Like so many other major art events, Frieze was forced to call off its New York fair—scheduled to be held in early May on Randall’s Island in Manhattan—due to the global health situation. However, the event is offering participating galleries the chance to show their wares online instead.
From May 8-15 (with a preview from May 6-7), Frieze New York’s organizers will launch a virtual fair, allowing galleries the chance to have their own individual viewing rooms, where they can showcase up to 30 works each. The site is also using augmented reality technology to offer users the ability to virtually view artworks to scale on their own walls. Plus, it will host video tours from curators of the fair’s special sections, including a special tribute to Chicago artists and a look at overlooked figures from the 20th century.
More than 200 galleries will present major works by established and emerging artists in a virtual gallery space as part of the Frieze New York edition. Among them, Fortes D’Aloia will be present. To register for the online viewing, click here.
