The fifth edition of Frieze New York returns to Randall’s Island Park, Manhattan from May 5–8, 2016. In a bespoke structure designed for the experience of art, more than 200 international galleries will bring together the world’s most exciting emerging and established contemporary artists. Independent curators Cecilia Alemani (High Line Art, New York), Clara M Kim (Tate Modern, London), Jacob Proctor (Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society at the University of Chicago), Fabian Schöneich (Portikus, Frankfurt) and Tom Eccles (Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, New York) will curate sections dedicated to innovative solo shows and a program of ambitious artist commissions and talks. Unrivalled in curated content, quality and range, Frieze New York will create an immersive cultural experience overlooking the East River.
Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the fifth consecutive year, continuing a shared commitment to discovery and artistic excellence.
In 2016, Frieze celebrates the 25th anniversary year since it was founded by Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover in 1991. This year sees Victoria Siddall’s first edition of Frieze New York as Director, taking over from Matthew Slotover and Amanda Sharp and supported by Artistic Directors Abby Bangser and Joanna Stella-Sawicka.
Siddall said: ‘I am thrilled to welcome the best galleries from all over the world to Frieze New York 2016, including excellent new additions. Exhibitors will show artists both emerging and established, building on the fantastic quality of the 2015 edition, which led to many significant sales to international museums as well as private collections. The fair’s curated elements are a draw in themselves, from Spotlight for rare presentations of 20th-century work, to Frame and Focus for emerging galleries and solo shows, to Frieze Projects’ new artist commissions and Frieze Talks’ program of cultural influencers – all put together by world-leading independent curators. Frieze New York has become an unmissable moment in the calendar for collectors, artists, curators, students and art enthusiasts, not to mention the best moment in the year to celebrate the great city that hosts the fair.’
