Highlights from Frieze 2013

We headed to Randall's Island to check out the goings on at the 2013 Frieze Contemporary Art Fair and came back with some eye-catching highlights to share.

While many of the works on hand were substantial in their realization, there was something about them being housed together in one giant space that gave the pieces often reflective, and mirrored finishes an appeal that was strictly commercial, and purely decorative. 

That said, there were still plenty of works to admire such as Francesco Vezzoli's warped portrait, above.

A reflective mobile we could imagine attracting attention in any space

Paul McCarthy's playful poodle in shocking pink was one of the fair's boldest standouts

A fragmented body that gyrated on a rotating etagere made for a genius take on the human form in sculpture

Extra large panels of knit canvases added a welcome sense of craftwork to the fair's otherwise sleek & slick offerings
