in Frieze | 21 FEB 19

Curators Andrew Bonacina and Laura McLean-Ferris will again oversee Frame, the fair’s celebrated section for emerging galleries aged 10 years or younger, showing museum-quality solo artist projects. 

Bonacina and McLean-Ferris said, As advisers to the Frame section, we are delighted to have contributed to the introduction of new galleries to the section from cities such as Florence, Shanghai, Dallas, and Vancouver. There were also many exciting proposals from galleries who are returning to the fair from Bogota, Guatemala City, Sao Paulo, and Buenos Aires.

Frame showcases new work being made in a great variety of global contexts, making it an excellent area for discovering emerging galleries, artists, and scenes. Within the section are a number of exciting proposals from artists, including new multimedia work by Leslie Thornton which includes the artist’s research at CERN and details of her family’s involvement in a ‘terrible project’ during the 1940s, new woven works by Diedrick Brackens exploring the figure of the 19th century Black cowboy, and a 1974 film installation by Takahiko Iimura, an early example of a work employing celluloid as material.
