NEW YORK, NY.- The second edition of Frieze New York, the leading international contemporary art fair, takes place in New York’s Randall’s Island Park from May 10–13, 2013. Designed by SO – IL architects, Frieze New York is held in a unique bespoke structure overlooking the East River. For the second year, Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank.

World’s Leading Galleries
Frieze presents a careful selection of over 180 of the world’s leading contemporary art galleries. A strong contingent of US galleries is particularly in evidence, with 55 participating galleries from the fair’s host city. Galleries from the following 32 countries will show at Frieze New York 2013: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Turkey, UAE, UK and USA.

Emerging galleries will be participating in the Focus and Frame sections of the fair. Focus is for galleries less than ten years old debuting works previously unseen in an art-fair context. Focus galleries will show curated projects or solo stands conceived for Frieze New York. Frame is a section dedicated to galleries established less than six years ago and, this year, is supported by Joe Fresh. The Frame galleries selection is made on the basis of a proposed solo presentation and has been advised by curators Rodrigo Moura and Tim Saltarelli.

Frieze Projects New York
The program includes seven specially commissioned projects. 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. The Frieze Projects program is realized annually at Frieze New York and is curated by Cecilia Alemani.

The five artists participating in the Frieze Projects program this year are: Liz Glynn, Maria Loboda, Mateo Tannatt, Andra Ursuta and Marianne Vitale. The program will also feature a special tribute to legendary artist-run restaurant FOOD, originally conceived by Gordon Matta-Clark and Carol Goodden in 1971. With a menu that changes daily, the artists chefs at FOOD 1971/2013 are: Matthew Day Jackson, Carol Goodden, Tina Girouard and Jonathan Horowitz. The Frieze Projects program also features a literary project, Frieze Story, this year with an original text by novelist Ben Marcus.

Interviews with all the commissioned artists, plus a special homage to FOOD as a continuing source of inspiration, appear in the Frieze New York Catalogue, which is available to purchase at the fair, and via frieze.com, and is priced: $39.95 / £24.95

Frieze Talks
A daily program of presentations, panel discussions and conversations that takes place at Frieze New York, Frieze Talks features leading artists, writers and cultural commentators. Frieze Talks is programmed by editors of frieze Dan Fox (Co-Editor) and Sam Thorne (Associate Editor). This year’s participants include: Douglas Crimp, Lydia Davis, Joan Jonas and John Maus.

Frieze Sounds
For its second edition Frieze Sounds will feature three commissioned audio works by artists: Charles Atlas and the New Humans, Trisha Baga and Haroon Mirza. Frieze Sounds is programmed and curated by Cecilia Alemani and presented with BMW. The sound works will be premiered in the BMW 7 Series cars that operate the VIP shuttle services from Randall’s Island. Additionally, the works will be accessible at friezenewyork.com, available to download from May 10, 2013, and at a listening station within the fair.

Sculpture Park
The Sculpture Park at Frieze New York offers a rare opportunity to see a significant group of international work that is addressed on a public scale. The Sculpture Park is located along the waterfront of Randall’s Island overlooking the East River. New work made for the 2013 Sculpture Park includes Paul McCarthy ’s 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, Amygdalas (2013); and Nick Van Woert, Primitive (2013). Also on show will be works by artists: Tom Burr, Tom Friedman, Andreas Lolis, Charles Long, Jason Meadows, Pae White and Franz West. The Sculpture Park at Frieze New York is selected by curator Tom Eccles.

Education
A new addition to the fair this year, the Frieze New York Education space is sponsored by Deutsche Bank and will allow public school classes and museum groups to further explore the fair through workshops. Taking place in a dedicated structure, the program for the space is devised by Free Arts NYC and 826NYC who together will produce a dynamic context for students ranging from 4th–12th grade to explore notions of contemporary art and color. The guide and space will center around color theory and contemporary art. A creative documentation of the workshops will be made via a Frieze Education tumblr page.

Gary Hattem, President of the Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation, said of the Education program: ‘This new educational component is a chance for children to interact with art from around the world in their own backyard.’
