Forbes Lifestyle 2 weeks ago

Now in its fourth year, the TEFAF New York Fall art fair is in the position where tradition serves an important role and the opening night fundraising gala (which actually pre-dates TEFAF New York) has become a signature of the annual show.

“The Opening Night of TEFAF New York Fall,” will be held October 31 (Friday), from 5 – 8 p.m. at the Park Avenue Armory. It provides the first chance to view and purchase the objects of the 90 exhibitors, including 16 new participants, at the fair while providing support for the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The annual VIP preview is hosted by The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering. It attracts New York’s most notable collectors, philanthropists, fashion and design leaders, and celebrities. It is the largest fundraiser for the organization and the money raised provides assistance for a range of enhancements to MSK’s patient care and research programs.

For newly appointed Society of MSK President, Kate Allen, it will be the first TEFAF New York where she is serving in this role. Other Society of MSK co-chairs are Nina Carbone, Fiona Druckenmiller, George Farias, Libby Fitzgerald, Jennifer James, Lisa McCarthy, Betsy Pitts and Alex Papachristidis.

The party is being held on Halloween night so there’s no telling what kind of scary surprises will be in store. To purchase advance sale tickets online, follow this link

For the first time, the historic works that make up the core of TEFAF New York Fall will be complemented by works from modern and contemporary dealers in unique booth collaborations, set in select historic rooms of the Armory. These collaborations will provide a mix of exhibitors, specializing in historic and contemporary works, together in the same space in order to showcase the influence various eras have on each other throughout the art historical canon.

 “The breadth of this fair is even greater this year with the addition of some exciting new exhibitors, alongside an already eminent roster of specialists, all of whom represent the top of their fields in quality and taste,” said Sofie Scheerlinck, managing director of TEFAF New York.
