The Armory Show has shared images of the large-scale works that will show in the New York fair's Platform section this year.
This year's theme is Can you hear the fault lines breathing? Curated by Claudia Schmuckli, Curator-in-Charge of Contemporary Art and Programming at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the section features works that aim to bridge societal, historical and geographical divisions.
'In a world in the grip of climate change and haunted by biological and social viruses that are decimating populations and dividing societies, this year's Platform seeks to capture the breadth of the fault lines that currently define our experience of existence,' Schmuckli said.
'I hope the works featured in Platform offer strategies of overcoming and healing that provoke dialogue about new models of care for the self, each other and the planet we call home,' she said.
The Armory Show will take place at its new home in the Javits Center, 15 blocks or so south of its former home on Piers 92 and 94, from 9 to 12 September.
