The Frieze and 1-54
This past weekend was all about art. We went to see the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair on Friday evening and then went full on Saturday to the Frieze on Governors Island. There are other shows around the city but that is all we did and that is plenty! It is one of our favorite spring weekends.
1-54 takes place at Pioneer Works in Red Hook. It is a small show but I have always enjoyed it. Here are some of the top hits on my end.
Gideon Appah who installed the entire space with memories of his Grandmothers’ home. Really great.
Always a fan of sculpture this is Victor Ekpuk
We took the ferry over to the Frieze which is completely part of the entire experience. The first piece we saw when we entered the North side of the tent was the Hockney installation at Pace Gallery. All of these pieces were done on an Ipad. So good!
Keith Haring work is iconic.
Tina Barney did a series of photographs of known people in their own space. This is George Condo the artist.
Shin Sung Hy from a gallery out of Seoul
I love this. Robert Therrien.
Martin Boyce is all about architecture and design.
Jesse Wine, that we added to our collection.
Jack Pierson. I found this piece extremely relevant to the times.
Lunch is so civilized at the Frieze at Prime Meats.
Vik Muniz giving a nod to Hilma Af Klint who will have a retrospective at the Guggenheim this fall.
LOVE from a Japanese artist.
The last look at Hockney before leaving the fair. Such a good day!
