NEW YORK, NY.- Frieze announced the Frieze Projects program of specially commissioned works to be realized at Frieze New York, 2013. The fair is located in the unique setting of Randall’s Island Park, overlooking the East River.

The five artists participating in the Frieze Projects program this year are: Liz Glynn, Maria Loboda, Mateo Tannatt, Andra Ursuta, Marianne Vitale. The program will also feature a special tribute to legendary artistrun restaurant Food, originally conceived by Gordon Matta-Clark and Carol Godden in 1971, and an original text by novelist Ben Marcus. The Frieze Projects program is realized annually at Frieze New York and is curated by Cecilia Alemani.

The program includes seven specially commissioned projects, three of which are situated outdoors in Randall’s Island Park. The participating artists have been invited to conceive site-specific works that either react to the exceptional location of Randall’s Island or engage with the experience of the fair. Some projects confront the unique landscape of the site by inserting incongruous presences within the island’s landscape, including a color-coded garden, a speakeasy, and a cemetery. Others play with quotidian acts via folkloric traditions and formalist preoccupations. Together the seven projects envision new, temporary spaces for participation in everyday rituals.

Cecilia Alemani said of the program, ‘For the second edition of Frieze Projects in New York, I asked the commissioned artists to intervene in the fair and its surrounding landscape by staging challenging works that play with everyday habits and collective behaviors. Basic actions such as eating, drinking, speaking and praying serve as the starting point for a series of sitespecific installations that engage the ritualistic dimension of the fair and the unique landscape of the island.’

Frieze Projects presents newly commissioned artworks by international artists. The artists commissioned by Frieze Projects will use Frieze New York as a site to realize ambitious ideas.

Frieze New York will take place May 10–13, 2013 and will present over 180 of the world’s leading galleries. Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank.
