International Art, Soccer, and a Temporary Hotel:
Deutsche Bank Is Main Sponsor of Frieze New York

From A to Z, from Air de Paris to Zwirner – a look at the list of exhibitors at the third Frieze New York suffices to realize that the world’s most important galleries will be present once again on Randall’s Island this year. More than 190 participants from around 30 countries will be on hand in the fair’s tent on the small island in the East River affording a view of the Manhattan skyline. Naturally, the host city will be amply represented, with a total of 53 galleries – including Gavin Brown, Gladstone, and Perrotin – from New York. Nevertheless, there is a trend toward more galleries from the West Coast; the young art fair is becoming increasingly important as a meeting point for the entire U.S. art scene.

Like the Frieze London, the New York edition is much more than just a sales show. Both art fairs offer an ambitious accompanying program consisting of music, films, educational programs, and most notably the Frieze Projects. This offer convinced Deutsche Bank, which has not only been involved in the London parent fair for a decade, but has sponsored Frieze New York from the very beginning. This year, the fair wants to be even more accessible and is offering students more than 1,000 discounted tickets.   

Frame, the Frieze section for young galleries presenting selected individual positions, is again offering visitors numerous possibilities to discover and rediscover artists. Galeria Jaqueline Martins from São Paulo, for example, is showing installations and photographic works by Regina Vater, one of the proponents of the Brazilian Tropicália movement. While the Berlin Galerie Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler is showing graphic paintings in shades of gray by the young New York artist Avery Singer, New York-based Bureau is presenting Neo-Symbolist sculptures by Lionel Maunz, which explore violence and loss. Clages from Cologne is featuring Claus Richter. In his films and performance, the Frankfurt artist draws on influences ranging from Disney movies and musicals to Romantic art.

Free time is the theme of this year’s Frieze Projects, curated once again by Cecilia Alemani. The projects engage with the actual situation on Randall’s Island, a park-like island with sports facilities that is a popular outing spot. This year, another legendary art project is being reconstructed. While last year a new edition of Gordon Matta-Clark’s famous restaurant FOOD enthused audiences and critics, this time an entire hotel will open on the island: a reconstruction of Allen Ruppersberg’s Al’s Grand Hotel (1971) will accommodate guests throughout the fair.

Seven international artists were invited to realize site-specific works in the fair tent and outdoor area. The Argentinian Eduardo Basualdo is transforming the large meadow in front of the tent into a surreal soccer field. Czech artist Eva Kotátková, who is represented in the Deutsche Bank Collection, is installing a jungle gym. And New York-based artist Mary Lorenz is organizing alternative boat trips exploring the shores of the island – a perfect excursion for a beautiful spring day in New York.
