Galleries along 26th Street to host a free, all-access street party during inaugural edition of the Frieze Art
As a festive community response to Chelsea Night, late openings during Frieze NY, the galleries and arts organizations on 26th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues are throwing a block party, from 6 to 9pm.
NEW YORK, NY.- On Saturday May 5th, the galleries along 26th Street are hosting a free, all-access street party to welcome visitors to the inaugural New York edition of the Frieze Art Fair (May 3–7), the new, must-attend event on the international contemporary art calendar. DJ Hannah Bronfman and band Dreamshow to perform.

As a festive community response to Chelsea Night, late openings during Frieze NY, the galleries and arts organizations on 26th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues are throwing a block party, from 6 to 9pm. With the block transformed into a pedestrian plaza, visitors are encouraged to explore the exhibitions on view in 26th Street’s 35+ participating galleries and project spaces, enjoy live music and congregate and linger while sampling culinary delights from the city’s top food trucks. Galleries will be open until 8pm. Food trucks and entertainment will continue until 9pm. The event was organized in partnership with neighborhood organizations Art Station, Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation and Friends of the High Line with sponsors including STOYN, Brooklyn Brewery, Artlog, The Serve and Hotel Americano, along with media sponsor artnet.

Hannah Bronfman, a celebrity DJ with that rare eclectic ear for party music, will keep the crowd percolating, while the cascading, soulful synthesizer sound of Brooklyn buzz band Dreamshow provides the live climax. The promise of surprise treats from STOYN ice cream and souvenir branded totes from ArtLog/Grey Area encourage visitors to thoroughly explore the block’s multilevel gallery addresses, while easy access to the High Line both helps flow and allows for a top-down view of the action.

We are proud to be collaborating on this project with both Art Station and Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. Art Station are innovators in art and promotion and are rapidly becoming known as New York’s most creative and stylish producers of pop-up exhibitions and events. Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation is dedicated to providing disadvantaged urban youth with significant arts exposure and access to the arts, and to offer exhibition opportunities for underrepresented artists and artists of color. With their expertise, the goodwill of the sponsors, the enthusiastic cooperation of the Friends of the High Line and the commitment of the participating galleries, the 26th Street Block Party promises to be one of the standout events of a packed art week and the start of a new Chelsea tradition.
