Frieze Art Fair is finally here in New York! We can't wait to see what's in store at this year's contemporary art fair... or better yet (everyone's favorite part) which pieces gain internet notoriety and are the most Instagrammed!
From the main fair on Randall's Island, to smaller fairs around the city like CONTEXT, to gallery events such as Sugarlift Open Studios, this weekend is packed with great art waiting to be seen throughout New York City. Do you have ideas on what trends will surface? One thing is for certain, these five Instagrammers never miss a beat and will be curating for your viewing pleasure throughout the Frieze weekend festivities.
Here are our top five picks for Instagrams to watch this weekend....
If you're looking for a sophisticated curator's view of the contemporary art world, then you are sure to fall for @artofchoice_'s page. The group of curators running this page focus on great photos of intriguing contemporary works and feature both well established and emerging artists. This page always has its finger on the pulse of the art market, and we can't wait to see what they pick out as the next en vogue works from the upcoming fair.
Sugarlift's favorite Instagrammer, @artstagram__, has some of the most fun and lively picks out of the group! Aside from being totally in sync with the New York City art world, her choices always pop with color, humor, and playfulness. We have a feeling her choices from this year's Frieze will be just as bright!
We can't believe this Instagrammer is still in college! @artdrunk's Gary Yeh has impeccable and mature taste. The young collector has already amassed almost 30,000 followers on Instagram. He focuses on the best of well established mid to late career artists and 20th century masters. We are sure that his picks from Frieze this year will be right on the money.
If you're looking for an art Instagram that knows exactly what the hot shows art at any given moment, then look no further than @mycuratedlife! Her posts are timely and relevant, and she is not afraid to push some boundaries within the contemporary art scene. We expect to see some provocative choices from her this week at Frieze!
Our very own Alex Allenchey definitely makes the list! What more could you want from an Instagrammer than someone who is knowledgable, has a great eye, and never misses a show? @alexallenchey gets our attention every time he posts and we are sure that his picks from Frieze will be no different!
