Take a stroll through the aisles of the third edition of the annual Frieze New York art fair on Randall’s Island this week and the commerce, while discreet, will nevertheless be palpable. The VIP preview day on Thursday is all about business. Millions of dollars worth of art will be sold, or put on reserve for future sale. Dealers will sell artworks not on view at the fair based solely on jpegs popped up on iPad screens. And the seeds of future deals will be planted. Less obvious, but just as important, is the art fair’s overall economic impact on New York City. Read More

Boat trips and rock concerts, soccer goals and jungle gyms. This year, fairgoers will be more aware than ever of Frieze New York’s unique location on Randall’s Island as seven artists respond to the tent’s surroundings. Frieze Projects, the section of the British-born art fair devoted to specially commissioned artworks, will feature site-specific work by Darren Bader, Eduardo Basualdo, Eva Kotátková, Marie Lorenz, Koki Tanaka and Naama Tsabar. Additionally, Projects curator Cecilia Alemani, director of High Line’s art programs, will pay tribute to a historical participatory work, as she has in previous editions. For the third iteration of Frieze New York, she will reincarnate artist Allen Ruppersberg’s Al’s Grand Hotel, a temporary, fully operational hotel originally created in 1971 on Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard.

Frieze New York is returning for its third edition in 2014, drawing 192 galleries from 28 countries to its big, bright white tent on Randall’s Island from May 9 to 12. The London-born fair appears to have taken hold in its new city, with a consistent number of local galleries returning—53 New York dealers will show at the next edition—along with some notable newcomers. “What’s nice to see is we’ve added Barbara Gladstone this year, who’s a great, stellar foundation of a community in New York,” Frieze co-director Amanda Sharp told The Observer. Among the New York galleries coming back for another year are Luhring Augustine, Jack Shainman, Paul Kasmin and Marian Goodman, who basically won Frieze New York 2013 by staging a Tino Sehgal performance piece in her booth.
