From May 5 – 7, art lovers in NYC flocked to Randall’s Island for the sixth edition of Frieze New YorkThe Untitled Magazine paid a visit to the fair and scoped out the best and brightest in contemporary art. Check out our exclusive gallery above and read on for more information about this year’s Frieze.

Although it has downsized from four days to three, Frieze is still jam-packed – with more than two-hundred galleries from thirty-one different countries. On May 5th, this year’s fair debuted a major symposium in collaboration with the Getty and the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU. The event raised a discussion on topics related to Latin American and Latino Art.

Like many recent artistically minded events – Frieze  responded to the current state of the world by highlighting feminist art and work with political overtones. Many participating galleries featured women artists from the 20th and 21st centuries. Simone Subal Gallery (New York) showcased the Austrian American pioneer of feminist Pop Art, Kiki Kogelnik (1935-1997); Bridget Donahue (New York) presented a solo exhibition by Susan Cianciolo (it coincided with the artist’s participation in the Whitney Biennial) ; and The Third Line (Dubai) presented a solo stand of work by Iranian artist Farhad Moshiri that explored the common ground between Iran and the West. Other galleries considered the role of art in times of unrest.

Special commissions at Frieze focused on the theme of voyeurism – an apt choice in our age of constant surveillance and social media stalking. Of the choice in theme, curator Cecelia Alemani said, “There isn’t a better place than the fair to look at people and art—and to be looked at in return. This year’s projects make us aware of this dynamic, revealing the tension between exhibitionism and voyeurism.”
