Frame Stand Prize Winner Announced

The inaugural winner is Truth and Consequences, Geneva

 

Supported in its first year by Stella Artois, the Frame Stand Prize recognizes an outstanding gallery presentation at Frieze New York’s Frame section, which showcases the world’s most exciting young galleries from Lima to Los Angeles, Chicago to Shanghai.

A jury of international institutional curators and directors awarded Geneva- based gallery Truth and Consequences the prize of $7,500, for its exceptional presentation featuring works by Daniel Dewar and Grégory Gicquel. The jury praised the ‘wonderful, ambitious stand, which demonstrated a commitment to working with a variety of materials. We enjoyed the injection of humour and collaboration between two artists’. This year’s jurors included Sarah McCrory (Director, Glasgow International, UK), Pavel Pyś (Curator of Visual Arts, Walker Art, Minneapolis, USA) and Gabriel Ritter (Curator of Contemporary Art, Minneapolis Institute of Art, USA).

Leo Xu Projects from Shanghai received a Special Commendation from the jury, who said their presentation of Liu Shiyuan was ‘one of the most compelling and ambitious in the Frame section’.

The jury commended the global scope of the fair, noting the range of international artists. ‘Across the board there’s been a feeling of discovery in the Frame section, which we as curators appreciate.’

Joanna Stella-Sawicka (Artistic Director, Frieze) said ‘The Frame Stand Prize exists to recognise the extraordinary quality and creativity we see from the emerging international galleries at Frieze New York each year. Young galleries are a vital part of the contemporary art ecosystem and Frieze is committed to creating structures that nurture this talent. We are thrilled that Stella Artois has come onboard as a partner to help make this possible.’

Frieze New York 2016 is open to the public until Sunday 8 May, featuring more than 200 galleries and offering a discerning perspective on contemporary art. The fifth edition is sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the fifth consecutive year, celebrating a shared commitment to discovery and artistic excellence.

Advised by curators Jacob Proctor and Fabian Schöneich, the Frame section features 18 of the world’s most exciting galleries under eight years old, presenting solo shows of today’s most relevant artists.
