NEW YORK, NY.- Frieze New York will return to Randall’s Island Park, Manhattan from May 14 to 17, 2015. The fourth edition of the New York art fair will bring together over 190 of the world’s leading contemporary galleries, with 62 participants from the fair’s host city. For the fourth consecutive year, Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank.

Once again the fair will take advantage of its East River location and innovative structural design to showcase the most exciting contemporary galleries from around the globe. The 2015 fair introduces Spotlight, a new section for participating galleries that has been a critically acclaimed feature at Frieze Masters in London. Advised by curator Adriano Pedrosa, Spotlight will appear alongside the existing Frame and Focus sections of the fair as well as the critically acclaimed Projects, Talks, Sounds and Education programs.

Matthew Slotover and Amanda Sharp commented: 'The fourth edition promises to be the best yet, with a new section and some of the most well-regarded galleries joining an already strong list. We’re delighted that Frieze has been embraced by both the local gallery scene and the city alike and the introduction of Spotlight to New York this year should underline Frieze’s long-standing commitment to discovery. We’re looking forward to this year’s fair, our last as Directors, and handing over to Victoria Siddall, who becomes the new Director of Frieze New York in 2016.’

Participating Galleries
With a particularly strong showing of local galleries this year, those new to Frieze New York include: Acquavella (New York); Blum & Poe (Los Angeles), Clearing (New York/Brussels), Freedman Fitzpatrick (Los Angeles), JTT (New York), Matthew Marks Gallery (New York); McKee Gallery (New York); Pace (New York) and Skarstedt (New York).

At the same time, the 2015 edition of the fair will feature a strong global reach with galleries from 33 territories including: Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Lebanon, Mexico, The Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Poland, Romania, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, UAE, UK and the USA.

Spotlight, Frame and Focus
Demonstrating Frieze’s commitment to discovery, a new addition to the 2015 fair is Spotlight, a section curated by Adriano Pedrosa dedicated to solo artist presentations of work made in the 20th century. Previous iterations of Spotlight have been shown at Frieze Masters in London, and the New York edition will share the same impulse to expand understanding of the 20th century by exploring unexpected positions from established artists, new research into artists from emerging territories and significant early work from overlooked artists. Rasheed Araeen (Aicon Gallery, New York), Lynn Hershman Leeson (Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco & Waldburger Wouters, Brussels), Howardena Pindell (Garth Greenan Gallery, New York), Carolee Schneemann (Hales, London) and Ibrahim El-Salahi (Vigo, London) are all included in the first New York edition of Spotlight.

Adriano Pedrosa said: ‘After three editions of Spotlight at Frieze Masters in London, the section arrives in New York. The focus remains in the 20th century, with a particular emphasis on the 1960s and 1970s, and a strong presence of women artists and artists working outside Europe and America. Spotlight New York brings diversity and plurality to insular vantage points and there seems to be much ground to cover for future editions.’

Frame is dedicated to galleries under eight years old presenting solo shows and remains committed to showing some of the most exciting new galleries from around the world. Additions to this year’s list include Antenna Space (Shanghai) showing Liu Ding; Mathew Gallery (Berlin) showing Than Hussein Clark; and Supplement (London) with Philomene Pirecki. The advisors to Frame in 2015 are curators Raphael Gygax and Jacob Proctor, who is a new addition to the team this year.

Focus is a section for galleries founded in or after 2003. Bringing to the fair curated projects and solo stands specially conceived for Frieze New York, this section includes some of the most forward-thinking galleries working today. A number of these galleries have previously been exhibitors in the Frame section of the fair, including Bureau (New York); Carlos/Ishikawa (London); and Real Fine Arts (New York), which further underlines the fair’s commitment to fostering a community of galleries throughout all stages of development. Galleries participating in Focus that are new to Frieze New York include: Chi-Wen Gallery (Taipei); Foxy Production (New York); Frutta (Rome); Hunt Kastner (Prague); Instituto De Visión (Bogotá); Silberkuppe (Berlin) and Travesia Cuatro (Guadalajara/Madrid).
