About The Armory Show

In 1994, four New York art dealers had the ambitious goal of creating a new art fair to support their artists and attract global attention. They succeeded. The result was a groundbreaking cultural moment that has become vital to the New York art market and beyond. While much has changed over the years, our ingenuity and ambition have not. The Armory Show is a galvanizing force in the art world and essential to New York’s cultural landscape.

Now in September at the Javits Center, The Armory Show will kick-off New York’s fall arts season. We have always been a gateway to New York’s art scene, hosting the world’s best galleries and linking collectors and galleries with museums and institutions across the city. And our updated timing coupled with the proximity to Chelsea and the High Line will create increased access to the city’s vibrant culture.

At our core, The Armory Show is dedicated to ensuring galleries and New York’s art community continue to thrive. We pave the way for its success and strive to be a platform in which it is easier to buy, sell and discover art.

About the ArtTable Fellowship Program

Since the year 2000, ArtTable has conducted a Fellowship Program to address the marked lack of diversity in arts employment. The Fellowship provides quality experiences and mentorship to female-identifying graduate students and emerging professionals from backgrounds generally underrepresented in the field to aid their transition from academic to professional careers. Through one-on-one mentoring relationships at select museums and cultural institutions, fellows have the opportunity to work with established leaders and gain exposure to a range of professional activities.

As the first woman to serve as director of the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, Kim Sajet (pronounced Say-et) has been exploring new ways to place personal experience and creativity at the center of learning and civic awareness. Not just a place to see famous Americans, the museum explores identity as a social construct that has been shaped in equal measure by opportunity and ability, prejudice and fear. By taking a cross-disciplinary approach that merges the traditional forms of painting, sculpture, drawing and printmaking with poetry, installation art, video and performance, Sajet aims to bring history alive.

Before her current appointment, Sajet was the president and CEO of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, the vice president and deputy director of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the director of corporate relations at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Before arriving in the United States with her family in 1997, she served first as curator and then director of two Australian art museums from 1989 – 1995.

Born in Nigeria, raised in Australia, and a citizen of the Netherlands, Sajet brings a global perspective to the position. She earned a master’s degree in art history from Bryn Mawr College, a master’s degree in business administration from Melbourne University Business School in Australia, a bachelor’s degree in art history from Melbourne University, and a graduate diploma in Museum studies from Deakin University in Australia. She has completed arts leadership training at the Harvard Business School, the Getty Institute and National Arts Strategies.

In addition to 20 years of arts management experience, Sajet has written a number of scholarly publications, curated exhibitions and spoken at academic symposia around the world. Her current interests include the June 2019 study of identity politics, role-playing in online virtual worlds and the significance of celebrity in American history. She is also the host of the Portrait Gallery’s new podcast series, “Portraits,” exploring themes of art, history and biography.

About the Speakers & Prizes

Energy Drink is a collaboration between digital artist Neon Saltwater (Abby Dougherty) and abstract painter Brian Sanchez. It creates a found and fabricated environment that transforms the mundane into a contemplative experience through color, interior design, lighting, and the elusive euphoria of vacant and transitory spaces. Neon Saltwater’s uncanny interiors become a life-size fantasy set, a minimalist stage for Brian Sanchez’s paintings and sculptures. The rich paintings use an emotive palette that responds to the lighting design and activates the pervasive loneliness buzzing between the roomscapes. Energy Drink makes abstraction tangible.

The Museum of Museums‘ mission is to increase the artist population of Seattle and inspire our local arts ecosystem through exhibition, education, and conversation about the role of the artist, philanthropist and collector. It resides in a building originally designed by NBBJ in 1946, and was formerly occupied by Swedish Hospital Women’s Health Center. The museum and gift shop pay homage to the former site in many ways, and MOM founding donors Ruth True, Barbara Malone, Alison Milliman speak to the importance of women as philanthropists and collectors in Seattle and beyond.

Greg Lundgren is an artist, curator and arts entrepreneur. He is the founder of Vital 5 Productions, Artist For a Work Free America (AFWFA), Lundgren Monuments and a member of the artist trio PDL. He co-owns The Hideout and Vito’s, and is the founder and director of Museum of Museum, a new contemporary art center in Seattle.

Jennifer Roberts is an art collector and all around extraordinary individual. She is currently on the board of On The Boards, and is a past trustee of the Henry Art Gallery and Villa Academy. She also owns Old Chaser Farm on Vashon where she manages their beautiful farm share.

Knee High Stocking Co. is a minority, female, family-owned and operated business born and bred in Seattle, WA. Sisters/Partners: Pamela C. and Michelle V. have served up Prohibition-era cocktails and house-made shrubs, plus a menu of Filipino-inspired American food since 2017.

Menu Options:

  • Plate (Vegetarian Option Available)
    • Lumpia (select Beef, Pork, Beyond meat)
    • Asian Chicken Drummettes
    • Potatas bravas
      • +homemade sauces

ArtTable’s Annual Leadership Series is dedicated to convening top voices in the arts to deeply explore the most pressing issues of our time.

These inspirational visionaries will share their perspectives on systemic inequity and racism in the art world—as reflected in leadership roles, salary structure, fundraising priorities, and beyond—and discuss the meaningful changes they are spearheading to move the field toward equity and inclusion. 

ArtTable’s Annual Leadership Series presents a public forum featuring a distinguished roster of artists, change-makers, and leaders in our field to discuss relevant and emerging issues for those working in arts and culture. In the past, our speakers have included Thelma Golden, Christy Maclear, Monica O. Montgomery, Anne Pasternak, and many more.

Sandra Jackson Dumont, by Rebecca SchearAbout Sandra Jackson-Dumont

Sandra Jackson-Dumont joined the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art as director and CEO in January 2020. Tasked with leading the institution through its opening and beyond, Jackson-Dumont came to the Lucas Museum from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she served as the Frederick P. and Sandra P. Rose Chairman of Education from 2014 to 2019.

At the Lucas Museum, Jackson-Dumont oversees wide-ranging programming and operational teams and will manage a staff of more than 230 by the time the museum opens. She leads the curatorial, museum experience, education, and collections management teams in exploring the extensive collection and developing exhibitions and programs for the museum’s extensive gallery and classroom spaces. The Lucas Museum broke ground in March 2018 in Los Angeles’s Exposition Park, and Jackson-Dumont also works with the architecture and construction teams to bring architect Ma Yansong’s vision for the 11-acre campus and 300,000-square-foot building to life. Jackson-Dumont reports to the Lucas Museum’s board of directors.

Throughout her career, Jackson-Dumont has developed programming around museum collections and special exhibitions to engage a broad range of audiences, from school-age children and their teachers to artists and scholars. At The Met, Jackson-Dumont conceived of and managed an array of dynamic public programs, community engagement and academic initiatives, and live arts performances for diverse audiences. Jackson-Dumont also served for eight years as the deputy director for education and public programs and adjunct curator of modern and contemporary art at the Seattle Art Museum (SAM). There, she oversaw educational public programs, interpretive technology, and community affairs across the museum’s three venues, as well as organized significant exhibitions and collaborative projects on the work of Theaster Gates, Titus Kaphar, LaToya Ruby Frazier, and Sondra Perry, among others. Prior to that, Jackson-Dumont held positions at the Studio Museum in Harlem and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among other cultural organizations.

Known for her ability to blur the lines between academia, popular culture, and non-traditional art-going communities, Jackson-Dumont is invested in curating experiences that foster dynamic exchanges between art/artists, past/present, public/private, and people/places. She has organized numerous exhibitions, lectures, performances, symposia, and education initiatives and has contributed essays to a host of publications and worked with numerous artists.

About Suzy Delvalle

Susan (Suzy) Delvalle is a fierce advocate for art and artists. With over 20 years of leadership experience in the cultural sector, she has committed her career to enhancing the impact of mission-based organizations and building opportunity and equity in the arts. She most recently served as President and Executive Director of Creative Capital, an innovative arts nonprofit that adapts venture philanthropy concepts to support individual artists.
