For the three years that Frieze has come to NY, Gary Pini has kindly been my hook up to get into the press preview. A game we play at art fairs is spotting unintentional themes that sometimes emerge.
Gary started taking photos of guitars & cats, & half way though the massive quarter-mile tent, we noticed there was also a gazillion other animals.
When I looked at my photos from the day, I noticed that I’d been unconsciously picking up on mirrors, orange & neon, sometimes together.
Mirror works Simon Fugiwara, two Jim Lambie’s, and Zhan Wang.
In this neon orange set are Greg Bogin, Possibly my fave Erik Parker ever , Slavs And Tatars, Sarah Lucas, & of course Barry McGee.
Another fantastic Yinka Shonibare MBE to feature guns.
Another huge McGee.
Detail from a massive Kara Walker.
Two Jack Pierson's.
& finally a perfect a Boris Lurie to end with.
