New York, NY 10001

Frieze New York will take place from May 17th to 21st, 2023 at The Shed on 30th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues. Led for the second year by Christine Messineo, Frieze director of Americas, the fair will bring together over 60 leading galleries spanning 27 countries, including 33 located in New York. The fair is supported by Deutsche Bank, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary as global lead partner with Frieze, continuing a shared commitment to artistic excellence.

“As a global art fair, Frieze New York brings extraordinary galleries and artists from North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa,” says Messineo. “New York City is the undisputed center of the art market, and as such art lovers and collectors will be able to immerse themselves in the international perspectives that the fair brings to the city.”

The fair will include an abundance of solo presentations, including David Kordansky’s presentation of work by Lauren Halsey, including a new suite of digital collages and gypsum-based engravings. These works reflect the artist’s commitment to South Central Los Angeles, simultaneously incubators of funkadelic dreams and futures, but also full of the concrete textures, materials, and iconographies of her community.

Gallery Hyundai will also display a solo presentation of works by Yoo Geun-Taek, a virtuoso artist who bridges the East Asian tradition of ink and color painting on hanji (Korean traditional paper) with contemporary aesthetics. The artist expands this artistic genre into subjects of nature, the environment, and society to craft a singular experimental practice.

Furthermore, Sprüth Magers and Karma International’s joint presentation of Pamela Rosenkranz’s work coincides with her recent commission on the nearby High Line Plinth. Her work involves sculptures, paintings, videos and installations that reflect on the human need to anthropomorphize our surroundings in order to understand them. In doing so, she investigates the codes through which people give meaning to the natural world.

Participating galleries will also curate a number of shows that bring together artists exploring topical issues and debates. Dastan Gallery will show works by five pioneering Iranian women artists: the renowned late painters Behjat Sadr and Farideh Lashai, alongside contemporary painter Farah Ossouli, multi-disciplinary artist Bita Fayyazi, and photographer Newsha Tavakolian.

In addition, Michael Rosenfeld Gallery will show a group exhibition focused on the legacy of Roe v. Wade. Fifty years after the US Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution conferred the right to an abortion, the exhibition will feature an interdisciplinary selection of works created in 1973 by a diverse roster of women artists. Highlights will include works by Magdalena Abakanowicz, Claire Zeisler, and Hannelore Baron, among others. Created at a time of social and political change, works on view will provide a snapshot of the era’s cultural ethos while taking on new valences in the wake of the case’s overruling this year.

Frieze New York will also feature Focus, a section dedicated to emerging galleries aged 12 years and under. A highlight of Focus will be Tiwani Contemporary’s presentation of new paintings, projection and soundscape by Emma Prempeh, a London-based, British artist with Ghanaian and Vincentian heritage. Prempeh’s recent body of works explore interior spaces pictorially colliding with aspects of her personal history.

Additionally, Daniel Faria Gallery’s Focus booth will show a new series of sculptures by June Clark. Born in Harlem in 1941, Clark emigrated to Canada in the late 1960s due to political turbulence in the United States. In her work, she is able to simultaneously depict the America of her childhood imagination and the inherent injustices, inequalities and violence on which the country was formed.

Among the programming is the recognition of Jessica Vaughn, the recipient of the inaugural Frieze Artadia Prize. Launched in partnership with the celebrated national non-profit Artadia, the prize initiative provides a New York-based artist with the opportunity to realize a major new work at Frieze New York. Titled “The Internet of Things”, Vaughn’s commission draws on the US postal system to spotlight the organizational structures that underlie late-stage capitalism.

In addition to the new prize, Frieze New York will highlight Artadia as an emblematic non-profit organization by dedicating a wall on the second level of The Shed for a large-scale visual representation of its history and legacy of supporting artists since 1999. Executed in collaboration with artist Katy Fischer (2004 Chicago Awardee), the visual timeline will feature the nearly 400 artists the organization has supported over the past two decades.

Artist Plate Project will also launch their new series of over 40 limited-edition plates designed by world renowned artists, including Virgil Abloh, Rashid Johnson, Takashi Murakami, and Amy Sherald. Frieze New York will mark the first opportunity to purchase the new series, with 75 plates from each edition of 250 reserved for Frieze visitors, which will be on sale on Level 2.

Finally, Printed Matter, Inc. will return to Frieze New York with a broad and exciting presentation of artists’ books, editions, and ephemera in the Level 1 bookshop area. Printed Matter will represent a full range of artists’ publishing, from zines and small press publications, to rare and out of print material and exhibition catalogs. The pop-up will also feature a selection of books published by galleries participating in the fair, plus special signing events with these artists.
