Celebrating its 10th anniversary in New York, Frieze art fair kicks off a VIP preview tomorrow morning, gathering dealers from 17 countries and a slate of cultural programming around the city. Under the helm of Christine Messineo, who became the director of Frieze’s New York and Los Angeles editions in November last year, the fair continues the intimate flavor of last May with its centralized location at the Shed at Hudson Yards and around 65 participants, nearly a third of pre-Covid numbers. For those who prefer to attend virtually, an online viewing room is still available. This year, however, Frieze’s solo gallery presentations are particularly of note. Honoring artists of long-standing—and some overdue—recognition across a wide range of mediums, they resemble tightly curated, pop-up exhibitions on topics from New York’s hamster wheel of gentrification to an institutional critique of the fair itself. Mark these six artists’ booths on your Frieze New York 2022 itinerary.
