Frieze Week Re-cap

It has officially been a week since the beginning of art fair madness sparked last Thursday in New York by the arrival of Frieze Art Fair on Randall's Island Park. By that I obviously mean it has officially been a week since I have been non-stop running around to fair after fair, opening after opening, party after party and am now back to normal levels of manageable stress. Now that's not to say I didn't have a good time because trust me, I had an amazing time and I would never trade it for anything but if you've ever been to a series of art fairs jammed packed in several days then you probably know what I'm talking about when I say that my body was just physically drained after day four.  

I now come to you refreshed, re-energized and completely re-inspired by all of the incredible, powerful, kind of weird, sometimes bad, but always bad ass art that I saw over those four days. Starting off of course with the most talked about art opening recently, Kara Walker's monumental installation "A Sublety" in the Domino Sugar Factory. If you're in New York you HAVE to go see this and it's 100% free open until July 6th.

From here I will leave you with a series of photo's from a variety of fairs, openings and events. 

I hope your weekend is filled with the beautiful, the ugly and the always challenging.
