Frieze 2014


Art fairs are sort of like the arena rock concerts of exhibitions: heavy on the overkill and likely to leave you feeling a bit bludgeoned at the end (although if your ears are ringing when you leave the fair, you should see a doctor—that’s unrelated and possibly serious). With 190 participating galleries to get through, Frieze New York (which got its start in London) is definitely the Kiss concert of the art fair scene, though it does have the advantage of being held under a big tent on bucolic Randalls Island. If nothing else, the pleasantly relaxing 30-minute ferry ride gives you plenty of time to ready yourself for the upcoming onslaught.

This year’s edition of the fair—which ran May 9 through today—was the third here in our fair city. Its first couple days had to contend with drizzle and thunderstorms, unfortunately. Still, when Time Out New York visited on the first full day, the crowds were robust and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. As for the art—well, there was a lot of it. We managed to grab shots of some of the better stuff on view.
