Kyla McMillan has been tapped as the new director of New York art fair the Armory Show. The appointment was announced by Frieze, after the company acquired the art fair last year.

McMillan will begin this week and replace Nicole Berry, who stepped down from the position in March.

Before joining the Armory, McMillan served as a director at David Zwirner for a year, after leaving her four-year role helming Gavin Brown’s Enterprise. Recently, she founded Saint George Projects, a gallery and consultancy company, where she mounted exhibitions of artists like Alvaro Barrington and Henri Paul Broyard.

‘My goal is to empower collectors and emphasize the fair’s role as a platform for artists, galleries and art enthusiasts,’ McMillan says in a statement. ‘The Armory Show has long been celebrated as a foundational fair for New York and the US art market. I look forward to building on The Armory Show’s achievements, while also championing new voices and creating opportunities for diverse perspectives in contemporary art.’

This year’s Armory Show takes place from 5 to 8 September at New York’s Javits Center.
