Frieze New York

Frieze Art Fair 2014 has officially descended upon New York! Of all the art fairs clamoring for our attention these days – and there are LOTS – Frieze New York is my favorite. The fair kicks off a busy month in the New York art world, abounding with major auctions, gallery openings, and museum galas.

Even with more than 190 national and international galleries exhibiting, Frieze is totally doable in a couple of hours and you don’t feel like you’ve hiked Everest afterwards. The atmosphere is lighthearted, especially given that Frieze takes place in a giant tent on Randall’s Island, and galleries always take a bit of a risk by mixing in the young and whimsical with the established regulars. (And, most importantly, Frieze New York has great coffee and restaurant options from NYC’s favorite spots like Momofuku and Frankies, so no need to fear for low blood-sugar moments!)

Here’s a preview of works I’m excited to see later today!
