May 4-8, 2017 at the Park Avenue Armory, New York, NY
(New York) April 12, 2017– TEFAF New York has released a “first look” at the inaugural TEFAF New York Spring Fair that will take place at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City from May 4-8, 2017, with the Opening VIP Preview on May 3, 2017. The Fair will feature 92 of the world’s most illustrious dealers who specialize in Modern and Contemporary Art and Design. In addition, a small number of 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 New York Spring follows the successful first edition of TEFAF New York Fall, launched in October 2016 at the Park Avenue Armory, concentrating on fine and decorative art from antiquity to 1920. Both TEFAF New York Fairs are an important expansion of the TEFAF portfolio, providing an additional platform for today’s collectors and museums. 
Among the world-class dealers exhibiting at TEFAF New York Spring are Acquavella Galleries, Applicat-Prazan, Di Donna, Richard Green, Hauser & Wirth, Paul Kasmin, Sean Kelly, Eykyn Maclean, Helly Nahmad, Lisson Gallery, Galerie Perrotin, Christophe van de Weghe, White Cube and David Zwirner.
