The 2015 New York edition of London’s famed Frieze Art Fair is unlike any other art fair I’ve been to. While most art fairs take place inside a poorly lit convention center with dark steel beams traversing the ceilings, Frieze was quite the opposite. Stepping into the translucent tent instantly relaxes the mind. The sunlight is diffused through a semitransparent white roof, gently illuminating the vast open space …almost as if you were stepping into a James Turrell installation.

Since then, the fair has moved and is now held at a convention center in West Chelsea, Manhattan: The Shed.

The Fair
