Convening more than 200 galleries from 31 countries for its fifth edition,
Frieze New York showcases an extraordinary cross-section of work by contemporary artists from around the world, from the newly discovered to contemporary masters. On view in Randall’s Island Park from May 5 – 8, 2016, with an invitation-only preview on May 4, the fair is mounted in a light-filled structure designed for the presentation of contemporary art, providing collectors, scholars, and art enthusiasts alike with an immersive cultural experience overlooking the East River. This year’s Frieze New York features an unparalleled program of solo shows, ambitious artist commissions and installations, curated sections showcasing emerging artists and galleries, education programs and talks that share nuanced perspectives on the world of contemporary art.

Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the fifth consecutive year, continuing a shared commitment to discovery and artistic excellence. Victoria Siddall, Director of Frieze, is leading the team for Frieze New York 2016, with Artistic Directors Abby Bangser and Joanna Stella-Sawicka. Independent curators Cecilia Alemani (High Line Art, New York), Tom Eccles (Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College), Clara M Kim (Tate Modern, London), Jacob Proctor (Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, University of Chicago) and Fabian Schöneich (Portikus, Frankfurt), are devising feature sections of the fair and a program of ambitious artist commissions and talks.
