TEFAF Reveals Roster of Exhibitors for Inaugural New York Fair

Can the renowned fair compete in Gotham?

The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) has announced the lineup of exhibitors at its debut New York outing, to be organized in collaboration with ArtVest Partners. Major Old Masters and antiquities dealers such as Colnaghi (London and Madrid), Dickinson (London and New York), and Talabardon & Gautier (Paris) will bring their wares.

Slated to take place at Park Avenue Armory from October 21–October 26, 2016, TEFAF’s first New York outing will feature 93 international dealers of art, design, furniture, and jewelry. Exhibitors will appear throughout not only the Armory’s huge central hall, but also in the venue’s first- and second-floor period rooms.

The renowned fair announced its expansion in February, stating that it would grow not only to a new venue outside of Maastricht, the Netherlands, where it has held its annual fair for four decades, but also would deepen its emphasis on modern and contemporary art. It had been testing the contemporary-art waters with guest-curated displays in 2015 and in 2016.

TEFAF has at times managed to get major contemporary-art players to sign on as exhibitors. The now-defunct Haunch of Venison showed there in 2008, as did Hauser & Wirth in 2009 and Gagosian in 2013, but the marriages were short-lived.

In May, when the fair will host a second, more contemporary-focused New York edition (the former Spring Masters), we’ll see whether there was anything to speculation that TEFAF’s Upper East Side location might entice major contemporary dealers away from Frieze New York, which happens at the same time on Randall’s Island.
