Frieze, please: the contemporary art event of the year is just around the corner. With thousands of standout artists’ greatest works on display at the expansive Randall’s Island Park site alongside a long and impressive roster of talks, music, and multimedia expressions, Frieze New York is the perfect place to spend the first weekend of May. Here’s how to optimize the experience, as told by our panel of expert concierges.
Your LIVunLtd concierge will be happy to arrange for round-trip transport to and from Randall’s Island Park. Should you prefer to take the scenic route via the Frieze Ferry, simply request details and ticket procurement. Additionally, there is a Frieze Bus, which departs from and returns to the Guggenheim. Tickets for both the ferry and the train are round-trip and must be purchased ahead of time.
Frieze New York’s new feature, Frieze Bespoke, is an exclusive opportunity to experience the fair in a strategic and curated fashion tailored to your personal tastes. You’ll be accompanied by an art specialist, who will guide you through the maze that is Frieze on a personal (and undoubtedly unforgettable) journey. Contact your LIVunLtd to arrange.
Should you choose to navigate the fair on your own, however, here are the must-sees at the top of our list:
Curator Cecilia Alemani presents a collection of installations that explore the ways we interpret the fair in various expressions of what it means to watch and be watched.
Don’t miss Hauser & Wirth, Lehmann Maupin, Pace, The Box, Victoria Miro, Perrotin, and David Zwirner’s showcases.
PERFORMANCE & INTERACTIVE WORKS
This year’s “Focus” section will play home to artists like Dawn Kasper, who is presenting an interactive installation of musical sculpture channeling the concept of desire.
WHERE TO FUEL UP
Any day spent exploring rows upon rows of art is one worth rewarding oneself with great food and drink afterward. This year, Frieze New York will feature food and drink by Café Altro Paradiso, Court Street Grocers, Frankies Spuntino, Marlow & Sons, Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream, Roberta’s, Russ & Daughters, Sant Ambroeus, and TYME Fast Food.
