Preview and party to benefit The Museum of Modern Art.


The Armory Show is New York’s foremost fair devoted to the most important art of the 20th and 21st centuries. In 2015, the fair will again feature The Armory Show – Modern, a section specializing in modern and secondary market material on Pier 92, while Pier 94 will continue to be a venue to premiere new works by living artists. The opening preview and party for The Armory Show 2015 helps sustain the world-renowned exhibition programming of The Museum of Modern Art.


The 2016 Commissioned Artist is Kapwani Kiwanga, appointed by the Focus curators, Julia Grosse and Yvette Mutumba, and The Armory Show. The Armory Show launched its distinguished Artist Commission in 2002, extending its commitment to supporting artists' development by providing a global stage for their work. In this capacity, Kiwanga will inform the visual identity of the fair by contributing to the design of the official fair Catalogue, realizing an on-site commissioned project and producing a limited edition artwork with proceeds benefitting The Museum of Modern Art in New York.


Born 1978 in Hamilton, Ontario and based in Paris, Kiwanga has a versatile practice that often takes shape through video, sound and performance, relying on ephemera and collective history to form the bases of her approach. As a trained anthropologist and social scientist, she occupies the role of a researcher in her projects. Her methodology includes assembling narratives and establishing protocols, to observe culture and its characteristic propensity toward mutation, sometimes intentionally confusing truth and fiction in order to unsettle hegemonic narratives where marginal discourse can flourish. Afrofuturism, the anti-colonial struggle, collective memory, belief systems, vernacular and popular culture are but some of the research areas that inspire her practice.


In her films, installations and performances, which revolve around notions of belief and its relationship to "knowledge," Kiwanga employs documentary modes of representation, various material sources, and testimonies in a quasi-scientific approach. She is interested in different approaches to the role of artist, explored most notably in her Afrogalactica trilogy project (2011 - ongoing), for which she has invented and occupies the character of an anthropologist from the future who explores across vast fields of knowledge relating to Afrofuturism, hybrid genders and African astronomy.


The fair introduced its annual commission in 2002, and four years later began publishing an annual series of editions by its commissioned artists to benefit The Museum of Modern Art.
