The Best Booths at Frieze New York 2023, From a Jack Whitten Tribute to a Lament for Roe v. Wade’s Overturning

MAXIMILÍANO DURÓN, ARTnews, May 17, 2023

As Frieze New York opened to VIPs this Wednesday, midway through the second week of fairs the city has seen in a row, a line stretched toward 11th Avenue. Everyone seemed buzzed with excitement, and the energy continued to be felt inside, where thrumming crowds were packed into the aisles. By the day’s end, several dealers reported robust sales.


Among those in attendance were collectors like Lonti Ebers, Maja Hoffmann, Estrellita Brodsky, Komal Shah, Pamela Joyner, and Ricard Agakawa, as well as museum directors and curators like Johanna Burton and Naomi Beckwith. Former Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Killoren Bensimon even pushed me out of the way to take a photo in front of a Jack Whitten work.


Below, a look at the best on offer at the 2023 edition of Frieze New York, which runs until May 21 at the Shed in Hudson Yards.
