Following on the impressive success of the inaugural TEFAF New York Fall in October 2016, TEFAF New York Fall will return to the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City this year
from October 28-November 1.
Last October, TEFAF New York Fall introduced North American audiences to an immersive fair
experience at the Armory, through richly curated exhibitor presentations, dynamic programming
and unique institutional collaborations. Each of these elements served to enhance the collector
experience and brought together a global community of collectors, interior designers, museum
curators and connoisseurs. TEFAF New York is recognized for going beyond the boundaries of
a traditional art fair at the Park Avenue Armory.
The Armory will once again be transformed by Dutch designer Tom Postma, whose
reimagination of the landmark Armory stunned fairgoers when it was unveiled last Autumn.
Postma’s sleek and ethereal designs for TEFAF New York Fall provide a stunning backdrop for
the extraordinary objects presented by each participating dealer.
At TEFAF New York, buyers can purchase strictly vetted works across a wide variety of
collecting areas — furniture, decorative arts, ceramics, glass, silver, textiles, tapestries,
antiquities, jewelry, paintings, sculptures, books, manuscripts, arms and armour, and Asian art.
The Fair offers something of interest and quality across a wide range of collecting fields.
“We are delighted to return to the Park Avenue Armory to build on the successful debuts of
TEFAF New York Fall (October 2016) and TEFAF New York Spring (May 2017),” said Patrick
van Maris, CEO of TEFAF. He continues, “We have been overwhelmed by the response
TEFAF New York has received so far. Many collectors and museum representatives have
called it a “gamechanger” and a welcome addition to the international art calendar. The United
States is the largest art market in the world, and we are looking forward to cementing our
presence in New York while continuing to showcase the very best the art world has to offer.”
“TEFAF is taking the lead to bring a fresh perspective to the world of historical art, and we are
continuously refining TEFAF New York’s collector experience,” says Michael Plummer,
Managing Director of TEFAF New York. “The recently unveiled Fall exhibitor list reflects
exciting new additions and collecting areas which add greatly to the dynamic mix of the Fair.
New programming highlights and other events are in the works for Fall 2017.”
