Frieze Picks

I felt very lucky to have spent the whole day today at "Frieze" (i.e. the Frieze Art Fair in New York) in the beautiful weather and while I realize by now (two days into the fair), most people might be "done" with lists of "picks" from the show, below are my own for any use one might see fit. 

At best, they will enable those who haven't visited the show to possibly not miss some great works, and maybe there are one or two works those who already attended the show didn't see or might agree with me about—and have some satisfaction in that. (I guess that's the most one can hope for by picking highlights relatively late in the game.) 

Feedback is more than welcome and apologies for any misspellings, confused locations and omissions...
