After having established Frieze Art Fair in London very successfully, Frieze is expanding its fair business to the other side of the pond this year. Frieze Art Fair New York brings the usual suspects to New York’s Randall’s Island. 180 of the world’s leading contemporary galleries show their artists and their works. The question is: how was it? Look for yourself, take a tour of the fair with this video.
The first edition of Frieze New York is housed in a bespoke structure designed by New York-based SO – IL Architects. Most of the participating galleries come from America and Europe and are regular exhibitors at Frieze London. There are also specific sections for younger galleries, Frame and Focus, and – as in London – there’s the Frieze Sculpture Park.
If you want to know what others think about the fair, here are three voices: Holland Cotter (New York Times), Jason Farago (Guardian), Jerry Saltz (Vulture). For more reviews, photos, videos of Frieze Art Fair New York 2012 use our VTV contemporary art search below.

PS: One of the most discussed topics in advance of the show was the question of how the wealthy art lovers get to the fair’s location on Randall’s Island – and back again. Let us know how you got there!
