Spring is here. Coming out of a period of such challenge and loss, a moment of fresh growth feels long-awaited. Turning 30 this year, Frieze too is looking to the new. In this issue, you’ll meet our new Director of Americas, and discover some great spots around Frieze New York’s new host venue,The Shed. There’s a profile of emerging star Precious Okoyomon, recipient of this year’s Frieze Artist Award, and an interview with Victoria Rogers, a collector who’s helped raise up new artistic projects and voices–photographed for us by the young talent Davey Adesida. You’ll also find a special feature celebrating Sarah Lewis, the inspirational founder of the Vision & Justice Project, from which stemmed an issue of Aperture in 2016, and some of her amazing co-collaborators. Our back page features an interview with Kehinde Wiley, whose recent Public Art Fund commission is just a walk away from the fair. The work’s title sums up so much of what I think we’re feeling this springtime: Go.
