2016 Education Program

Including workshops and tours with TJ Wilcox, Dieu Donné, MoMA PS1, Project Projects and more

Organized as part of the non-profit arm of Frieze New York, Frieze Education runs annually from October through June, providing high school students and children from underserved communities across New York’s five boroughs with access to arts programs through a combination of workshops and tours of artist studios, galleries, museums, and the fair. For 2016, Frieze Education is focused on students’ creative responses to the art they encounter in museums and galleries and the similarities and differences from their own art-making and education.

Sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the fourth consecutive year, Frieze Education encompasses ‘Frieze Teen’ workshops with major artists and cultural organizations across New York that illuminate the journey of an art work from creation to exhibition. For ‘Frieze Teens’ 2016, participants have met with artists such as TJ Wilcox, Jessi Reaves, and visited contemporary galleries, museums and non-profit art spaces including Dieu Donné, Bridget Donahue Gallery, Materials for the Arts, MoMA PS1, Project Projects and White Columns. Frieze Teens have created the Youth Guide to the Fair in collaboration with Project Projects and will also serve as volunteer tour guides at Frieze New York for visiting school groups.

On Sunday, May 8 at 3pm, the Frieze Teens will present a film about their experience of Frieze Education.
