On Sunday, Frieze Week in New York drew to close after five full days of fair going, gathering, performance, celebration.
This was certainly a Frieze Week like none other, as we returned to the worlds of culture with a mixture of jitters and exhilaration to be once again mixing it up and taking it all in. With this return, we had a chance to revel in what we’ve all been missing for so many months, and also, take stock of how we reimagine our cultural life and conversations moving forward.
Throughout the week, Neuehouse Madison Square and Fotografiska were a home for new voices, new ideas, and new perspectives. We heard writer, editor and gallery director Antwaun Sargent discuss how the dialogue in the art world both is and is not shifting. We reflected what was lost when our stages went dark while watching the Philip Glass Ensemble perform for the first time in over a year. We felt the joy of the Wide Awakes’ mission. We got to watch, up close, as the artist Juan Miguel Marin created magic in real-time to a live score. We reconnected with our communities and remembered why the give-and-take is so essential. Here are some highlights of a remarkable week.
