The Best Booths at Frieze New York, From a Pouncing Tiger to a Meta Reflection on Consumerism

For its 12th edition, Frieze New York has once again returned to the Shed, the arts center in Hudson Yards. With 68 exhibitors, the fair, which opened to VIPs on Wednesday morning, was the first held since Frieze acquired the Armory Show, its main New York competitor. That should have lent the event some extra excitement, but the preview felt a bit subdued—perhaps due to post–Venice Biennale fatigue has now made its way across the Atlantic. Still, there was a steady stream of visitors throughout the day, and several blue-chip dealers reported strong sales.

Many exhibitors went with solo presentations—an unusual move in a fair setting, where group presentations are the norm. And some of the younger galleries, particularly the ones in the Focus section, brought more daring work than is typical for a selling event like this one.
