Frieze Runs Hot This Year

Known for its more cutting edge contemporary international art, Frieze New York has pivoted this year to include some historical work, which has opened it up to even more East End regulars.

Pace Gallery goes all in with Keith Sonnier’s neon works, which makes for a cohesive and welcoming booth. Mary Heilmann, who always seems to be represented at the fair by at least a couple of works, has two small paintings displayed at 303 Gallery. Lynda Bengalis is in evidence at Cheim & Read’s booth with a range of sculptures from different times and with varying compositions and hues from subtle to intense. David Salle, Cindy Sherman, Eric Fischl and Richard Prince are all sampled at the Skarstedt booth. Robert Gober shows a few pieces at Matthew Marks Gallery.

Among the old guard, Robert Motherwell has a great number of collages and paintings at Bernard Jacobson Gallery. Lee Bontecou is represented with a significant sculpture at Levy Gorvy, Eykyn Maclean is showing James Rosenquist’s “Green Flash” and a “Mona Lisa” by Andy Warhol.

Sales reports have been optimistic. The fair is open through Sunday.
