A Few Delights at Frieze New York

32 things I would like to buy, stare at, or eat, with some commentary

New York artist Gina Beavers outdoes herself with just three works at Clifton Benevento, of Manhattan—that lip painting and two cubes, each visible side blessed with a panel, heavy with paint. It's hard to pick between the porn one and the food porn one. Pure joy.ARTNEWS

Whining about art fairs is a time-honored tradition. They’re too crowded. They’re expensive. They make art look terrible. The food is bad. The food is overpriced. All of these things are true! (Except for the part about food, which at Frieze New York is really pretty wonderful.) I like to whine, too. But as I try to remind myself regularly, there are always a few pleasures to be had at any art fair—a discovery, a new work by a favorite artist, or a choice combination of pieces that just bowls you over. Sometimes all three events occur. Below, a few things that I enjoyed at Frieze, which runs through May 8.
