Frieze New York 2018
05.03.2018 — 05.06.2018
Kavi Gupta is pleased to participate in Frieze New York. Kavi Gupta will present a booth (C15) that brings together a dynamic selection of work by the most engaging voices in contemporary abstraction.
Kavi Gupta is also pleased to announce Tony Tasset’s participation in Frieze New York’s first-ever themed section, “For Your Infotainment: Hudson and Feature Inc.” His work will be shown at booth FY15
Taking its name from the words printed on Feature Inc.’s compliments slip, “For Your Infotainment” celebrates the maverick spirit and enduring legacy of the late art dealer Hudson (1950-2014) and his Chicago- and New York-based gallery Feature Inc. Further to the announcement in January, full details of this—the first themed section at Frieze New York—have been announced.
Curated by Matthew Higgs (White Columns, New York), “For Your Infotainment: Hudson and Feature Inc.” showcases major artists who received their gallery debuts or had a long history at Hudson’s seminal space Feature Inc. in the 1980s, ‘90s and early 2000s—a group which, Higgs says, comprises “artists of often quite radically different intentions, that somehow all made (perfect) sense when viewed through Hudson’s eyes.”
The presentations in For Your Infotainment include: Dike Blair (Karma, New York), Tom of Finland (David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles), Jason Fox & Daniel Hesidence (Canada), Tom Friedman (Stephen Friedman Gallery, London), Andrew Masullo (Nicelle Beauchene, New York), Raymond Pettibon (David Zwirner, New York), Takashi Murakami (Gagosian, New York), & Tony Tasset (Kavi Gupta, Chicago).
