This morning Frieze New York announced on its Facebook timeline that the sophomore edition of the London-based fair’s states-side franchise will take place in the past, possibly thanks to mass time-travel technology. “Frieze New York 2013 will take place 10–13 May 2012,” the post reads.
In its ongoing quest to unseat the Armory Show as New York City’s marquee fair — which, it should be noted, will be celebrating the centennial of the original Armory Show next year — Frieze New York’s decision to set its second edition one year in the past is a bold move. We’re particularly heartened to know that we’ll get to spend a few more days in SO-IL‘s incredible Frieze tent.
UPDATE: Frieze New York just posted the correct dates for next year’s fair on its Facebook page. “The correct dates for Frieze New York 2013 are: 10–13 May,” the post explains.
