The Frame section at Frieze New York brings together some of the world’s most experimental, imaginative and talked-about rising stars, representing emerging art scenes from around the world.  

Galleries ages 10 years or younger will bring solo presentations of new or never-before-seen work. Highlights include artists pushing the medium and subject matter of painting, historic and immersive installations and works which use fantasy to interrogate existential questions. 

Urbanism & Environment

The Chinese artist Yan Xinyue (Capsule Shanghai, Booth FR2) explores tension in everyday life in the context of rapid urban development, through her vibrant and fantastical paintings. 

Emma McIntyre (Château Shatto, FR1) explores the possibilities of paint as a medium through her abstract representations of weather, visual environment and memory.

In her work The Garden of Desolation, Homa Delvaray (Dastan Gallery, FR10) deconstructs the Persian garden – how it is currently viewed and its historical significance, using words and letters as visual tools to highlight the need to become aware of semiotic changes in our environment.

Lying at the intersection of new surrealism and biomorphic art, Rebecca Sharp’s (Sé Gallery, FR7) sculptures and paintings present an otherworldly, spiritual vision of the world we live in. 

Ivan Cheng’s (Édouard Montassut, FR5) installation brings together entertainment and comedy to reflect on the performativity of chance, unpicking French gambling laws and the politics of wealth distribution. 

Building on decades of autobiographical work and historical research, Marsha Pels (Lubov Gallery, FR11) presents works from her series “Dead Mother, Dead Cowboy” (2006–08), transforming found materials into monuments to loss. 

In Tania Candiani’s (Instituto de Visión, FR4) new video, painting and sculpture, the artist translates indigenous, African and European systems of knowledge into a more optimistic vision of the present.

Fantasy & Illusion

Kye Christensen-Knowles’s (Lomex Gallery, FR3) work mixes a variety of styles, with his art drawing inspiration from high modernism, American graphic novels, science fiction and Renaissance painting. 

An immersive installation by Cajsa von Zeipel (Company Gallery, FR8) questions ideas of beauty, sexuality and gender identity using a provocative and futuristic art style. 

Transcending optical illusion, Kate Mosher Hall’s (Hannah Hoffman Gallery, FR9) paintings are deeply concerned with the spiritual conditions of looking, and how it can expand or limit our sense of reality. 

Since the 1970s, influential Chicago artist Judith Geichman (Regards, FR6) has used the art of abstraction to explore the possibilities of painting.
