Paul Morris, Director and co-founder of The Armory Show, steps down after 18 years. The fair began as the Gramercy International Art Fair in 1994, renamed after relocating to the 69th Regiment Armory in 1999. Morris co-founded the fair with Matthew Marks, Colin de Land and Pat Hearn; after the deaths of the latter two, he sold the fair in 2007 to Merchandise Mart Properties Inc., took on the role as vice president, and closed his own gallery. Morris cited personal reasons as the cause for his departure. The next Armory Show takes place from March 7-10th, 2013.
