Devan Shimoyama: Here’s What Sold at the 2022 Armory Show in New York

ArtNet News, September 12, 2022


Here's what dealers say they sold at this year's Armory Show.


After the premiere of Frieze Seoul earlier this month, all eyes turned to New York, where the Armory Show staged its 28th edition. With more than 42,000 visitors flocking to see 240 exhibitors for the fair’s second-ever outing at its new Javits Center location, executive director Nicole Berry said, “I feel like this is our proper debut.”


Although there were rumblings of seven-figure sales, the majority of listed and reported prices fell far below that threshold. That didn’t stop celebrities and art-world A-listers ranging from Paul Rudd to Hank Willis Thomas and Russel Tovey from perusing the booths, and many galleries reported institutional purchases.
