The first New York edition of London’s FRIEZE Art Fair takes place from May 4 till May 7. Located in temporary structure (designed by SO-IL architects) on Randall’s Island Park and overlooking the East River, the fair will be divided in 3 sections: main section with internationally established galleries; Frame, presenting solo projects of artists represented by young galleries (less than 6 years old); and Focus: galleries that have opened in or after 2001. Talks, 8 artists’ projects & sounds (3 commissioned audio works) will accompany the main fair program. See Guardian’s photo preview of some pieces which are to be shown on the fair.
And in case u’re already in NY tonight, pop by MoMA PS1 between 8 to 11 pm for the kick-off party. Martha Wainwright will perform a full concert in the museum’s courtyard dome, including couple of her famous Edith Piaf covers plus some Kraftwerk-inspired tributes.
