For this commission, artist David Hanes remixed 47 out of 500+ images that Art F City staff members took during this year’s Frieze New York. The remixes are made with the same techniques he used to produce his “Aware” series, in which online images of gallery documentation become the source material for digital manipulations. Hanes revises these representations of cultural objects in anonymous spaces using Photoshop. The result are dark and vaguely unsettling photographs of emptied showrooms and bleached-out artwork.
Let’s recap last year’s Frieze Week: It sucked. There was almost no remarkable art at Frieze, leaving NADA as the main fair. NADA was good, but still—one fair worth talking in a field just shy of dozen is nothing to write home about.
This year, we have reason to believe the week will be much better.
In honor the art fairs, we bring you this small collection of puppies. What does this have to do with art fairs? Well, we published this post in the same week as the art fairs, therefore puppies have everything to do with art fairs.
