A spirited gathering of today's boldest artists, art enthusiasts, students, connoisseurs, and everyday fans of expression, Frieze New York is the place to be, May 14th through 17th. It's one of the most hotly anticipated things to do in NYC all year, with over 190 contemporary art galleries from around the world showcasing the modern masterpieces of more than 1,000 artists. Sculpture, photography, canvas art, mixed media, performance, installation - pieces from every form are on display beside daring new voices that defy description. Frieze is where fresh movements are born, where the greats of tomorrow are free to play today.
Projects, Talks, & Sounds
Much of the fair is divided into sections of work dedicated to 20th century artists from around the world (Spotlight), emerging galleries (Frame), and pieces created specifically for Frieze (Focus). The auditorium will also feature a dynamic array of daily keynote lectures, debates, and discussions. There are three immersive auditory experiences as well, along with a series of specially commissioned pieces unveiled here for the first time, including:
- The interactive Flux-Labyrinth collaboration - a challenging maze of interactive obstacles.
- Hi-tech, signature bleached denim massage chairs from Korakrit Arunanondchai
- Flowing "wearable art" fabrics, freely distributed to attendees by Pia Camil
- A 3-D personality test, designed by Aki Sasamoto
