Tomorrow, art world denizens will start making their fitful way across the water to Randall’s Island for Frieze’s inaugural New York fair, by train, boat, car, or chartered helicopter (it's easy to get to, we're assured). The giant tent is waiting, the sculpture park is ready, and the food trucks full. In one final preview of the exotic urban locale and a look at the SO-IL-designed structure before the action starts, ARTINFO caught Frieze co-founder Matthew Slotover on location and talked to him about choosing the island, the new Focus section for young galleries, and why collectors should pick their fair out of the multitude of international options.
