Frieze New York will return to Randall’s Island Park, Manhattan from May 14 to 17. For the fourth consecutive year, Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank.

Housed within an innovative structural design and overlooking the East River, the fair will showcase the world’s most exciting contemporary galleries. This year sees the introduction of Spotlight, a new gallery section which will take place alongside the existing Frame and Focus sections. The fair also benefits from a celebrated non-profit program comprising Frieze Projects, Talks, Sounds and Education.

The World’s leading contemporary art galleries:
The fourth edition of the New York art fair will bring together over 190 of the world’s leading contemporary galleries, with 63 participants from the fair’s host city.

The 2015 fair introduces Spotlight, a new section for solo presentations of 20th-century art which has been a critically acclaimed feature at Frieze Masters in London and is advised by curator Adriano Pedrosa. Emerging galleries will take part in the Focus and Frame sections of the fair. Focus galleries have been founded after 2003 and show curated projects specially conceived for Frieze New York. The Frame section, dedicated to galleries established less than eight years ago, presents solo presentations and is advised by curators Raphael Gygax and Jacob Proctor.

Frieze Projects
The Frieze Projects program at Frieze New York is curated by Cecilia Alemani and will feature six new artworks, inside, outside and even underneath the fair on Randall’s Island. The artists participating this year are Korakrit Arunanondchai, Pia Camil, Samara Golden, Aki Sasamoto and Allyson Vieira. The program will also feature a special tribute to the Flux-Labyrinth, an installation conceived in Berlin in 1976 by George Maciunas, in collaboration with other Fluxus artists. For this homage at Frieze New York, Amalia Pica, John Bock and the collective Gelitin will create new environments, which turn the experience of traversing the space into a joyful and surreal exercise.

Frieze Talks
Bringing together leading artists, writers, and cultural commentators, Frieze Talks 2015 is programmed by Tom Eccles (Executive Director, Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College) and Christy Lange (Associate Editor, frieze). This year’s participants include Paul McCarthy (artist), Thelma Golden (Director and Chief Curator, Studio Museum in Harlem) and Jerry Saltz (Critic, New York Magazine), among many others. Frieze Talks takes place in the onsite auditorium at Frieze New York from Thursday, May 14 through Sunday, May 17. Access to Frieze Talks is included in all admission tickets.

Frieze Sounds
For its fourth edition Frieze Sounds will feature three commissioned audio works by international artists: Alicja Kwade, Xaviera Simmons and Sergei Tcherepnin. Frieze Sounds is programmed and curated by Cecilia Alemani and presented with BMW. The works will be accessible at a listening station within the fair, and at, available to download from May 14.

The Education program at Frieze New York gives high school students and children from underserved communities across all five boroughs access to arts programs, with a combination of workshops and tours for school groups. Frieze Education is sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the third consecutive year.

Stand Prize
The most innovative gallery stand at the fair will receive a prize supported by Champagne Pommery. The prize of 15,000 USD will be judged by an international panel of curators: Carlos Basualdo (the Keith L. and Katherine Sachs Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art), Hamza Walker (Co-Curator, Made in LA 2016) and Ruba Katrib (Curator, SculptureCenter, New York). The recipient of the Stand Prize will be presented with their award at 4pm on Wednesday 13 May.

To reflect its commitment to the diversity of cultural life in New York, Frieze has also invited three alternative spaces in the city to present at the fair. New to Frieze New York in 2015 are Bidoun, a platform for new questions, images, and ideas about the Middle East, and SculptureCenter, dedicated to experimental and innovative developments in contemporary sculpture; while White Columns, the city’s oldest alternative art space, will return for the second consecutive year.
