Frieze New York 2015

  • Frieze New York 2015
May 9, 2015

Well, NYC is definitely a center of contemporary art market this spring. If Venice Biennale had not attracted so much attention in May, NYC would have been the global hub of contemporary art this month. This time it’s not about an exhibition in one of the main New York galleries, but about another amazing art fair – Frieze New York 2015. After London’s edition of Frieze held in fall, now, in springtime, this amazing art fair brings together renowned galleries, artists, art collectors and art lovers in Randall’s Island, Manhattan. The fourth edition of Frieze New York will bring together over 190 of the world’s leading contemporary galleries. Apart from showcasing the world’s most exciting contemporary galleries, Frieze New York 2015 will also have separate sections – Frame and Focus sections, with one novelty introduced this year for the first time – Spotlight section.

Spotlight is a new section for solo presentations of 20th-century art which has been a critically acclaimed feature at Frieze Masters in the capital of the UK. Advised by curator Adriano Pedrosa, Spotlight explores unexpected positions from established artists and presents new research into art from emerging territories, as well as significant work from overlooked artists. Rasheed Araeen (Aicon Gallery, New York), Lynn Hershman Leeson (Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco & Waldburger Wouters, Brussels), Howardena Pindell (Garth Greenan Gallery, New York), Carolee Schneemann (Hales, London) and Ibrahim El-Salahi (Vigo, London) are all included in the first New York edition of Spotlight. Frame section will feature solo presentations by young galleries under eight years old, while Focus section brings curated projects specially conceived for Frieze New York 2015 and includes the most forward-thinking galleries working today. Finally, Frieze also benefits from a celebrated non-profit program comprising Frieze Projects, Talks, Sounds and Education.

Frieze New York 2015 Interesting Moments

As we mentioned before, one of the focal points of the fair will be David Kordansky’s booth, where the gallery will present new work by Los Angeles-based painter Lesley Vance. One of the gallery’s founding artists, Vance has developed a singular abstract language, a portrayal, romantic yet exacting, of plastic space as a surrealist pictorial continuum. Her new paintings and collages, featuring her boldest colors and most graphic gestures, appear unmoored from worldly referent while according with, and flouting conventions of optical construction. Additionally, galleries that should also be visited are: Gagosian Gallery, Maureen Paley, Peres Projects, Hauser & Wirth, and many others.
