Maurizio Cattelan Is Planning Mischief at Frieze New York This Year

Unwitting patrons may even receive a surprise work of art.

Frieze New York will return to Randall’s Island this year with one major scheduling change: instead of once again overlapping with the spring auctions (much to the chagrin of art advisers, journalists, and avid collectors alike), the fair will take place the week before they begin, from May 5–8, 2016. And fear not, for food favorites like Roberta’s Pizza will be back in full force.

What else can you look forward to this May? The always exciting Frieze Projects section, curated by Cecilia Alemani, will pay homage to New York’s Daniel Newburg Gallery, a downtown institution of the ’80s and early ’90s known for bringing legendary European artists to the United States. Maurizio Cattelan, the last artist to show in the Soho space before it shuttered in 1994, will create what Alemani cryptically describes as “something quite irreverent.”

The Projects section will also feature installations and interventions by Alex Da Corte, Anthea Hamilton, Heather PhillipsonEduardo Navarro, and David Horvitz, who will commission a “pickpocket” to roam the fair. Instead of stealing fairgoers cash, however, he’ll be depositing tiny sculptures into pockets and purses. “Hopefully this is the very first time you walk out of a fair with an artwork you didn’t pay for,” Alemani joked during a press conference.

202 galleries from 31 countries will exhibit in the fair’s four sections. Highlights include P.P.O.W‘s booth dedicated to David Wojnarowicz in advance of his upcoming retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art, as well as Rome’s Galleria Lorcan O’Neill, who will bring together Tracey Emin, Celia Hempton, Hanna Liden, and Rachel Whiteread to explore notions of intimacy and privacy.
