Fair is more international this year and has more New Yorkers

Frieze New York, the British import art fair that set up a sprawling tent on Randall’s Island last year and packed it with galleries for its inaugural edition, will be back on the island for a second go, May 10 through 13. Today the fair released the list of the more than 180 galleries in the 2013 edition, which can be found below.

In a phone interview with The Observer, Frieze co-director Amanda Sharp pointed to the fact that the fair’s international sweep is growing incrementally. Last year brought galleries from 28 countries, this year it’s 32, including new exhibitors from South Africa (Capetown’s Whatiftheworld) and China (Leo Xu Projects, from Shanghai). “It’s a significant improvement that we have a broader geographical reach,” she said.

But she also sees as a particular sign of progress the increased number of New York galleries in this year’s fair—some 20 percent more than 2012. “I’m really thrilled about that,” Ms. Sharp said. “The challenge for us is for New Yorkers to own it, to take it into their heart and decide it’s their fair. Maybe this is a step in the right direction.” Newcomers include Paul Kasmin, Jack Shainman, Luhring Augustine, Murray Guy and Marian Goodman, whose presentation promises to be a talked-about one: a solo booth of Tino Sehgal, who makes performance-oriented artworks. “I’m very happy they are doing the fair, and excited about that project,” Ms. Sharp said.

Major international galleries who participated last year, like Gagosian, Hauser & Wirth and David Zwirner, are returning this year.

It’s also worth noting some New Yorkers in the fair’s younger sections. In the Frame section of solo booths, Algus Greenspon will show Adriana Lara and Clifton Benevento will present Michael E. Smith. A new New Yorker in the “Focus” section—special curated project booths from galleries under ten years old—is Ramiken Crucible.

It could be that New Yorkers are aware that the fair is making an effort to address the history of art in this city. Last year Frieze’s signature Projects series—artworks specially commissioned for the fair—included a booth where Bronx artist John Ahearn made his famous portrait busts. And this year Projects curator Cecilia Alemani has an even more ambitious project up her sleeve: an homage to Food, Gordon Matta-Clark’s famous Soho art restaurant from the 1970s. A member of Matta-Clark’s family will be overseeing things, and artists will be cooking in an area just outside of, but connected to the tent. Ms. Sharp said there may even be plans to replicate Food’s legendary pig roast.

Speaking of food, Randall’s Island isn’t exactly a culinary hotspot, and a highlight of last year’s edition was the quality and variety of restaurants Frieze invited under the tent, including Sant’Ambroeus, Frankies Spuntino and Roberta’s. Food tends to be lackluster at art fairs, but Frieze is upping the ante yet again this year, Ms. Sharp said. Most of last year’s vendors will be back and there will be some exciting additions—she wouldn’t say who just yet, but did offer, “We have a real coup.” (Could it be M. Wells?)

Don’t look for major changes to the Frieze big top—if it works, don’t fix it, is Ms. Sharp’s attitude, and the specially designed tent seemed to most people’s liking last year. Frieze has, she said, made a few tweaks to the layout of the galleries, and has done some work on the entrances. Those traveling out to the island by car will be happy to hear that both entrances will now allow access by car—last year it was just one, which caused some traffic problems.

While a ferry will once again run from 35th Street on Manhattan’s East Side, hoofing it may be the best option this year: the footbridge linking the island to Manhattan around East 103rd Street, closed for construction last year, will now be open.

It’s worth remembering that Frieze is a newcomer to the contemporary art fair landscape in New York. The Armory Show, which started in 1994 as the Gramercy International Art Fair, runs in March, and as with last year there are galleries that have switched to the Frieze tent, and to the May dates, and others that will exhibit in both events. Of the 24 new galleries in Frieze’s “galleries” section—i.e., ones that have larger booths in the fair—six (Rome’s Lorcan O’Neill, London’s Pilar Corrias, and New Yorkers CRG, Fredericks & Freiser, Peter Blum, Paul Kasmin and Jack Shainman) did the Armory Show last year. This time around, they will participate in both fairs. Others participating in both events are Galleria Continua, from San Gimignano, Italy; Kukje Gallery, from Seoul; London’s Lisson Gallery; Paris’s Praz-Delavallade; Dusseldorf’s Sies + Hoke; Los Angeles’s Susanne Vielmetter; New Yorkers David Zwirner, Marianne Boesky and Sean Kelly; and Sprüth Magers, which runs spaces in Berlin and London.

Speaking of musical chairs, a few galleries that were in Frieze last year but are not on this year’s list—London’s Corvi Mora, New York’s Kimmerich, Berlin’s Tanya Leighton, Zurich’s Eva Presenhuber and Tang Contemporary, from Beijing—are returning to the Armory, which they last participated in two years ago.

There is greater overlap with the Independent, which will stage its fourth edition concurrently with the Armory Show. A whopping 23 galleries—a full half of the Independent’s list—will also show at Frieze in May. The full list of galleries in Frieze New York follows below.
