The Frieze Art show is taking place this week Downtown at Lexington and 25th Street. An extension of the Outsider Art Fair, many promising talents have exhibited there in the past. Now in its third year popularity has spread and more and more, the fair is gaining acceptance alongside other reputable similar events. Taking a similar approach to Frieze London, the focus is on contemporary art. Running from May 9- May 12, with an advance pre-show exhibit May 8, it will be held on Randalls Island, Manhattan. Tickets are available from February on each year at http://www.friezenewyork.com Many contemporary gallerists will be exhibiting there, totaling this year, 190 participants.

The founders are also responsible for another show in Southampton and were recently interviewed by ArtInfo.

“We’ve been running our Art Southampton fair for the last two years in the summer,” Nick Korniloff, who founded the fair with Mike Tansey and Brian Tyler, told ARTINFO. “A lot of our collectors out in the Hamptons, they’ve always asked us, ‘When are you going to do a show in the city?’ We looked at March dates then we started to talk to some of the dealers and they really thought that May was the great period of time to have a fair that complemented the auctions but also was complementary to Frieze.”“We’ve been running our Art Southampton fair for the last two years in the summer,” Nick Korniloff, who founded the fair with Mike Tansey and Brian Tyler, told ARTINFO. “A lot of our collectors out in the Hamptons, they’ve always asked us, ‘When are you going to do a show in the city?’ We looked at March dates then we started to talk to some of the dealers and they really thought that May was the great period of time to have a fair that complemented the auctions but also was complementary to Frieze.”
