NEW YORK, NY.- Frieze
announced the artists that will be participating in the Sculpture Park at Frieze New York 2013. The Sculpture Park overlooks the East River and sits adjacent to the main fair structure in the unique setting of Randalls Island Park, Manhattan.
The Sculpture Park at Frieze New York is selected by curator Tom Eccles from proposals by the fairs participating galleries. An opportunity to see a significant group of public-scale sculpture, the Sculpture Park at Frieze New York includes internationally recognized artists, both established and emerging.
New work made for the 2013 Sculpture Park includes Paul McCarthys Balloon Dog (2013), an 80-foot-high inflatable work, as well as pieces from: Fiona Connor, Style Guide Spa (2013); Saint Clair Cemin, Fotini (2013); Martha Friedman, Tongue Garden (2013); and Nick Van Woert, Primitive (2013). Also on show will be works by artists: Tom Burr, Tom Friedman, Andrea Lolis, Charles Long, Jason Meadows, Pae White and Franz West.
Tom Eccles commented: Building upon the success of last year, our aim for this new edition is to increase the ambition of the Sculpture Park program both in scope and scale. Placed in an exceptional location, the program will continue expanding visitors experience by displaying large outdoor sculptures in dialogue with ephemeral pieces. Both physical objects and works that help define our experience of the park itself, a space that offers both bucolic and urban conditions.
Frieze New York will take place May 1013, 2013 and will present over 180 of the worlds leading galleries. Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank.
