Video: Frieze Education 2015
Watch a short film produced by Frieze Teens, featuring interviews and footage from this year's workshops
On Sunday May 17, Frieze Teens presented a short film at Frieze New York, featuring footage and interviews which they have gathered during the workshop program and at the fair.
Exploring the professional aspects of the art world, the workshops took place ahead of the fair and acted as a first step in career development. 2015 brought a new emphasis on documentation, with Frieze Teens encouraged to investigate and record the people and places they visit, so that their experiences can be shared with arts educators and students. The 2015 program expanded into artistic production, asking students to envision and plan their personal ‘Dream Project’, as they also worked towards publishing their own artists’ publications.
Participants leading the 2015 workshops included artists Urs Fischer and Julie Mehretu, Triple Canopy, Cleopatra’s, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) and Material for the Arts (MFTA).
Supported by Deutsche Bank, the Frieze Education program for Frieze New York 2015 gives high school students and children from underserved communities across all five boroughs access to arts programs, with a combination of workshops and tours for school groups.
