New York, NY (PRWEB) May 06, 2015
TOWN Residential, New York’s leading luxury real estate services firm, is proud to be an official sponsor of Frieze New York, held in a bespoke structure on New York’s Randall’s Island from May 14–17, 2015.
One of the few fairs to focus on contemporary art and living artists, Frieze New York showcases more than 190 contemporary galleries that represent the most exciting artists working today from around the globe. Now in the fourth year, this year’s fair will feature highly anticipated solo and special presentations that promise to be focal points, including: Philippe Parreno (Pilar Corrias, London); T.J. Wilcox (Gladstone Gallery, New York); Giuseppe Penone (Marian Goodman, New York); Lesley Vance (David Kordansky, Los Angeles); Richard Tuttle (Pace, New York); and Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (The Third Line, Dubai); two-artist presentations by Marilyn Minter and Laurie Simmons (Salon 94, New York) and John McCracken and Franz West (David Zwirner, New York); and a new installation by Iran do Espírito Santo (Fortes Vilaca, São Paulo).
The 2015 fair introduces Spotlight, a new section for solo presentations of 20th-century art which has been a critically acclaimed feature at Frieze Masters in London. Advised by curator Adriano Pedrosa and featuring 16 galleries, Spotlight explores unexpected positions from established artists and presents new research into art from emerging territories, as well as significant 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, among many others.
The Frieze Projects program this year at Frieze New York will be curated by Cecilia Alemani and will feature six new artworks, inside, outside and even underneath the fair on Randall’s Island. The artists participating include: Korakrit Arunanondchai, Pia Camil, Samara Golden, Aki Sasamoto and Allyson Vieira. The program will also feature a special tribute to the Flux-Labyrinth, an installation conceived in Berlin in 1976 by George Maciunas, in collaboration with other Fluxus artists. For this homage at Frieze New York, Amalia Pica, John Bock and the collective Gelitin will create new environments, which turn the experience of traversing the space into a joyful and surreal exercise.
TOWN Residential’s sponsorship of Frieze New York further enhances our commitment to the arts while also providing access for TOWN’S Representatives and clients, many of whom have an affinity for arts, to experience unique and educational programming such as Frieze Talks. Bringing together leading artists, writers and cultural commentators, Frieze Talks 2015 is programmed by Tom Eccles (Executive Director, Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College) and Christy Lange (Associate Editor, frieze). This year’s participants include Paul McCarthy (artist), Thelma Golden (Director and Chief Curator, Studio Museum in Harlem, New York) and Jerry Saltz (Critic, New York magazine), among many others.
Through TOWN Experience, a dynamic first of its kind initiative, TOWN Residential extends our marketing platform beyond print and digital and brings the TOWN brand into real time through exclusive, visible and cutting edge events that provide TOWN Representatives with genuine opportunities to network, entertain and engage. As part of our comprehensive sponsorship with Frieze New York, TOWN Representatives will enjoy access throughout the show as well as exclusive events such as the Whitney Champagne Reception and private preview of the fair.
