@jhavericontemporary presented British artist @PremSahib’s ‘Umbra, 2019’ at Frieze New York 2019. This artwork consists of three hoodies, discreet metal armatures and a sheet of glass. The ambiguity of the ‘figures’ beneath the glass with their ghostly presence is evocative of a material acting beyond its capacity, with fabric seemingly supporting glass. The composition of the hoodies implies bodies that are seeking refuge, performing or waiting.
Barthélémy Toguo (b. 1967, M’Balmayo, Cameroon) works across painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation to address enduring and topical issues of borders, exile, displacement. @barthelemy_toguo created a new work especially for Frieze New York 2019. Comprised of a bicycle and trailer filled with fabric, the work tells the story of materials that mirror the flow of human bodies in transit. Presented by @galerielelong.
Brought to Frieze New York by @VigoGallery, ‘Beauty World’ is a continuation of @DerrickAdamsny’s Deconstruction Worker series. Inspired by the artist’s Brooklyn neighbourhood, his work explores black feminine empowerment, achieved through acts of versatility, camouflaging and costuming, associated with beautification and roleplaying in the public space. The work is meant to draw attention to specific social rituals - which never needed to be contextualised or understood, to be credible or worthy - to those who don’t participate. It is a celebration, highlighting the extraordinary effort of those who do take part in beautification - for any and all reasons.
This year’s Frieze New York Stand Prize was awarded to @jenkinsjohnsongallery for its outstanding solo presentation of Ming Smith in the JAM (Just Above Midtown) section of the fair. Congratulations!
Regram from #FriezeMasters Artistic Director @followaginger: “The Cone Sisters purchased #Matisse’s ‘Blue Nude’ from Gertrude & Leo Stein, gifting it alongside 500 works by the artist to @baltimoremuseumofart - the largest public holding of Matisse’s work. In 1913 @saicpics students burned a copy of this painting protesting its perceived vulgarity.”

In celebration of Frieze Week in New York, Frieze together with @richardmilleofficial premiered a new short video by artist Fred Tomaselli at the fair this Wednesday. In ‘Time Piece’, Tomaselli explores his practice and passions in relation to time, making for a playful portrait of a restless creative. Tomaselli’s ‘Untitled’ (2019) is on view at Frieze New York with @jamescohangallery, Stand A8. Since launching a partnership in 2018 with Frieze, Richard Mille is more than ever determined to support creation today. Richard Mille is also involved in collaborations with the choreographer Benjamin Millepied and Palais de Tokyo, and has acquired Éditions Cercle d’Art, a publishing house created with the support of Picasso, which published his first volumes in the late 1950s.
