The Armory Show announced today the Presents Booth Prize, a new initiative recognizing an outstanding and innovative gallery presentation within the Presents section of the fair. The Presents Booth Prize is generously supported in its inaugural year by Athena Art Finance. Presents brings together the most exciting young galleries from around the world, showcasing new work by emerging artists through solo-artist and dual-artist presentations.

The winner of the inaugural prize will be selected by an international jury of curators and collectors during the 2017 fair and awarded a prize of $10,000. “Promoting young galleries and nurturing their growth is central to The Armory Show’s new vision,” says Benjamin Genocchio, Executive Director of The Armory Show.

“This initiative came out of conversations we had with galleries around the world who expressed the need for greater financial support in participating. We want to help make it possible for them to do the fair and we are thrilled to offer this prize, which will help cover a gallery’s cost of participation, in partnership with Athena Art Finance.”

Members of the Presents Booth Prize Jury:

  • Renee Drake, collector, the Netherlands
  • Massimiliano Gioni, Artistic Director, New Museum, New York
  • Ruba Katrib, Curator, SculptureCenter, Long Island City
  • Alain Servais, collector, Brussels
  • Carole Server, collector, New York

The Presents section has continued to expand in size each year since its introduction in 2014. The Presents section received a record number of applications this year and will increase its number of exhibiting galleries from 22 in 2016 to 31 for 2017.

As part of The Armory Show’s new vision of fostering young galleries and staging ambitious projects, the Presents Advisory Panel was established to oversee and guide the direction of this growing section of the fair. Panel members are: Augusto Arbizo, 11R, New York; Philippe Charpentier, mor charpentier, Paris; and Jessica Silverman, Jessica Silverman Gallery, San Francisco.

“As a company we support the art market through financing solutions. We are pleased to give back to the community in partnership with The Armory Show through sponsoring the Armory’s-first-ever-Booth Prize for young galleries. It is an expression of our commitment to strengthening the landscape of galleries globally,’’ says Andrea Danese, Chief Executive Officer of Athena Art Finance.

Athena Art Finance, a New York-based global specialty art lender, will be joining The Armory Show as a lead sponsor for the second consecutive year. Athena’s support for the Presents Booth Prize marks an expanded partnership with the fair and the first ever prize for exhibiting galleries in The Armory Show’s history.

PHASE 2 ANNOUNCE! The 9th Annual Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival



BEMF’s goal is to showcase the music and creative community intertwined with Brooklyn’s electronic music scene, and highlight its place in the global community. The ever changing milieu of Brooklyn, the influence it wields given its place in one of the world’s most exciting and dynamic major cities and the rapidly changing landscape of American dance music, provide BEMF a unique position to foster a dialogue around dance music that extends beyond any dancefloor or Borough delineation.

2016 offers unique collaborations and partnerships including a continued media partnership with THUMP, a Deviation showcase with label head and BBC Radio host Benji B, parties from NYC promoters Bunker and more.

BEMF’s venue partners include some of the Borough’s most reputable spaces, including Output, Analog BKNY, Good Room, The Knockdown Center, Trans-Pecos and Music Hall of Williamsburg.

As a continuation of our cross-medium, culturally entrenched programming BEMF has created the TRANSFERENCE series in collaboration with Sam Hillmer and RVNG at The Knockdown Center. New this year, TRANSFERENCE offers three nights of electronic music fused with visual arts practice with uniquely choreographed, audio-visual experiences like Airport Music for Black Folks featuring NON Record’s Chino Amobi choreographed by Richard Kennedy, Diamond Terrifier Cipher with Don Devore and Michael Beharie, Breadwoman with Anna Homler & Jorge Martin, plus standalone performances by RAMZi, Gobby, Greg Fox, DJ’s Nina and Nicely, Suzi Analogue/VHVL, Ben Vida, and Tristan Perich.

Halloween Story: Last minute costume shortcuts

Reusing Halloween costumes or pieces that have been tucked away for some time might need a quick dewrinkle job. Instead of wasting time filling your iron with water, waiting for it to heat up, and then the process of actually ironing your items. You can simply use Downy Wrinkle Releaser and spray your costume, wait a couple minutes which gives you time to finish your accessories or make up, and it will be done!product-family

Eliminating creases in clothing used to require heating cast iron over a fire. Then technology advanced and today irons have settings for steaming and even cool pressing fabrics. But, the time has come to ditch this outdated appliance altogether. The new and improved Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus makes releasing wrinkles from fabric as easy as delivering a renewing spritz of the fabric-relaxing spray. It is the new iron.

bottle-lgDowny Wrinkle Releaser Plus works to eliminate wrinkles by coating fabric fibers with silicone that allows them to relax and slide apart instead of being frozen in a crease. Simply spray, tug, smooth and hang, then allow fabric to dry for a crisp, fresh smelling and wrinkle-free look in minutes. Taking time out a busy work and family schedule to visit the dry cleaner or set up an ironing board to press a laundry basket full of crinkled garments is no longer necessary. In a pinch, Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus can be spritzed on clothes while running out the door for a wrinkle free look by the time the office door is reached.

In addition to its ability to reduce wrinkles in clothes, Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus can be used as a quick-fix solution to remove creases from pillowcases, bed sheets, drapery, tablecloths, cloth napkins, ribbons on holiday decorations and many other household items. A quick spritz from Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus can also remove odors and freshen up furniture, pet beds and infant car seats just to name a few. For those who still want to iron, it serves as a better ironing aid than water without the residue of starch. And in a fashion emergency, Downy Wrinkle Release Plus can even save the day by eliminating static cling.

Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is sold at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Kroger, Publix and many other grocery, drug, and mass retailers. Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is sold in a 1-liter bottle for $6.99 and a 500 mL bottle for $4.19. It is also available in a travel-friendly 3-ounce size for $1.99.
