Our 15 Favorite Works from Frieze New York 2017

We typically think of Frieze New York as a kind of palate cleanser for the epic feast that is design week, something that provides us with a dose of pure visual enjoyment before all of our real work begins. This year, of course, half of design week migrated backwards to align with Collective Design, clogging Frieze week with dozens of industry parties and exhibitions (epic roundup post coming tomorrow), but even so, Frieze — consistently one of the prettiest art fairs around — felt like a welcome pause. We spent a day meandering through presentations by more than 200 galleries from 30 countries, and our favorite works are highlighted below.
