The first iteration of Frieze NY Art Fair delivered well beyond everyone’s expectations. Featuring a great roster of international galleries, with Roberta’s Pizza and The Fat Radish cuisine, all housed in an airy tent, which even spawning its own twitter meme — the show was a hit.  But more than a success, it proved the question on everyone’s mind of whether NY can sustain two fairs. The answer is clearly yes. 

This year will be the centennial anniversary of the Armory Show and Eric Shiner, the Director of the Andy Warhol Museum, will be at the curatorial helm of the American Focus section that is bound to be terrific.

Check out the Artsy interview with: Eric Shiner.
