Ben Genocchio to run the next Armory Show

The Armory Show has revealed the 207 exhibitors at its next New York on 2 to 5 March. New arrivals include Jeffrey Deitch (New York), Dominique Lévy (New York, London, Geneva), Pace Gallery (New York, London, Beijing, Hong Kong, Paris, Palo Alto) and White Cube (London, Hong Kong). But this year, some big-name participants will be missing, including the David Zwirner Gallery (New York, London). Also off the list are the Goodman Gallery (Johannesburg, Cape Town), Alison Jacques Gallery (London) and Fine Arts Contemporary (Berlin).

The Estate of Sigmar Polke is now represented by David Zwirner

As of 9 October 2015, the David Zwirner gallery in New York will represent The Estate of Sigmar Polke. David Zwirner said, “being able to work with The Estate of Sigmar Polke is a dream come true. I had the great fortune of meeting Sigmar and witnessing firsthand the enormous influence he exerted on his generation and the ones that followed. His creativity and curiosity knew no bounds, and his ability to innovate across different media is unparalleled. We are very much looking forward to presenting and exploring the different facets of his work as we develop exhibitions with the Estate.” The gallery is organising its first exhibition of Polke’s work in collaboration with the Estate which will take place in New York in May 2016. Sigmar Polke, from Germany (1941-2010), was an artist of the postwar era. He is recognised for his multidisciplinary body of work including paintings, photographs, drawings, prints, sculptures, installations and films. The Estate of Sigmar Polke is intended as the central point of contact for all those who wish to engage with Sigmar Polke’s works, whether they are scholars or artists. Polke’s work was recently the subject of a critically acclaimed travelling retrospective that was held from 2014-2015 at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Tate Modern, London and the Museum Ludwig,...
