The Winter Show announced last month that it had to postpone its planned January 21-30 event at the Park Avenue Armory “due to the recent surge of Covid-19 cases in New York City and the high transmissibility of the Omicron variant”.
However, it has now secured a new venue at the former Barneys New York building.
The opening night will take place on March 31 and the fair will run from April 1–10, featuring 62 dealers in booths across four floors of the building.
Helen Allen, The Winter Show executive director, said: “Although it will look slightly different from the fair we have become so familiar with, this is a true comeback story that can only happen in New York. The success of our exhibitors is at the forefront of our decisions, and we are excited to offer such a dynamic platform at 660 Madison to showcase their works.”
Daniel Dienst, executive vice chairman at Authentic Brands Group (ABG), owner of Barneys New York, agreed the deal with The Winter Show.
The Winter Show, organised and run for the charity East Side House, will return in 2023 to its long-time home at the Park Avenue Armory.
Book fair returns
The New York International Antiquarian Book Fair (NYIABF), supported by Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America (ABAA) and International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) and managed by Sanford L Smith + Associates, returns to the Park Avenue Armory on April 21-24.
Nearly 200 exhibitors from 14 countries will stand at the 62nd edition of the event including 19 new exhibitors.
