at VOLTA June 13th - June 18th
Posted 6/11/16

Now an accomplished pre-teen, VOLTA returns this week for its twelfth year in the Basel art fair line up. From June 13–18, under the domed roof of the city's Markthalle, the fair for "new international positions" brings together nearly 70 galleries stemming from 21 countries. We're always grateful when we can consume art with context—especially at an art fair. Thus, in partnership with VOLTA and GalleryLOG, we're pleased to share this advance look at the processes and inspirations of five e... [more]

Posted 5/4/16

Special exhibition programming and the curatorial wing of an art fair play an essential role as feeder programs for bringing emerging artists and galleries into the world of high retail. To learn more about how Frieze selects exhibitors for its project-driven sectors, we caught up with Jacob Proctor, Curator at the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society and Co-advisor for Frieze's 2016 Frame and Focus sections. This year, the popular sectors comprise 18 solo presentations from galleries founde... [more]

Frieze Week in New York isn’t holding any punches this year. Upping its game from eight to eleven (plus) fairs, the week will have you zigzagging up Manhattan and beyond—from Brooklyn to the LES, Wall Street to the Hudson Piers, Park Avenue to Harlem. And when you think you’ve had enough, don’t forget to save half your day and all your lunch money to get over to Randall’s Island Park for the main event. To keep you zigging and zagging in the right direction, we present our... [more]

Under Bunoan’s direction Marker’s 100-square-meter area will concentrate on four artist-run spaces in metro Manila: 98-B, Post Gallery, Project 20, and Thousandfold. Installations by the late Roberto Chabet, widely recognized as the Ph... [more]

Dispatches from Immersion: "It's Renegade!"   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 3/2/16

As I was walking through the halls of Moynihan Station, weaving in and out of noir offices, I overheard a reporter repeatedly saying into a flip phone, as if he was relaying the latest from the frontlines, “It’s renegade, renegade!” I chuckled and kept meandering. Maggie Dunlop at SPRING/BREAK SPRING/BREAK is indeed a bit of a renegade. It has and continues to do its own thing, being the only curated fair I am aware of that doesn’t take exhibitor fees, but rather asks for a cut of sales. If... [more]

Armory Arts Week 2016: Your Guide to the New York Fairs   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 3/1/16

When The Armory Show hits the Hudson River piers this week, it brings with it more fairs and events than most reasonable art lovers would, or could, venture to attend. But who said anything about being reasonable? To help you make sense of the fair terrain this Armory Arts Week—to say nothing of the innumerable gallery openings, parties, and performances citywide—this one-stop guide should get you up to speed, leaving you more time to concentrate on that thing we're all here for—...

Miami Art Week Guide, Part I: Art Fairs Aplenty   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 11/30/15

It’s impossible to keep a Miami Art Week guide “concise.” The number of fairs alone—at last count 21, más o menos—will make any list scroll on and on. So we're not even trying. Instead, we’re splitting our guide into two: one for fairs and one for everything else. This guide will get you acquainted with the city’s seasonal guests: those itinerant behemoths that turn up and transform the town for one week out of the year. Unless you’re a masochis... [more]

In Ryan Mendoza’s Detroit House, Debris of a Financial Collapse Turns into Relief Aid   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Ryan Mendoza at Art Rotterdam February 11th - February 14th
Posted 2/8/16

Is it a sculpture? A political indictment? A social activist gesture? Or maybe some form of contemporary historiography? It’s not really clear how to define or classify Ryan Mendoza’s Detroit House. One thing’s for sure, though: it’s not a house. You could easily be fooled into thinking it is. It’s got a roof, walls, a porch, windows, and a door you can enter through. It lacks, however, neighbors, a path or driveway leading up to it, a connection to the local power grid, a foundat... [more]

Editors' Picks: Art Los Angeles Contemporary 2016   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
at Art Los Angeles Contemporary January 28th - January 31st
Posted 1/25/16

Art Los Angeles Contemporary opens this week—arguably the West Coast's key commercial event for the year, especially for local galleries who feature heavily in the line-up. Looking at artwork in an art fair can be a bit like viewing art on the internet: the structure often strips work of its full effect. To remedy the fatigue of serial image consumption—and give more credit to the artists, looking past their works' obvious marketability and apparent aesthetic trends—we're giving you so... [more]

Art Los Angeles Contemporary opens this week—arguably the West Coast's key commercial event for the year, especially for local galleries who feature heavily in the line-up. We realized recently when discussing the way fairs are set up, that, a bit like viewing art on the internet, the structure often strips work of its full purpose. To remedy the fatigue of serial image consumption—and give more credit to the artists, looking past the obvious marketability and the apparent aesthetic... [more]

Top Insiders' Tips to Getting into Miami Art Week Parties Without an Invite   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 11/24/15

As the glitterati descend upon Florida’s art capital, we'd love to think Art Basel Miami Beach is more than just exclusive parties for rich people in fancy hotels, but the happenings around the fair don't always dissuade this interpretation. This epic art world extravaganza has seen Miley Cyrus decked out in butterfly wings, Amanda Lepore blowing puffy red kisses, and Jay-Z casually perusing the fair's booths. This is where artists swim in the pool drunk with curators who, in turn, run arou... [more]

Contemporary Istanbul Emerging Gallery Spotlight: Mixer   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

To ‘shine’ means to shine upon something, to make that upon which the light falls appear. —Hans Georg Gadamer Almost every artwork needs a spectator, and artists need a platform to connect their work with those viewers. While today these platforms vary, artists still need spaces—be it the conventional gallery or the digital realm—that are able to reach and mobilize a broad audience. Galleries still matter: they not only provide artists with a means f... [more]

Contemporary Tehran: Istanbul's Iranian Gallery Focus Shows an Art Scene on the Rise   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Following high-powered political negotiations, Iran recently expanded its 30-day visa upon arrival program to include citizens of a number of European, Asian, and Middle Eastern nations—including France, Germany, and Singapore, all with a concentration of high-end galleries and collectors. The new policy has already resulted in an increase in “cultural tourists,” and a boom in the art tourism industry seems an inevitability. “I can say 70 percent of my collectors are lo... [more]

A Flâneur’s Guide to FIAC’s Hors Les Murs   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

With its annual Hors Les Murs programming, FIAC is once more transforming Paris into a tableau vivant with art spread citywide, well beyond the glass domes of the Grand Palais. Here you’ll find a suggested promenade replete with the best artful stops outside the fair’s walls. Follow my itinerary, or in the true spirit of Baudelaire’s flâneur, go ahead and wander, get lost, and see what you find—you’re sure to stumble upon some art! Dan Graham, Passa... [more]
