Frieze New York 2022
May 2022

Frieze New York turns ten this year, but it’s still only the fair’s second year at its new home: The Shed. The privilege of Frieze taking place in a setting known for its world-class programming and extraordinary architecture has informed the contents of this issue of Frieze Week, which focuses on the pioneering work of museums, institutions and project spaces across the city. We celebrate the work of Electronic Arts Intermix, which will screen a selection of videos from its archive at the fair (p.6); salute A.I.R. Gallery as it turns 50 (p.10); meet some of the curators who are leading change at spaces from Dia to The Kitchen (p.14); and look ahead to the John Giorno Foundation’s programming at the late artist’s house on the Bowery (p.58). Our cover is by the Ukrainian, New York-based photographer Sergiy Barchuk. It was originally intended to run alongside a piece on the sometimes-decadent ritual of art dinners (p.8), but, with war in Ukraine, and famine in Yemen, maybe it also functions as a kind of memento mori: a reminder to enjoy the food on your plate while you can, before it perishes. Tuck in.
