drill Hall and rooms along the first and second floors of the Armory. Dutch architect Tom Postma will transform the Armory for the Fair, adding new design elements that reflect the spring show’s special focus.


“It is tremendously exciting for dealers in the Modern and Contemporary sector to finally have a TEFAF-quality fair here in Manhattan,” said Christophe Van de Weghe, owner of Van de Weghe Fine Art. “We expect the Park Avenue Armory will be the central meeting place for serious collectors gathering for the week’s renowned art events, especially given the high caliber of exhibitors who will be showing this May.”

The premiere sponsor of the Fair is Invaluable. The beneficiaries of the Opening Night Reception on May 3 will be The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the acclaimed cultural programs produced by the Park Avenue Armory.
