7 Art Trends at Frieze New York 2014

Frieze New York 2014 returned from May 9 to 12 for a third consecutive year, taking residence once more on Randall’s Island, flanked between Northern Manhattan and Queens on East river. Tortuously accessible from either a ferry ride leaving just south of the United Nations building (East Mid Town); a school bus journey starting opposite Guggenheim Museum; or via an elaborate drive thought some of New York’s most convoluted overpasses – the journey to Frieze already imposes itself as a pilgrimage for art enthusiasts. Aptly enough, Randall’s Island is also noted for housing several sport fields and a psychiatric asylum, an anecdote thus foretelling of the experience waiting within the winding all-white tent, designed by Brooklyn-based architect duo SOL-IL and the scores of art bounty to behold, simultaneously testing one’s physical stamina and intellectual capacities.

Gesture in Collecting : In conversation with Donald Browne, art dealer at Papier 14

Papier 2014 set up its art fair tent this year on a vacant lot in downtown Montreal, one block away from the city’s centre point at corner of Ste-Catherine and Clark streets. Organised by AGAC (Association des Galleries d’Art Contemporain – The Association of Contemporary Art Galleries), the fair comprises a total of 44 commercial galleries from across Canada, exclusively selling works on paper. Donald Browne has been an exhibitor at Papier with his own gallery since its first edition in 2007, and acted as AGAC’s treasurer and member of the executive council for the past four years. He exchanges a few words with M-KOS about Papier 2014.

MKOS: Have you been participating in Papier since it started?

Donald Browne [DB]: Well, I’ve been a part of organizing the fair since the last four years, but yes I’ve been doing Papier with my gallery since seven years ago, when we were just 18 galleries at Westmount Square. We just had a table and a billboard behind us. It was very simple. But then when we started to get a little more confident, with a little grant from the Quebec government, and now it’s much more feasible to put on an event like this. In 2007 it was a very initial attempt at an art fair in Montreal, and with a snowball effect we finally arrived in a tent like this with 44 galleries. It’s really grown over the last seven years, I really encouraged that we have this kind of event here, it’s important for people, for the social interaction, as well as for people understanding that these things are for sale, and it’s an exciting event to prepare for.

Volta 2014 counted a no-mean-feat 20,000 visitor attendance to its four day long SoHo-based art fair, uniquely consisting of solo artist-presentation gallery booths. Sojourning for a second year in its current Mercer Street location, the seven-year-old fair certainly was quick to make a impression on the busy Armory week calendar, from establishing its trademark white-on-black branding to boasting a veritable star-studded string of patrons from Israel, The Emirates as well as numerous local Big Apple-ers.
