The purchase of art (or anything else) has become the new normal in the current health crisis. If they were maybe two months ago, the online viewing rooms are no longer a novelty. Under the direction of Art Basel, which it presented to support the Hong Kong Edition exhibitors, it is now being offered by another world-class trade fair, Frieze .
Officially opened to the public on May 8 After the VIP previews from May 6th, 7th and until May 15th the Frieze Viewing Room New York 2020 offers virtual Works from more than 200 first-class galleries. After the cancellation of the physical fair, Frieze reimbursed the participants 1
The Frieze Viewing Room which you can now access after registration, offers filtering by galleries and artworks and offers their traditional sectors such as Main, Focus, Frame and Spotlight. For example, you can also filter by artist gender, price range and medium.
Although most of the artwork sold during Frieze New York's VIP preview appears to fall in the $ 100,000 to $ 500,000 range, we were curious to see the more expensive ones; After a few inspections, museum-quality pieces of over $ 1 million are already being sold by artists such as George Condo (Hauser & Wirth) and Leon Kossoff (Piano Nobile).
