NEW YORK, February 7, 2013 – The Armory Show, New York’s premier art fair for modern and contemporary art, is proud to announce the members of its inaugural Centennial Committee and a distinctive network of Cultural Partners to mark the 100th anniversary of the fair’s namesake, the legendary Armory Show of 1913.

"For me, the most exciting art expresses new ideas and breaks advanced ground. For this reason I love The Armory Show and I’m honored to join the Centennial Committee to celebrate the history of the avant-garde. In the company of the other members, I will see the latest art from all over the world, feeding both my eyes and my brain,” says collector and philanthropist Jarl Mohn.
Manuela Paz, Director of VIP Relations at The Armory Show notes, “It is an absolute privilege to herald the centennial of the original Armory Show of 1913 with such a strong, international roster of dedicated collectors. Through the enthusiasm of patrons, the spirit of the avant-garde has been able to flourish here in the United States in ways that our predecessors could have hardly imagined.”
