"The Other Side of the Fair": In Conversation with Samara Golden  
5/12/15 Posted 5/12/15

Samara Golden draws you in and shuts you out. Sewing, stuffing, and cutting materials of personal industriousness—fabrics, pantyhose, found thriftwares, cosmetology heads—the props in her motley sets splay out against all manner of reflective surfaces, situating some version of you inside her bendy armatures of time, place, and movie-inflected memory. M.C. Escher meets Miami Vice, the campy slickness melting into your own face as seen in a broken mirror, a slab of reflective polystyrene... [more]

Friezer Burn: Frieze, Artexpo, and the paradox of taste   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Depending on one’s relationship to art fairs such as Frieze, the social and professional rituals associated with attending them can cause fevered excitement, or make the blood run, well, cold. Visit often enough and those galleries and artists that have been admitted to this carefully guarded system reveal the political hierarchies of this particular art world. While each fair has its own approach, thousands of works, and new artists each year, the perennial experience can be one of creep... [more]

Posted 5/6/14

This weekend the art circus comes to New York City. On Friday the annual Frieze Art Fair opens on Randall’s Island for four festive days along with a smorgasbord of satellite fairs scattered throughout the city. Trying to see everything almost always means you’ll remember next to nothing, which is certainly a bummer when the circus leaves town. But with a good strategy and the trusty guide we’ve assembled you should be able to navigate the madness, catch some interesting pan... [more]

Yes, Another Art Fair: ArtMiami Acquires the Inaugural Downtown Fair NYC  
1/23/14 Posted 1/23/14

The news is just out that ArtMiami LLC has just acquired the Downtown Fair, set to open at the 69th Regiment Armory during Frieze New York. The fair was purchased for an undisclosed price from the previous organizers, who "will not have any involvement or interest in the new fair." I'd never heard of this fair, so I was a bit surprised that ArtMiami—who in 2013 purchased Aqua Art Fair in Miami Beach, and is set to also open a new fair in Silicon Valley in 2014—was announcing a purcha...

Giving FOOD its due: “FOOD 1971/2013”   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

This year’s Frieze New York fair sees the Projects portion of its programming celebrating FOOD, the historic restaurant-artwork hybrid most associated with artist Gordon Matta-Clark. While the Projects’ inaugural theme was turning Randall’s Island into a “fantasy world,” according to curator Cecilia Alemani, its second year focuses on “basic actions such as eating, drinking, speaking and praying… [engaging] the ritualistic dimension of the fair and the unique landscape of the island.” FOOD fits rathe...

The Audience, Remixed: Haroon Mirza at Frieze Sounds   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 5/8/13

Haroon Mirza has made his reputation as an artist of the remix. He structures the unglamorous beeps and buzzes of antiquated audio technology into beats and melodies. But he also appreciates those machines for their sculptural qualities, synchronizing their sounds with lights and moving pieces – as if Kraftwerk were building a Rube Goldberg machine. Part music, part sculpture, part architectural intervention, Mirza remixes not just sounds but the spaces they inhabit. For his Frieze Sounds commissio... [more]

Frieze New York: Literature and Art Fairs   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 5/7/13

The art fair as cultural event is pretty well established now. It makes sense to use the pretext of the weird art supermarket that forms the body of the fair as an excuse for a wider programme; it adds interest and tempers the slightly distasteful frenzy that makes it so difficult to actually see the art everyone's here for. As part of this year's Frieze New York we have the opportunity to attend a reading and Q&A session with Lydia Davis. For those of you who aren't familiar with her, as well as... [more]
