Taking place daily at Frieze New York, Frieze Talks is curated for the fourth consecutive year by Tom Eccles (Executive Director, Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, New York).

From the re-hang of the Museum of Modern Art’s collection in response to Executive Order 13769, to the controversy over representation of racial trauma in the Whitney Biennial, New York’s artistic community continues to confront questions of agency, politics and perspective.

Exploring these themes, this year’s Frieze Talks features Claudia Rankine—2016 MacArthur Fellow and winner of the 2017 Bobbitt National Poetry Prize for her collection Citizen: An American Lyric—discussing her writing and her newly-founded Racial Imaginary Institute; a panel on art and social commitment chaired by Shuddhabrata Sengupta of Raqs Media Collective (curators of the 11th Shanghai Biennial, ‘Why Not Ask Again’) and featuring artists Tania Bruguera, Anri Sala and—ahead of her major project with Philadelphia MuseumJeanne van Heeswijk; and a conversation on ‘complicating the Modern’ with Ann Temkin, Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA. The program additionally offers a chance to deepen discussion and understanding of content within the fair itself, such as the enhanced presence of Modernist and political art.

Frieze Talks takes place daily at 11.30am in the Stella Artois Café, adjacent to stand H1, at Frieze New York from Friday, May 5 through Sunday, May 7.

Access to Frieze Talks is included in all admission tickets. Seats are available on a first come first served basis.
