Frieze Art Fair Opens in New York

The highly-anticipated contemporary art fair Frieze New York is currently underway on Randall’s Island in Manhattan. A spin-off of Frieze London, which launched in 2003, Frieze New York includes a full roster of workshops, lectures, and satellite fairs. Now in its third year, Frieze New York features over 190 of the world’s leading contemporary art galleries, with 53 participants from the fair’s host city.

A vibrant mix of established and emerging dealers, Frieze allots two sections, Focus and Frame, to rising galleries. Focus galleries are less than ten years old and exhibit curated projects conceived specifically for Frieze New York. The Frame section, which is dedicated to galleries established less than six years ago, presents solo shows and is overseen by Berlin-based curator and art writer, Raphael Gygax, and Tim Saltarelli, who is a New York-based curator and writer. Industry heavyweights, including David Zwirner Gallery, Gagosian Gallery, and Thaddaeus Ropac, are exhibiting works by minimalist Donald Judd, Pop artist Ed Ruscha, and German painter Georg Baselitz, respectively.
