Despite a rainy downpour, crowds of art fans, press, and art buyers ventured to Randall’s Island in New York City yesterday for the Frieze Art Fair. The London transplant, now in its second year, brings together art from over 180 galleries across the world under one massive tent by architecture firm SO-IL. After several hours traversing the grounds, hoping to be one of the lucky selected for entry into Liz Glynn’s hidden speakeasy (sadly, we weren’t), we noticed more than a few pieces we wouldn’t mind hanging above our couch. The fair had it all—from works on paper to a slightly creepy robotic girl. And if the showing at Frieze is any indication, mirrors and lightboxes seem to be trending in the art world.
View the slideshow for a look at some of the works that caught our eye.
Frieze is open to the public today through Monday. For tickets and directions, click here.
