Taking place from 5-8 March, the curated section of The Armory Show on Pier 94 highlights the gallery and artistic landscape of a chosen geographic region. For the sixth Focus edition in 2015, Omar Kholeif, Curator at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, will curate Armory Focus: Middle East, North Africa, and the Mediterranean (“Focus: MENAM”). Examining contemporary cultural and artistic practice from this dynamic part of the world, Focus: MENAM will present an exciting selection of gallery presentations as well as not-for-profit institutions, site-specific projects, and a dedicated symposium. Istanbul based galleries Galerist (Nil Yalter), NON (Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Meriç Algün Ringborg) and Pi Artworks (Susan Hefuna) are part of the section.
