Frieze, Art and Gentrification

Frieze is arriving and the art world seems set to eats its own tail. Artists are painfully aware that the process of gentrification, where local residents are priced out of their area begins with them.

The most striking show of the season - and possibly the year - is currently to be found at David Zwirner's Mayfair gallery, where Kerry James Marshall has staged, "Look See," his first solo show in the city since 2005.

It is a strange moment. I do not know where to go or what to see. There is so much going on that it seems easier to stay in bed and pull the covers up over my head and sing nursery rhymes. Frieze is in town and it has two identities - Frieze and Frieze Masters.

So, if you can, get out there and experience it!

My first time in NY I had a terrible row. A director of Mallett at that time - it was 1996 - on arrival I was daunted by my first experience of serious jet lag. It was stupid o'clock in the morning, as far as I was concerned, when I sat down to dinner with my then boss Lanto Synge.

Sluice art fair is completely different from the usual clean white visual aesthetic of modern art fairs, where sales are paramount and visual clutter to be avoided.

Visiting Frieze this year it was hard to remember that only a sliver of fabric stands between the people involved in the Occupy Wall St. Movement and the ultra-wealthy collectors whose families really do occupy Wall St.

It's that time of year again when art dealers polish their large, structurally pronounced eyewear and flog their wares in tent city. The art world's marathon, Frieze Art Fair is back.
