Frieze New York 2018
May 4 – 6, 2018
Randall’s Island Park, New York
Featuring more than 190 galleries from 30 countries, the seventh edition of Frieze has announced its 2018 exhibitors and programming. Returning to Randall’s Island, the fair will showcase the world’s most significant artists and galleries as well as expanded programming under the helm of newly-appointed Artistic Director Loring Randolph.
Live, a platform for performances, installations, and interactive projects curated by Adrienne Edwards will debut throughout the fair. The Frieze Artist Award, an international open call for emerging artists (also curated by Edwards), will debut as well.
The fair’s first-ever themed section, curated by Matthew Higgs, will pay homage to Feature Inc., a Hudson gallery which supported the careers of pioneering artists such as Tom of Finland and Richard Prince in the 80s and 90s.
Another new feature is Allied Editions, a collective of non-profit institutions offering visitors the opportunity to purchase affordable artworks by prominent artists. Artists Space, CCS Bard, SculptureCenter and Triple Canopy (all New York) will partner with Camden Art Centre, ICA, Whitechapel Gallery and Studio Voltaire (all London) to present specially commissioned works by international artists from as little as $120.
