Frieze New York presents the most forward-thinking galleries from around the globe, bringing an international focus to the dynamic contemporary art scene in New York. The second edition takes place in New York’s Randall’s Island Park from May 10–13, 2013. Designed by SO – IL architects, Frieze New York is held in a unique bespoke structure overlooking the East River. For the second year, Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank.
World’s Leading Galleries
Frieze is pleased to present a careful selection of over 180 of the world’s leading contemporary art galleries. A strong contingent of US galleries is particularly in evidence, with 55 participating galleries from the fair’s host city. Galleries from the following 32 countries will show at Frieze New York 2013: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Turkey, UAE, UK and USA.
Emerging galleries will be participating in the Focus and Frame sections of the fair. Focus is for galleries less than ten years old debuting works previously unseen in an art-fair context. Focus galleries will show curated projects or solo stands conceived for Frieze New York. Frame is a section dedicated to galleries established less than six years ago and, this year, is supported by Joe Fresh. The Frame galleries selection is made on the basis of a proposed solo presentation and has been advised by curators Rodrigo Moura and Tim Saltarelli.
Frieze Projects New York
The program includes seven specially commissioned projects. The participating artists have been invited to conceive site-specific works that either react to the exceptional location of Randall’s Island or engage with the experience of the fair. The Frieze Projects program is realized annually at Frieze New York and is curated by Cecilia Alemani.
The five artists participating in the Frieze Projects program this year are: Liz Glynn, Maria Loboda, Mateo Tannatt, Andra Ursuta and Marianne Vitale. The program will also feature a special tribute to legendary artist-run restaurant FOOD, originally conceived by Gordon Matta-Clark and Carol Goodden in 1971. With a menu that changes daily, the artists chefs at FOOD 1971/2013 are: Matthew Day Jackson, Carol Goodden, Tina Girouard and Jonathan Horowitz. The Frieze Projects program also features a literary project, Frieze Story, this year with an original text by novelist Ben Marcus.
Interviews with all the commissioned artists, plus a special homage to FOOD as a continuing source of inspiration, appear in the Frieze New York Catalogue, which is available to purchase at the fair, and via frieze.com, and is priced: $39.95 / £24.95
