Spring Masters, New York
Under the new leadership of Artvest Partners, The Spring Show NYC has been re-envisioned as Spring Masters, New York with a new focus on presenting expertly-selected works of traditional art in a contemporary context. Opening at the Park Avenue Armory on April 30, 2014, Spring Masters boldly reimagines the international art fair and fosters a dialogue on collecting across categories, and the inclusion of traditional art in the context of contemporary living. Coinciding with the May auctions, the fair responds to a demand in the market for high-quality presentations of traditional art, presenting works from antiquity through the 20th century and across cultures and geography. By refocusing on curation and connoisseurship and enlisting Rafael Viñoly to create a new design for the Park Avenue Armory, Spring Masters is setting a new standard for such shows in New York and providing audiences with an experience of traditional art that is as exciting and compelling as that of contemporary art.
