The scaled-down event will be hosted at The Shed in Manhattan, making it the city's first in-person fair in over a year.
From late March last year, restrictions due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of every New York art fair.
Now one is making a cautious return -- Frieze New York (May 5-9), the first in-person, one-venue fair to be held in the city since The Armory Show in 2020.
"It's amazing, you're on an equal footing with more established galleries, not tucked away," said Sam Gordon, the co-founder of gallery Gordon Robichaux, which participated in Frame in 2019, and this year will be presenting work by the New York-based artist Otis Houston Jr.
"Frieze have gone above and beyond with the structure to manage this fair and get people in and out safely. " Kelly applauds the fair for moving off Randall's Island, which, he said, "no one was really happy with. " He added: "They've moved to an exciting area, to an exciting building.
