The Frieze Art Fair takes place each year in New York City on Randall’s Island and features art from over 1,000 of the world’s leading artists.
Event producers requested a new tent configuration for the 2018 show so Arena Americas designers and project managers developed a new 50m wide, 230,000 square feet clearspan tent structure to house the contemporary and modern galleries.
The massive structure was installed on 320,000 square feet of level scaffold flooring and outfitted with glass wall, hard wall, double doors, and HVAC. Arena carefully coordinated the delivery of 80 semi-loads of equipment during the installation of the project.
During the four day event, guests were able to view and buy art while also enjoying a curated program of talks, performances, and new artist commissions.
