Shopping inside the big tent at Frieze New York, it was easy to believe for a moment that you were in Dubai, Moscow, London, New Songdo, or even Juba instead of Manhattan's baby cousin, Randall’s Island. The blank, carefully generic setting had the ability to metamorphose anyone into a global citizen, however fleetingly. ARTINFO wandered through this bestiary of the international art world and captured the collectors, dealers, advisors, and even the rare artist in their natural habitat: the globalized art-world souk. Manet once said, “art is a circle,” and here it is on preening display.
