Inside a 450m-long, snaking white tent designed by Brooklyn architects SO-IL, more than 180 international art galleries are exhibiting work – it is the largest Frieze event to date.
Originating in London – where its annual art fair has been running for a decade – Frieze is fast becoming a New York institution, attracting dealers from around the world.
Towering over the pavilion is LA artist Paul McCarthy’s huge inflatable red balloon dog – a nod to Jeff Koons. In addition to indoor exhibits, visitors can view the sculpture park by the East River waterfront, enjoy some celebrity spotting, and grab some lunch at one of several eateries.
Frieze New York runs from 10-13 May.
