Just over a week before the Armory international art show was due to open in Manhattan, a city inspection has revealed that one of the two West Side piers that house the event is structurally unsound.
Organizers of the high-profile art fair, set to open on March 7, have decided to relocate most of its exhibitors from damaged Pier 92 to nearby Pier 90, where the show’s sister art fair, Volta, had been scheduled to run concurrently.
The Volta fair has been canceled for 2019, its organizers said.
“We all agreed that presenting the New York 2019 edition in an extremely modified status would be a disservice to our galleries, the artists or the visitors,” Amanda Coulson, Volta’s artistic director, said in a statement. All exhibitors will be reimbursed, she said.
“It’s been quite heartbreaking for us as well as for the galleries” that planned to exhibit at Volta, Ms. Coulson said in an interview. “It takes a good six months to plan for a fair at minimum,” she said. “Eleven days is just not enough time to produce another fair.”
The Armory Show, one of New York’s leading art fairs, drew an estimated 65,000 visitors last year and showed work from 31 countries, according to organizers. Volta began in 2008 as a platform for emerging artists and now attracts 15,000 visitors, Ms. Coulson said. Pieces from the two fairs sold last year for prices ranging from ,000 to 0,000 for a painting by Cuban-American artist Carmen Herrera, ARTnews reported.
The pier inspection was carried out by the New York City Economic Development Corporation, which is charged with inspecting publicly and privately owned piers.
“Following a routine inspection, we discovered structural issues at Pier 92,” the corporation spokesman Christopher Singleton said in a statement. “Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to relocate any activity to Pier 90 while we conduct further analysis at the site.”
New York City’s piers have experienced a renaissance in recent years as the dilapidated structures, once the heart of the city’s industrial commerce, have transformed into public parks, restaurant hubs and event spaces.
But as old piers have taken on new lives, their structural integrity after years of disuse has proved problematic.
Five years ago, an engineering firm report revealed that 57 percent of the 3,500 steel pilings in Hudson River Park’s Pier 40 had severely deteriorated, putting the structure in danger of collapsing into the Hudson River.
When park officials’ yearslong attempts to generate funds to repair the pier fell short, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo stepped in to strike a deal with park officials and a developer to transfer unused development rights and subsequently infuse 0 million to repair the pilings. After two years of fraught negotiations, the City Council approved the deal.
Last year, a routine inspection of Pier 36 on the Lower East Side revealed structural damage, compelling organizers of Bike Expo New York, one of the largest bike shows on the East Coast, to move the show to Red Hook, Brooklyn.
The executive director of the Armory Show, Nicole Berry, said that in the new setup, Pier 90 will be accessible by a covered walkway or a one-minute shuttle that will run continuously during the fair.
“Unfortunately, this situation is beyond our control,” Ms. Berry said in a statement. “Our chief priority is the safety of the exhibitors, visitors and artworks exhibited.”B:
