Frame and Spotlight

Frame is dedicated to solo artists (18 galleries), and will have gallery 80m2 Livia Benavides with artist Rita Ponce de León who’ll be interacting with visitors by conducting a survey into their behavioral traits. Freedman Fitzpatrick’s (LA) booth will be turned into an evolving landscape of fluffy synthetic polyester material by Philip Zach. Leo Xu Projects’ (Shanghai) booth will feature a site-specific meditation-like room covered in patches of carpets which artist Liu Shiyuan purchased from infamous (Chinese equivalent of ebay). This immersive room will include a sound installation by the artist.

Spotlight is curated by Clara M Kim and brings to the fair solo 20th-century artist presentations of works which have been overlooked by art history. It will present the work of seminal artists from countries like Belarus, Guyana and Slovakia. This is the section where most of Institutional collections make purchases during the fair. Here Gallery Pippy Houldsworth (London) will dedicate its booth to artist Mary Kelly work called Interim which will be an exploration of the unknown terrain of middle-aged life (the artist is also currently having a show at the Henry Moore Institute). Icon Gallery (New York) will show Indian-born, French-based, artist S.H.Raza who’s paintings will fuse the timelessness of the East with the abstraction long thought of the West. And Franklin Parrasch Gallery (New York) will display Joe Goode’s early works including his famous milk bottles that also made Artforum’s cover in 1962.

Frieze Projects

The Frieze Projects program at Frieze New York 2016 will feature six new artworks, both inside the fair and around Randall’s Island Park, Manhattan. Curated by Cecilia Alemani (High Line Art, New York), Frieze Projects is the celebrated non-profit program of artist commissions realized annually at Frieze New York. This year’s program explores the magical possibilities of artistic intervention, with performances, sculptures and clandestine actions, which respond to the fair environment in unexpected and often humorous ways. The artists participating in Frieze Projects at Frieze New York 2016 are: Alex Da Corte, Anthea Hamilton, David Horvitz, Eduardo Navarro, Heather Phillipson, and a tribute to the Daniel Newburg Gallery with a special project by Maurizio Cattelan.
