Washing up on American shores for the first time, the Frieze team are pitching for a slot in the New York art market. The art fair that gave London’s contemporary art scene a festival buzz has brought the same showmanship state-side by pitching a luminous white tent in Randall’s Island Park, Manhattan and building a sculpture park by the East river.
With art from over 170 galleries – 60 of which are American -and focusing on work from international living artists, established and emerging, Frieze New York is a visual and aural art feast. Cecilia Alemani curates the programme and the Frieze special projects featuring artists such as Uri Aran and Virginia Overton are sure to be spectacular’s not to be missed.
With all art eyes already on NYC following the record-breaking £74m sale of Munch’s The Scream, Frieze New York can’t fail to be an inclusive event, with something for everyone.
Frieze New York runs from 4–7 May 2012.
