Next month the Madison Ancient and Tribal Art show will return for its sixth consecutive year in the space at 1016 Madison Avenue famously occupied for forty-three years by the Perls Gallery. Located just blocks from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this show has served as an annual focal point in New York for the arts of Africa, Oceania, Indonesia, and the ancient Americas. Both local and international, this year’s participating dealers are still being determined but include James Stephenson from Brooklyn, Marc Assayag from Montreal, Kellim Brown from Brussels, and Peter Boyd from Seattle. The show also incorporate permanent galleries in other nearby locations that will stage special exhibitions. This year’s MATA show opens May 12, 2017, and will be open to the public free of charge until May 14. Other dealers permanently in Upper Manhattan – including Tambaran Gallery and John Molloy Gallery on the east side and Jacaranda on the west — are also well worth a visit.
