Frieze New York 2023 has just concluded its five-day affair at The Shed on May 17-21. The event was successful, featuring 68 exhibitors and numerous art world events across the city. Under the leadership of Christine Messineo, Frieze’s fair director of Americas, the fair showcased established and emerging artists. This year’s event was particularly successful, with many dealers reporting better-than-expected sales despite an uncertain economic landscape. In this blog post, we provide you with a recap of some of the top sales and sellout booths.

The event was undoubtedly one where art lovers got to experience an array of artworks. Some of the top sales included Jack Whitten’s Untitled artwork selling for $2.5 million at Hauser & Wirth, and Thaddaeus Ropac selling Robert Longo’s Study of Cotton Field (2022) for $900,000. White Cube sold a diverse range of artworks, including Doris Salcedo’s wooden table for $1.25 million.

Several exhibitors reported sellout booths, such as David Kordansky Gallery’s solo booth of Lauren Halsey’s new gypsum-based engravings and digital collages. Pace Gallery sold all works from their solo booth of Robert Nava pieces on the VIP preview day.

One of the most exciting aspects of the fair was its ability to introduce new artists. The Stephen Friedman Gallery sold five paintings by Pam Glick for $55,000 each, and Mitre Galeria from Brazil sold out their presentation of works by Marcos Siqueira. This presents an exciting opportunity for collectors to explore and purchase works from emerging artists with promising futures.

In total, our report covers sales from 22 galleries, unveiling sales of 95 artworks of established and emerging artists. The sellout booths and top sales prove that Frieze New York 2023 was undoubtedly a successful event.

Frieze New York 2023 curated by Christine Messineo was a fantastic opportunity for art collectors to explore new and established artists. It was an impressive showcase of the diversity and breadth of contemporary art available to collectors. With the success of this year’s event, we anticipate that future editions will continue to be exciting and valuable for collectors looking to diversify and enhance their collections. As Frieze continues to grow and evolve, we look forward to seeing what their next installment holds.
