Frieze New York‘s debut was in 2012 as an art festival that showcased contemporary art on Randall’s Island, a small island East of Manhattan. In May 2013, the second annual fair occurred at the same place with various new artists both known and up-and-coming. The fair has several galleries for a variety of different contemporary artists all within a temporary structure, merely resembling a miniature version of the LACMA in California.
Each of the artists’ unique craftsmanship differs vastly from one another. Some of the most abstract pieces include a surf board that is divided into three pieces and painted with designs in light, summery colors; another being mannequin calfs and feet covered in worn out socks and lying on top of each other; as well as a New York style supreme pizza seemingly plastered onto a wall. While this festival only occurs once a year, you can always check out their Instagram and Twitter (@friezenewyork) to see a selection of the pieces from this year and stay updated for next year’s fair!
