In Pictures: Frieze Art Fair New York May 8th 2014

Frieze Art Fair is a four-day event happening this weekend on Randall's island in New York City. I had the chance to preview the fair for CitizenMag (see my post here) along with VIP peeps, and so I am excited to share some of the pictures I took with you! It was my first time going to Frieze and loved it! Some pieces were a yawner but some were definitely conversation starters; it basically felt like strolling through a contemporary art museum except here, you can purchase the art if you have a few thousands of dollars to spare. I don't have money to spare so I was just happy poking around looking at million dollar art pieces.

Food was available for purchase and there was no plain cafeteria food served here. The fair partnered with a few of the best eateries in town including Blue Bottle Coffee, Court Street Grocers, Marlow & Sons, Mission Cantina, Momofuku Milk Bar, The Fat Radish and Roberta's! What a crazy line-up of deliciousness right?! 

Here are just some of the few pieces I enjoyed...

The last piece we saw at the fair was inside a room with a strobe light which gave this silver ball a molten lava effect that cannot be seen in a picture...well, the picture is cool anyway so I'll show it. What I did do is post a short video of it on my instagram.
