by The Artslant Team
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.

Frieze Week 2015 Fair Guide: the Essentials

by The Artslant Team
Frieze Week 2015 unveils a packed and fairly new line up of fairs and exhibitions. This year three exciting newcomers enter the Frieze fold, while just as many depart from the May satellite roster (gone, relocated, rebranded, or rescheduled are Pulse, Cutlog, The Downtown Fair, and The Outsider Art Fair). Despite fewer fairs than Armory Week (which still feels like yesterday, no?), Frieze Week requires just as much planning and perhaps even more legwork: the main event is a ferry or bus ride up...

Art Basel Miami Beach: The Essential Guide

by The Artslant Team

In addition to Art Basel's seaside outpost, this year more than 20 art fairs—some brand new, others established in their own right—will take over the Miami beaches and Wynwood Arts District during Miami Art Week.

Fair-a-thon: The Experience of Way Too Much

by Charlie Schultz
I used to think the proper way to experience an exhibition of art was slowly, moving at a stroller’s pace and pausing frequently. Stillness seemed necessary if close examination was to be part of the point, which of course it was. After all looking at art was serious business, a solemn procedure, a moment for reverence and reflection. I picked up this behavior watching others and never questioned it until one afternoon back in 2008. I was lingering over a fine marble statue... [more]
