This week, The Winter Show announced upcoming 2022 edition, including notable booth presentations and special activations at the fair. The 68th edition of the Show takes place April 1–10, 2022 at 660 Madison Avenue, the former flagship location of Barneys New York, following the postponement of the January show due to the surge in COVID-19 cases. Following this temporary move, The Winter Show, a benefit for East Side House Settlement, will return in 2023 to its longtime home at the Park Avenue Armory.
The 2022 edition features over 60 exhibitors across four floors of 660 Madison Avenue’s iconic building, presenting museum-quality works that span art, antiques, and design, from antiquities to contemporary art. The booths are arranged non-chronologically, allowing for a lively exchange across time periods, regions, artists, and makers. The Show includes a number of thematic presentations and specially curated displays in collaboration with notable designers.
Spend the day ~ have lunch at the cafe’ on the 2nd floor, a glass of wine at Freds on Five Wine Bar, get off your feet and relax at the second floor’s NYC&G Lounge.
In keeping with The Winter Show’s commitment to presenting works that are the highest standards of quality in the art market, every object that is presented on the Show floor is vetted for authenticity, date, and condition by a committee of more than 120 experts from the United States and Europe.
“We are thrilled that The Winter Show will once again take place in person in New York City. Although it will look slightly different from the fair we have become so familiar with, this is a true comeback story that can only happen in New York. The Success of our exhibitors is at the forefront of our decisions, and we are excited to offer such a dynamic platform at 660 Madison to showcase their works.“…… Executive Director Helen Allen.

Thanks to the hard work and collaboration of our exhibitors, supporters, and partners, including our lead sponsor Bank of America, we were able to bring together a spectacular fair to once again support and bring awareness to the incredible work of East Side House.”
