Upcoming May Edition of Frieze New York to Feature 68 Participating Galleries

Frieze New York has unveiled the roster of 68 galleries set to showcase their works at the 2024 fair, which will run from May 1 to May 5 at the Shed.

The lineup for this year’s fair includes one less gallery than the previous year, maintaining the exclusive scale of the Frieze New York event since it relocated to the Shed. This iteration marks the first since Frieze’s acquisition of another prominent New York art fair, the Armory Show, in the previous summer. Unlike last year, the fair’s schedule does not overlap with Independent New York, which released its list of exhibitors the prior week.

The participant list boasts all four of the art world’s powerhouse galleries—Gagosian, Hauser & Wirth, Pace, and David Zwirner—alongside other prestigious galleries such as Gladstone Gallery, Xavier Hufkens, Gallery Hyundai, David Kordansky Gallery, Kurimanzutto, Massimo de Carlo, Mendes Wood DM, Victoria Miro, Thaddaeus Ropac, and White Cube.

Continuing its tradition, the fair will feature leading New York galleries, including Canada, Chapter NY, James Cohan, Casey Kaplan, Matthew Marks Gallery, and Ortuzar Projects, as well as internationally acclaimed dealers like Instituto de Vision, Proyectos Ultravioleta, Sprüth Magers, and Stevenson.

Christine Messineo, the director of Frieze Americas, commented, “Frieze is proud to assemble a selection of the world’s premier exhibitors in a city that boasts an impressive array of art institutions, galleries, and artists. Frieze New York aims to present a global outlook while highlighting the city’s outstanding galleries and honoring the non-profit organizations that contribute to the vibrant arts scene in New York.”

Out of the 68 galleries, 11 will be featured in the Focus section, which is dedicated to solo exhibitions of emerging or lesser-known artists. This year’s Focus section is curated by Lumi Tan, a New York-based curator who currently serves as the curatorial director for the Luna Luna art theme park in LA. Participating galleries in this section include Kapp Kapp, Patron, Cooper Cole, and Matthew Brown.

Tan shared, “This diverse group of artists spans generations, allowing audiences to discover those who have consistently brought to light narratives and viewpoints that have been marginalized by mainstream culture. It’s an exciting chance to unite artists who have been unwavering in their vision for decades with younger talents who resonate with similar artistic and social themes.”
