Rebecca Ann Siegel has been announced as the Publisher of frieze magazine.

Siegel will divide her time between New York, Berlin and London, working alongside Editorial Director Jennifer Higgie to lead frieze’s print and digital publishing.
‘Rebecca is a brilliant publisher with a unique understanding of how print and digital can work together in a fresh, modern way, while championing critical thinking,’ commented Nick Chapin, frieze Director of Publishing. ‘We are particularly pleased to have Rebecca joining our team in New York with a global remit. Rapid growth in our US readership shows the appetite for frieze’s global perspective on contemporary art and culture in the current climate. With Rebecca on board, we are excited to continue challenging the way publishing can serve the art community in the 21st century.’
‘I am thrilled to join Frieze, a media company with more than 25 years of experience that is poised to lead today’s cultural conversation,’ said Siegel. ‘Matthew Slotover and Amanda Sharp have developed an enviable community of contributors and readers, and I'm looking forward to bringing some New York spirit to expand those ambitions in the coming years.’
Prior to publishing Even magazine, Siegel was an associate at Ruth Catone, a New York-based art advisory firm, and at Pace Gallery, where she worked in the president's office. Siegel holds a BA from Yale University and an MA from Columbia University, both in art history. She currently chairs the board of the Friends of Mount Sinai, New York's largest health system, and serves on the council of the Yale School of Art.
