Every year, Frieze Projects New York Curator Cecilia Alemani pays tribute to an influential artist project or artists-run-space. This year’s Tribute commission pays homage to Il Teatro delle Mostre (‘Theatre of Exhibitions’), a groundbreaking performance series made in Rome in 1968. Works from the original event will be restaged alongside new works by Adam Pendleton and Ryan McNamara at P4, near the Frame section. Check out the exclusive video interview with Giosetta Fioroni - whose project for the original Teatro will be recreated at the fair - to learn more.

Tickets for Frieze New York are available here.
