Frieze Projects at Frieze New York 2012

Frieze Projects at Frieze New York 2012
Details Announced
4–7 May 2012



The eight artists that will participate in the inaugural Frieze Projects program for Frieze New York are: John Ahearn, Uri Aran, Latifa Echakhch, Joel Kyack, Rick Moody, Virginia Overton, Tim Rollins and K.O.S. and Ulla von Brandenburg. The Frieze Projects program is realized annually at Frieze New York and is curated by Cecilia Alemani.

Frieze New York will be located in the unique setting of Randall’s Island Park, overlooking the East River.

The majority of the commissioned projects are situated outdoors and are located throughout Randall’s Island. Artists have been invited to respond to the island’s unique geography. The projects have been conceived as not only interactions with the existing architecture of the site but also participatory platforms for the fair’s visitors and existing local communities. Forming a temporary pop-up village, the commissioned artworks will provide punctuation points to the island, activating vital sites or remote locations and will provide a navigational tool for visitors to the fair and its environment.

Frieze Projects presents newly commissioned artworks by international artists. The artists commissioned by Frieze Projects will use Frieze New York as a site to realise ambitious ideas.

Frieze New York will take place 4–7 May 2012 and will present over 170 of the world’s leading galleries. Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank.
