TEFAF New York

With an increasing success of TEFAF Maastricht, since its creation in 1988 in the Netherlands, TEFAF is widely seen as the world’s most important art fair in terms of quality. TEFAF New York was founded in early 2016, originally as two annual art fairs in New York at the Park Avenue Armory—TEFAF New York Fall and TEFAF New York Spring. Today, TEFAF New York is one singular, annual fair that encapsulates modern and contemporary art, jewelry, antiques, and design, featuring around 90 leading exhibitors from around the globe. Tom Postma Design, celebrated for its innovative work with leading museums, galleries, and art fairs, has developed designs for the fair that interplay with the spectacular spaces while giving them a lighter, contemporary look and feel. Exhibitor stands will flow throughout the Armory’s landmark building encompassing the Wade Thompson Drill Hall and extending to both the first and second floors of the Armory’s period rooms, creating a fair of unprecedented depth and impact in New York City.
