Frieze NY 2013

Frieze NY 2013 was overall a great fair. It was held again in a large tent on Randall’s Island, a boat ride away from Eastern Manhattan. With over 180 exhibitors taking part this year, the fair is definitely one of the larger ones out there. Some of the best galleries from across the world lined up to join Frieze this year, which took place from May. 10-13.

The presence of Middle Eastern art at the fair was strengthened by the participation of Dubai’s Third Line and Beirut’s Sfeir Semler Gallery. Sfeir Semler Gallery had a great booth location close to the fair’s entrance. The booth included works by some of the gallery’s star artists including Akram Zaatari, Yto Barrada, and Khalil Rabah.
