Frieze New York Announces Talks Program for 2013 Fair: Joan Jonas, Suzanne Lacy, and More


Today Frieze New York announced the lineup of artists, curators, critics, writers, and one musician who will partake in the Talks program of the fair’s sophomore edition, slated for May 10-13 on Randall’s Island. It includes artists Joan Jonnas and Suzanne Lacy, both of whom will look back on their storied careers (the latter in conversation with Nato Thompson, Creative Time Philadelphia‘s chief curator); the curators of the 2013 Carnegie International, Daniel Baumann, Tina Kukielski, and Dan Byers; and art historian and curator Douglas Crimp.

The full lineup, which begins at noon on May 10 with the curators’ preview of the 56th Carnegie International and concludes with Crimp’s talk at 3:30pm on May 13, can be found here. Other notable inclusions are New York-based novelists Rachel Kushner, Ben Marcus, and Katie Kitamura discussing the presence of art in literature and reading excerpts thereof, and musician John Maus revealing — and playing recordings and videos of — some of the music that has influenced his own work.

In January Frieze New York announced both the list of galleries that will participate in its second outing, and the special projects that visitors to Randall’s Island can expect, including a cemetery, a speakeasy, and a recreation of Gordon Matta-Clark‘s restaurant-as-art-project Food.
