2018 Frieze Week Art Fair Cheat Sheet

Frieze New York.


Frieze week is upon us again. Below, a guide to various fairs opening this week, from 1-54 to TEFAF.

Frieze New York
May 2–6
Frieze New York returns to Randall’s Island Park for its seventh edition, helmed for the first time by the fair’s new artistic director, Loring Randolph. In addition to an architectural redesign, a special section, “For Your Infotainment,” which focuses on the legacy of the late New York gallerist Hudson, will be part of the fair, alongside its recurring “Frame,” “Live,” and “Spotlight” sections. Tracey Emin, Theaster Gates, Zoe Leonard, and Arthur Jafa are among the artists at the fair whose work will be the subject of solo presentations at various booths, and Kapwani Kiwanga, the first-ever Frieze Artist Award winner, will debut a newly commissioned work. Frieze runs a ferry and bus service to the fair, and recommends that these tickets be booked in advance, as there self-parking is prohibited on the island. Single-day admission excluding transportation is $48.

Hours and information

Correction 5/3/18, 4:40 p.m.: An earlier version of this article misstated details about the Moniker Art Fair. There will be installations by 13 solo artists from 20 galleries, not 14 artists from 14 galleries. The post has been updated to reflect this.
