The NY Armory Arts Week is being held March 3 - 6, 2011 at Piers 92 & 94, Twelfth Avenue and 55th Street, New York City. Armory Arts Week is the umbrella for nine Art Fairs featuring special must-see events that range from special receptions, open studios, art tours, museum discounts and performances to panels and artist discussions -- and, of course, parties.
The Armory Show, America's leading fine art fair, has been devoted to the most important art of the 20th and 21st centuries. From its beginnings as the annual celebration of graphic arts, the idea of a week of arts-related events made sense in a city that has always attracted artists, galleries, collectors, critics and curators from all over the world.

One of New York’s most popular fairs returns with Sanford L. Smith & Associates’ 19th Annual Outsider Art Fair, being held February 11 - 13, 2011 at 7 W. 34th Street, near Fifth Avenue, in New York City.
The Fair began 19 years ago, showcasing an otherwise unrecognized market at that time. Since then, this event has brought international attention to art created outside of mainstream society — visionary, primitive, self-taught, and intuitive in nature.

FIAR México 2011 will host its first edition in Mexico City from April 5th to 10th, 2011.
FIAR will feature approximately 50 top quality international galleries from Mexico and abroad that will exhibit modern and contemporary art and design. The fair will be held at Campo Marte, a beautiful space located in the center of the city in Paseo de la Reforma, walking distance to the city´s most important museums and cultural institutions, thus creating a social-cultural corridor.
FIAR México 2011 offers a platform where established galleries and their artists can display their work along rising stars from places that have exploded into the art scene relatively recently, or are still waiting to be discovered.
The fair will count with the participation of more than 200 artists from different parts of the world and a special parallel program – urban projects (sculpture, installation, intervention) and photography exhibition in Paseo de la Reforma Boulevard - will make up a spectacular event.
It has also established sponsoring arrangements with some of Mexico’s biggest businesses as well as the Mexican Ministry of Culture and the Government of Mexico City.
