The Winter Show 2020 Partners with Hispanic Society Museum & Library on Exhibit

This January 24 through February 2, 2020, The Winter Show will be taking place at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. This season, the show has announced a 2020 loan exhibition titled Unrivaled, done in partnership with the Hispanic Society Museum & Library.

The Winter Show is a leading art, antiques, and design fair that brings together 70 of the world’s top experts in the fine and decorative arts. The annual New York event is also an annual benefit for East Side House Settlement, an organization that serves the local Bronx and Northern Manhattan community through its focus on education and technology opportunities.

The Hispanic Society Museum & Library works to “collect, preserve, study, exhibit, stimulate appreciation for, and advance knowledge of works directly related to the arts, literature, and history of the countries wherein Spanish and Portuguese are or have been predominant spoken languages, all in the service of the public and in accordance with the highest professional standards,” according to the organization’s mission statement.

Through the groups’ exciting new collaborative exhibition, curated by acclaimed architect Peter Marino and art historian/curator Philippe de Montebello, will feature masterworks from across the Hispanic world, including the Iberian Peninsula, Latin America, and the Philippines.
