FRIEZE NEW YORK 2016
BY ArtCoWo Press © 5 - 17 - 16
Frieze New York 2016 broke record attendance and sales. The New York art scene was explosive bringing contemporary works and galleries from all over the world. Labeled as New York's most important art fair boasted big name galleries and newcomers like, A Gentil Carioca from Rio and 303 Gallery from New York.
The energy of the auditorium was electric and there seems to be no slowing down of interest in the arts, a sign that the economy is jumping back. However Sotheby's has reported recently that art sales are starting to level off.
There was plenty of art talks and site specific installations this year as well as famous artists of the past held by some of the most prominent dealers. With a great addition of Frieze Education which brought schools and groups together for workshops it made the fair more than just a fair this year. The creation of an art education tour for all ages has impact and merit well beyond simply selling art at humdrum fairs.
