March 14, 2013

Frieze announced today the par­tic­i­pat­ing gal­leries for the organization’s sec­ond New York fair, which is to take place May 10–13, 2013 in Randall’s Island Park, Man­hat­tan. Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of the inau­gural edi­tion of the fair, Frieze New York is pleased to present a care­fully selected pre­sen­ta­tion of over 180 of the world’s lead­ing con­tem­po­rary art gal­leries, mak­ing the 2013 fair the largest event hosted by Frieze to date. For the sec­ond year Frieze New York is spon­sored by Deutsche Bank. The bank has been the main spon­sor of Frieze Lon­don since 2004 and in 2013 the two com­pa­nies enter the tenth year of their partnership.

A strong Amer­i­can and Euro­pean con­tin­gent of gal­leries is joined by those from the rest of the world, with 32 coun­tries rep­re­sented in total: Argentina, Aus­tralia, Aus­tria, Bel­gium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colom­bia, Den­mark, France, Ger­many, Greece, India, Ire­land, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, New Zealand, Nor­way, Poland, Roma­nia, Rus­sia, South Africa, Spain, Switzer­land, The Nether­lands, Turkey, UAE, UK and USA. Gal­leries from the fair’s host city num­ber 53.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing gal­leries new to the main sec­tion of the fair include: Mar­ian Good­man Gallery (New York); Good­man Gallery (Johan­nes­burg); L&M Arts (Los Ange­les); Luhring Augus­tine (New York); galerie kamel men­nour (Paris); Project 88 (Mum­bai); and Jack Shain­man Gallery (New York). The fol­low­ing artists will be shown as solo pre­sen­ta­tions: Alexan­dre Da Cunha (CRG gallery, New York); Zan­der Blom (Steven­son, Cape Town); Car­los Bunga (Gale­ria Elba Ben­itez, Madrid); Jack Early (McCaf­frey Fine Art, New York); Tino Seghal (Mar­ian Good­man Gallery, New York); and Dianna Molzan (Over­duin & Kite, Los Ange­les). Two artist stands will include: John Wes­ley and Mary Reid Kel­ley (Fred­er­icks & Freiser, New York); Pae White and Roe Ethridge (Andrew Kreps Gallery, New York, and green­grassi, Lon­don); and Tere­sita Fer­nán­dez and Do Ho Suh (Lehmann Maupin, New York).

Opened in or after 2002, Focus gal­leries debut works not pre­vi­ously seen within an art fair con­text. Inte­grated in zones around the fair, Focus gal­leries show both curated projects and solo stands, specif­i­cally con­ceived for Frieze New York. Rang­ing from Sara Van­Der­Beek at Alt­man Siegel (San Fran­cisco) to Joan Sem­mel at Alexan­der Gray Asso­ciates (New York), more pre­sen­ta­tions of note include Ivan Gallery’s (Bucharest) show of Geta Brătescu, Horia Bernea and Paul Neagu; Galerie Mezzanin’s (Vienna) pre­sen­ta­tion of Thomas Bayrle and Ger­ald Domenig; and Untitled’s (New York) solo project by Henry Taylor.

Frame is a sec­tion ded­i­cated to gal­leries estab­lished less than six years ago and, this year, is sup­ported by Joe Fresh. The Frame gal­leries selec­tion is made on the basis of a pro­posed solo pre­sen­ta­tion and has been advised by cura­tors Rodrigo Moura and Tim Saltarelli. Frame offers vis­i­tors and col­lec­tors the oppor­tu­nity to make dis­cov­er­ies and see work by artists who may not pre­vi­ously have ben­e­fit­ted from an inter­na­tional plat­form to show their work. Frame demon­strates a wide geog­ra­phy with excit­ing new art from all over the globe: Fiona Con­nor (Hop­kin­son Cundy, Auck­land); Liu Chuang (Leo Xu Projects, Shang­hai); Sophie Bueno-Boutellier (Cir­cus, Berlin); Steve Bishop (Carlos/Ishikawa, Lon­don); Patri­cia Leite (Mendes Wood, São Paulo); and Antek Wal­czak (Real Fine Arts, New York).

Frieze New York also ben­e­fits from a cura­to­r­ial pro­gram, Frieze Projects is curated by Cecilia Ale­mani. Frieze Talks is pro­grammed by the edi­tors of frieze and will explore the most per­ti­nent issues in cul­tural crit­i­cism today.

Frieze New York takes a sim­i­lar approach to the Lon­don fair, which brings an inter­na­tional focus to Lon­don every year. Designed by New York-based SOIL Archi­tects, Frieze New York is housed in a bespoke struc­ture and located in a unique set­ting over­look­ing the East River.

Co-directors Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slo­tover com­mented, ‘The sec­ond edi­tion of the fair is a fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­nity to build on every­thing we achieved last year. New York in May 2013 promises to be one of the most excit­ing weeks in the art world cal­en­dar. The strength and depth of the par­tic­i­pat­ing gal­leries list demon­strates the impor­tance of New York as an art center.’
