Who’s In and Who’s Out at Frieze New York 2017?

Get ready for the sixth edition.

As the big white tent that is Frieze New York prepares to set up shop on Randall’s Island for what will be its sixth edition, the fair has announced this year’s slate of exhibitors, featuring over 190 galleries from 30 countries on six continents.

There are two significant changes this year. The fair will be a day shorter than usual, running for four days, plus a VIP preview day. There are also slightly fewer dealers participating this time around, compared to the 202 that signed on in 2016.

“Frieze New York continues to evolve, and this year galleries are bringing presentations of greater breadth and quality than ever before, reflecting the diverse cultural interests of our audience,” said director Victoria Siddall, touting “the increased presence of 20th-century art” as well the fair’s presentation of emerging artists from around the globe.

Returning exhibitors include Gavin Brown’s Enterprise (New York), Tanya Bonakdar (New York), Matthew Marks Gallery (New York), Marian Goodman Gallery (New York), David Zwirner (New York), Mendes Wood DM (São Paulo), the Modern Institute (Glasgow), Foksal Gallery Foundation (Warsaw), Chantal Crousel (Paris), Sprüth Magers (Berlin), Acquavella (New York), and Skarstedt (New York). Notable omissions include Marianne Boesky (New York), Fergus McCaffrey, New York), Galerie kamel mennour (Paris), and Sperone Westwater (New York).

“Given our expansion in Chelsea, we needed some time to adjust to our great new space,” Marianne Boesky told artnet News via email. “We love Frieze and look forward to returning next year!”

First-time exhibitors include Bernard Jacobson Gallery (London), Eykyn MacLean (London and New York), Bridget Donahue (New York), On Stellar Rays (New York), Proyectos Ultravioleta (Guatemala City), and Castelli Gallery (New York), which has never shown at a New York fair before.

“For a long time, we felt that there was not really a need for a gallery in New York to do a fair in New York, but we changed our mind,” Barbara Bertozzi Castelli, the director of Castelli Gallery, told artnet News in a phone conversation. “The activity is really at the fair, more than at the gallery itself.”

The gallery also considered ADAA and the Armory Show for its New York debut, but chose Frieze mainly because it already shows at Frieze Masters in London.

For On Stellar Rays owner Candice Madey, Frieze was all about timing. The gallery will participate as usual at the Armory in March, but is adding Frieze to its 2017 calendar as a way to showcase Rochelle Feinstein ahead of her upcoming New York retrospective, which comes to the Bronx Museum of the Arts by way of Switzerland and Germany.

“It’s a bit of a homecoming for this work because she’s a New York-based artist and has been showing so much in Europe,” Madey told us. The fair will coincide with a presentation of new works by Feinstein at the gallery.

Looking ahead to May, Frieze promises works that engage with timely political and social issues. Expected highlights include a four-artist presentation by Galerie Lelong (New York) of historic and recent work by Alfredo Jaar, Nalini Malani, Hélio Oiticica, and Nancy Spero tackling media bias, the experiences of refugees, and other hot-button issues. Feminism will come to the fore at Salon 94 (New York) with Huma Bhabha, Francesca DiMattio, and Katy Grannan’s intersectional works.

Outside of the main gallery sector, High Line Art director and chief curator Cecilia Alemani will organize artist commissions and installations for Frieze Projects inspired, according to a statement, by “the act of watching and being watched,” particularly in the context of an art fair. The fair’s emerging gallery sector, Frame, will feature experimental single artist booths from 17 dealers from 13 countries. An additional 30 young galleries will be featured in Focus.

This year’s 31-gallery-strong Spotlight sector, curated by Toby Kamps of Houston’s Menil Collection, features key moments in art history after 1960. Works by artists such as Thomas Kovachevich (Callicoon Fine Arts, New York); Felipe Jesus Consalvos (Fleisher / Ollman, Philadelphia); Barbara Chase-Riboud (Michael Rosenfeld Gallery, New York); and Dom Sylvester Houédard (Richard Saltoun Gallery, London) will all be on view. On the whole, the fair is pushing to represent more 20th-century art.
