PREMIERE: ART21 @ The Armory Show
This event includes a cocktail reception and 1-hour film premiere

ART21's new film, ART21 @ The Armory Show, features exclusive interviews with Philip Tinari, curator of this year’s Armory Focus: China, along with ART21-produced profiles of three Chinese artists whose works have had significant impact and attention internationally: Ai Weiwei, Cai Guo-Qiang, and Cao Fei. Tinari’s insights on the development of contemporary art in China provide a foundation for his selection of artists for Armory Focus: China, including The Armory Show 2014 Commissioned Artist, Xu Zhen. ART21’s film offers context for the selection of contemporary Chinese artists visitors will encounter at the fair, and is the perfect kick-off event for Armory Week.
