For the seventh rendition of Frieze New York, director Victoria Siddall and artistic director Loring Randolph revamped the art fair by introducing new programs that emphasize Frieze’s place in the New York art scene.
The fair’s standard Main, Frame, and Spotlight sections are supplemented by new additions like Live, dedicated to performances, installations, and interactive projects. In Assembly, curator of performance at the Whitney Museum of American Art Adrienne Williams curated a new section for street performance and protest. Edwards also curated the Frieze Artist Award, whose winner, Kapwani Kiwanga, will display her site-specific installation, “Shady,” at the Frieze entrance. Frieze will pay tribute to the late art dealer Hudson and his trailblazing gallery, Feature Inc, in their first thematic section For Your Infotainment.
In light of its new programs, here’s a guide to the must-see exhibitions at Frieze New York.
