Looking Ahead to TEFAF New York Spring


The much-anticipated TEFAF New York Spring 2017 will open with a VIP preview on 3 May. Organisers seem optimistic that the inaugural exhibition will impress. The show is scheduled to run concurrently with Frieze New York. It will distinguish itself from TEFAF Maastricht and the TEFAF New York Fall edition by focusing more on modern and contemporary art as well as design. 

While TEFAF Maastricht generally attracts upwards of 270 international exhibitors, TEFAF New York Spring is intended to be far more intimate. Currently, 92 international exhibitors are scheduled to participate. In keeping with TEFAF tradition, multiple dealers of antiquities, fine jewellery, and African and Oceanic artworks will be on hand. But merchants of contemporary and modern works will make up the vast majority of participants, a nod to the reputation New York has as a top current global market for such items. 

In addition to the specialisation in content, TEFAF has also contracted Dutch architect Tom Postma to redesign the Park Avenue Armory for the show in an effort to add to its contemporary atmosphere. General admission to TEFAF New York Spring begins on 4 May and the show runs through to 8 May.
