Frieze New York launch their 2014 edition, on Randall’s Island Park, Manhattan next week from May 9 to 12. This will be the third outing for the fair founded by Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover in London in 2003. The fair will feature over 190 of the world’s leading contemporary galleries, with 53 participants from the fair’s host city.
Frieze New York combines the most exciting contemporary galleries from around the globe, alongside critically acclaimed Projects, Talks, Sounds and Education programs. Housed within an innovative design with natural light, and overlooking the East River, Frieze New York combines some of the best-known international galleries with emerging young spaces.
Frieze Projects at Frieze New York is curated by Cecilia Alemani and includes seven newly commissioned site-specific artworks. The artists participating this year are Darren Bader, Eduardo Basualdo, Eva Kotátková, Marie Lorenz, Koki Tanaka and Naama Tsabar. The program will also feature a special tribute to Allen Ruppersberg’s Al’s Grand Hotel, originally realized in 1971 at 7175 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles. The hotel will be restaged inside Frieze New York, in collaboration with Public Fiction and supported by COS.
Emerging galleries will take part in the Focus and Frame sections of the fair. Focus galleries are under ten years old and will show curated projects conceived for Frieze New York. The Frame section, dedicated to galleries established less than six years ago, will present solo presentations and is advised by curators Raphael Gygax and Tim Saltarelli.
