The only members of the hoi polloi who visit Randall’s Island are Buckley private school boys—the tykes of the truly rich and sometimes famous—during sports hours. But the Frieze Art Fair lures the chic culture vultures to Randall’s Island Park from the 10th to the 13th to check out pieces from a careful selection from over 180 galleries from around the globe, a private preview of which will be held today. In addition to art, the fair will feature Frieze Sounds (three commissioned audio works), a sculpture park, and talks with leading artists, writers and cultural commentators. There are also fancy and funky food pop-ups like Sant Ambroeus, The Fat Radish, Mission Chinese and Roberta’s.
Randall’s Island Park, private viewing 6-9pm, by invitation only.
