  • John Ahearn

    John Ahearn will present a reconstruction of his 1979 legendary exhibition ‘South Bronx Hall of Fame’, an exhibition of sculptural casts originally presented at Fashion Moda, a pioneering South Bronx alternative space founded by Stefan Eins in 1978 and open until 1993.

  • Uri Aran

    Uri Aran will turn a derelict structure into a fictional examination room in which actors will play the roles of doctors and patients. The encounters will be filmed and projected live inside the fair.

  • Latifa Echakhch

    For her project, Echakhch will turn a patch of grass on Randall’s Island into an enchanting mirage – installing hundreds of tumbleweeds in an incongruous location.

  • Joel Kyack

    Joel Kyack will create a country fair game trailer shaped as a giant body for Frieze Projects.

  • Rick Moody

    American novelist Rick Moody has been commissioned to write a short story for Frieze Projects.

  • Virginia Overton

    Virginia Overton’s project will react to the idyllic landscape of Randall’s Island by installing flexible mirrors among trees.

  • Tim Rollins and K.O.S

    Working on a 40-foot table under a canopy of large oak trees on Randall’s Island, the collaborative team of Tim Rollins and Kids Of Survival will conduct their first open workshop for children and youth.

  • Ulla von Brandenburg

    For her project at Frieze New York, Ulla von Brandenburg will construct an outdoor shadow theater hidden in a brightly striped tent reminiscent of a circus structure.
