Frieze NYC 2022 Recap


As the cultural home to New York’s buzzing creative community, we spent another unforgettable Frieze Week in partnership with the art fair.

The fourth year of Frieze New York brought ten days of events and experiences to NeueHouse and our sister brand Fotografiska, as we celebrated expression and innovation within art, technology, commerce and culture. Both venues shimmered with music, colors, fashion and conversation.

From concerts and exhibition openings to conversations, the week of activity centered the artists whose imagined new realities have transformed culture and, in turn, the world. We kicked off the week honoring the legacy of Black women in visual culture with the BLACK VENUS opening at Fotografiska New York, followed by our very first Fête, a night of delicious revelry, culinary wonder, and incredible fashion throughout the museum, Chapel Bar, and our brand new restaurant, Verо̄nika (which opens to the public in just a few weeks!). NeueHouse lit up with an impromptu performance by George Clinton, following an incredible artist panel where the godfather of Funk shared behind-the-scenes stories from his 60+ year musical career, and aural happy hours brought a host of characters to the Gallery Bar every night. Thank you to everyone who joined us for this perfect summer kickoff.
