The fifth edition of Frieze New York returns to Randall’s Island Park, Manhattan from May 5–8, 2016.
In a bespoke structure designed for the experience of art, more than 200 international galleries will bring together the world’s most exciting emerging and established contemporary artists.
Independent curators Cecilia Alemani (High Line Art, New York), Clara M Kim (Tate Modern, London), Jacob Proctor (Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society at the University of Chicago), Fabian Schöneich (Portikus, Frankfurt) and Tom Eccles (Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, New York) will curate sections dedicated to innovative solo shows and a program of ambitious artist commissions and talks. Unrivalled in curated content, quality and range, Frieze New York will create an immersive cultural experience overlooking the East River.
Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the fifth consecutive year, continuing a shared commitment to discovery and artistic excellence. In 2016, Frieze celebrates the 25th anniversary year since it was founded by Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover in 1991. This year sees Victoria Siddall’s first edition of Frieze New York as Director, taking over from Matthew Slotover and Amanda Sharp and supported by Artistic Directors Abby Bangser and Joanna Stella-Sawicka.
