World’s leading contemporary art galleries
Frieze New York features 180 of the most exciting contemporary galleries working today. Galleries that are regular exhibitors at Frieze London are accompanied by those new to Frieze, in particular the young galleries included in Frame, a section dedicated to those established less than six years ago. The New York fair introduces Focus, a section for galleries opened in or after 2001 showing a presentation of up to three gallery artists.

Frieze Projects New York
Frieze New York will also benefit from a program of specially commissioned Projects curated by Cecilia Alemani and produced under the auspices of a non-profit arm. Frieze Projects New York is sponsored by Mulberry with additional support from Outset.

The majority of the Projects are situated outdoors and are located across Randall’s Island. Artists have been invited to react to the exceptional environment of Frieze New York by creating special projects that respond to the island’s unique geography. The eight artists who will participate in Frieze Projects New York are: John Ahearn, Uri Aran, Latifa Echakhch, Joel Kyack, Rick Moody, Virginia Overton, Tim Rollins and K.O.S., and Ulla von Brandenburg.
