Artists you should be paying attention to. Check out the round-up of our favorite works that sold at Frieze this year.
While the art world has started to welcome price transparency in virtual art fairs, dealers also point to the fact that their carbon footprints have ground to zero as a result of not having to ship and transport artwork to faraway destinations.
This year Frieze New York saw impressive results as gallerists were able to promote their artists to a wider virtual audience. Female artists saw consistent and strong sales, topping the hundreds of thousands. Below we recap some of the works that saw success during the first-ever virtual Frieze run.
