Guests enjoyed after-hours access to exhibitions including a pop-up by Delhi-based gallery Nature Morte and a display of large-scale finger paintings.
On Tuesday, April 30, artnet Galleries kicked off Frieze Week festivities with a celebratory night at the High Line Nine, one of the latest additions to Chelsea’s art and design scene.
Jump-starting an event-filled fair week, guests enjoyed cocktails while touring the European-style arcade space, which is home to a unique mix of both well-established and up-start galleries, including Kasmin, Hollis Taggart and Filo Sofi Arts.
“Ritual In Pairing,” a solo exhibition of works by finger-painter Iris Scott, presented by Filo Sofi Arts, was a crowd favorite, as were Paul Villinski‘s intricate sculptures on view at Morgan Lehman Gallery. Meanwhile, it was a homecoming of sorts for Nature Morte. The Delhi-based gallery, which closed its original New York location in 1988, hosted a solo pop-up exhibition of work by painter Tanya Goel.
Beyond art-ogling, design enthusiasts also toured the space, which is designed by Studio MDA and uniquely combines elements of a museum, a traditional gallery, and the public space.
