Frieze New York 2017 opens to the public today. Plan your day around the city and the fair
Frieze New York opens today to all visitors, but start the day with the Frieze Lower East Side and SoHo Morning, when galleries like Miguel Abreu, Bridget Donahue, David Lewis (pictured above) and Salon 94 hold special opening hours.
While Downtown, don’t miss the New Museum’s exhibition of British painter Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, curated by Massimiliano Gioni and Nathalie Bell. Try the Midtown Frieze ferry from E 35th St to return to the fair.
The fair is open 11am - 6pm
Frieze Projects New York this year includes a roving cinematic performance by Croatian-born, New York based Dora Budor, a sculptural installation by Elaine Cameron-Weir beside the East River shore and Jon Rafman’s immersive, psychedelic cinema.
Every year, Frieze Projects New York Curator Cecilia Alemani pays tribute to an influential artist project or artists-run-space. This year’s Tribute commission pays homage to Il Teatro delle Mostre (‘Theatre of Exhibitions’), a groundbreaking performance series made in Rome in 1968. Works from the original event will be restaged alongside new works by Adam Pendleton and Ryan McNamara at P4, near the Frame section. Check out the exclusive video interview with Giosetta Fioroni - whose project for the original Teatro will be recreated at the fair - to learn more.
Tickets for Frieze New York are available here.
