Posthumous Revivals and Emerging Artists Top Sales at Frieze New York’s 2023 Edition

The 11th edition of Frieze New York returned to the Shed in Hudson Yards this week, opening on Wednesday for VIP fairgoers and running until Sunday. Hosting 68 galleries this year, the fair’s opening hours were buzzing, likely a showing of strength for New York’s art market over that of London and Hong Kong.

On the opening day, sales were brisk, with mega-dealers disclosing seven-figure deals and smaller gallery’s seeing investments in newer names. Among the fair’s top sales, which are all self-reported, came from Pace, which sold out its solo booth of works by Brooklyn-based painter Robert Nava (for prices between $30,000 and 80,000) and David Zwirner, who sold multipled works by Suzan Frecon ($50,000–$500,000).
