Collective Design moves dates to align with Armory Show

Collective Design will change its dates to March 9 to 11, 2018, in tandem with Armory Arts Week in New York. The collectible design and art fair traditionally takes place in May, with Frieze New York and NYCxDesign. Next year, it will also move locations, to Skylight Clarkson North.

“We are always looking for new ways to elevate the experience for our galleries and visitors,” says Collective Design founder Steven Learner. “By joining Armory Arts Week in March, we can expand our platform in a larger venue, engage a broader audience of art collectors, and distinguish Collective as the sole design-focused event of the week.”

“We are thrilled that Collective Design has joined the list of fairs and events taking place during Armory Arts Week in March,” says Benjamin Genocchio, executive director of The Armory Show. “There is a growing sense of optimism and enthusiasm surrounding the week since NADA joined last year, and Collective’s recent decision only further enhances this. With over a half-dozen fairs and countless openings and events happening across New York City, Armory Arts Week is the single most important week in New York for anyone interested in art and design.”

Noted collector Beth Rudin DeWoody says, “I am delighted that the Collective Design fair will be joining Armory Arts Week. Collective brings exceptional design works and sophisticated programming to a schedule that has historically been very focused on fine art. I always discover something new at Collective and look forward to seeing how this strategic move creates new opportunities for collectors, curators and the public to experience the best of both art and design.”
