Frieze New York 2012: Projects Announced

The eight artists who will participate in the inaugural Frieze Projects program for Frieze 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. The Frieze Projects program is realized annually at Frieze New York and is curated by Cecilia Alemani.

Artists have been invited to respond to Randall's Island’s unique geography. Forming a temporary pop-up village, the commissioned artworks will provide punctuation points to the island, activating vital sites or remote locations and providing a navigational tool for visitors to the fair and its environment.

Frieze Projects presents newly commissioned artworks by international artists. The artists commissioned by Frieze Projects will use Frieze New York as a site to realise ambitious ideas.

Frieze New York is an international contemporary art fair that will include approximately 170 of the world's leading galleries. A temporary bespoke structure, designed by New York-based SO-IL architects, will be constructed on Randall's Island Park, overlooking the East River.

Frieze New York will have three sections. The main section is open to galleries who show an international programme of artists and present a minimum of four exhibitions per year. Frame is a section of the fair dedicated to galleries under six-years old and will be selected on the basis of the proposed solo artist presentation. The third section Focus is for galleries that have opened in or after 2001, galleries applying to this section may propose a presentation of up to three gallery artists.
