Frieze Art Fair 2017 New York
Again that time to check some of the greatest art
We were happily invited to view Frieze Art Fair NY 2017 on Randall’s Island Park one year more.
Its the sixth edition running from May 4th to the 7th, featuring some of the most prestigious contemporary art galleries and artists besides 20th-century art as well. Yet again there was a curated sections showcasing emerging artists, site-specific artist commissions and talks series.
It is always a pleasure to visit Frieze New York 2017 with its light-filled structure designed to like an art show in a gallery or museum, therefore taking away the boxed art fair experience.
It offered an immersive cultural experience for major institutional and private collectors, scholars and art enthusiasts alike, with all kind of art coming from the six continents, including first time exhibitors from Brazil, Guatemala, Japan and Poland.
Organized by Victoria Siddall (Director, Frieze Art Fairs) alongside Artistic Directors Abby Bangser and Jo Stella-Sawicka, Frieze New York is further strengthened by a team of international independent curators. Toby Kamps (The Menil Collection, Houston) will curate the expanded Spotlight section for the first time; Cecilia Alemani (High Line Art, New York / Italian Pavilion 2017 Venice Biennale) will commission Frieze Projects; and Jacob Proctor (Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, University of Chicago) and Fabian Schöneich (Portikus, Frankfurt) will advise the Frame section. Tom Eccles (Bard College, New York) also returns as curator of Frieze Talks, bringing together leading cultural figures including Shuddhabrata Sengupta of Raqs Media Collective, poet Claudia Rankine and MoMA’s Ann Temkin to deepen discussion of the themes of activism and influences of modernism also seen across the fair.
We leave you with a selection of pictures we hope you enjoy.
