Frieze Art Fair Yearbook 2006-7
Edited by Melissa Gronlund.
Hosted by frieze, the forward-thinking London-based contemporary art and culture magazine, the Frieze Art Fair, held annually in Regent's Park, has quickly become one of the world's leading art destinations. Featuring more than 160 of the most exciting international contemporary galleries and over 300 artists, the fair also includes a series of specially commissioned artists' projects and an ambitious lecture program. This year's resulting guide, the Frieze Art Fair Yearbook 2006-7 is an exceptionally well-designed, chunky, informative, and above all, relevant, resource. Rather than simply giving each participating gallery a page in the book, the fair organizers have given a page to each artist, arranged alphabetically, including an image for each, biographical information, a descriptive text, a list of all galleries representing the artist, and select bibliographic and exhibition information. The Yearbook is an essential and comprehensive overview of today's fast-moving art scene, including such galleries as 303, Marianne Boesky, Gavin Brown's enterprise, China Art Objects, John Connelly Presents, The Wrong Gallery and David Zwirner. Featured artists include Isa Genzken, Wade Guyton, Thomas Hirschhorn, Sergej Jensen, Karen Kiliminik, Michael Krebber and Nate Lowman. All galleries have listings at the back of the publication, and there is a complete artist index.
