New York-based Rachel Rose is the winner of the Frieze Art Award, which was founded last year and offers an emerging artist a site-specific installation at the London fair. Rose’s project will be on view at the 2015 iteration of the fair, held in Regent’s Park from October 14 to 17 this year. Here’s Frieze’s description of the work:
“At Frieze London 2015, Rose will create a scale-model of the fair structure. Inside, lighting and sound design will simulate the sonic and visual sense frequencies of animals inhabiting the Regent’s Park. Drawing attention to the park’s multiple layers of communication and perception, Rose will open up a spectrum of sensory worlds for fair visitors to inhabit and experience. This commission invites Rose – who has previously worked in film – to pursue an ambitious installation-based project.”
Hans Ulrich Obrist, who was part of the award’s selection committee, said in a statement that Rose “is one of the great artists of her generation.”
For those of you collapsing with excitement over Frieze London—because it takes all kinds, I guess—Frieze New York opens next month on Randall’s Island, where Rose will appear in conversation on May 14 with Obrist and artist Tony Oursler.
