Frieze Art Fair New York is an opportunity for some of the world’s most exceptional galleries to present their works in New York. Over 180 galleries, the most for Frieze New York to date, were stationed in a temporary custom made design by SO-IL architects, on Randall’s Island for 4 days allowing for thousands of art lovers, connoisseurs, collectors and their family to see, purchase and open their eyes to the advance creativity in the art world.
The Fair offered sectors for attendees including Frame – a section dedicated to solo artist presentation; Sculpture Park – and exhibition of works by established and emerging artists; Frieze Talks – a daily bout of noteworthy lectures, panel debates and discussions; Frieze Sounds – sounds works program containing three commissioned audio pieces; and Frieze New York Education – a space sponsored by Deutsche Bank allowing public school classes and museum groups to discover the fair through workshops.
While there, it was hard to really pick and choose what I loved the most. Art, depending on who’s looking at, develops variable thoughts and emotions. Some may not even consider certain things displayed as art, but that’s what makes it so special. There was something there for the modern day person, of all backgrounds to partake in a temporary piece of the community. Some notable celebs included Valentino, Pharrell Andrew Garfield, Sara Gilbert, Natalie Portman to name a few.
Frieze New York is an international contemporary art fair launched in May 2012, after nine successful years of Frieze London.
