The Frieze Art Fair New York was launched in 2012 and takes place each year in early May on Randall’s Island in New York City. Featuring art from over 1,000 of the world’s leading artists and housed in a bespoke temporary structure overlooking the East River, the event offers visitors a unique opportunity to view and purchase contemporary art from renowned galleries and enjoy a curated program of talks, performances and new artist commissions.

We have been working on the event since the launch in 2012, developing the distinct serpentine structure overlooking the East River. The structure won two Guinness Book of World Records for the Largest Single-Unit Marquee and the Largest Temporary Stage Ever Installed that year. We have installed this structure every year since the Frieze Art Fair’s 2012 inaugural event.

For the 2018 event, event producers requested a new tent configuration to bring a fresh feel to the art fair. Our team of experienced contractors connected seven main structures in varying sizes to create a 230,000 square foot event space.

What we delivered

  • The structures included (3) 50m x 65m, (1) 50m x 75m, (1) 50m x 155m, (1) 15m x 62.5m, and (1) 20m x 30m
  • Various ancillary structures were installed for storage, sponsors, kitchens, operations, and restrooms
  • 50m wide, 230,000 square feet clearspan tent structure to house the contemporary and modern galleries
  • The structure was fitted with glass wall, hard wall, double doors, and HVAC

“Their professionalism, efficiency and endless good humour was evident at all times during both the challenging year of planning and the mammoth build/breakdown period. I couldn’t ask for a better team to work with and I’m proud to have them as our partner.”
