NEW IN 2016 ARE TWO ‘SOUND’ ROOMS and sound stations throughout the fair.  Curated by Cecilia Alemani (High Line Art, New York), Frieze Sounds is a program of new artist commissions premiered at Frieze New York. Frieze Sounds will be played in the VIP 7 Series cars at the fair, and via listening stations inside the new Reading Room and BMW Lounge. The commissions will also be streamed online at frieze.comDrawing soundbites from antidepressant ads, airline marketing material and quotes from the Qur’an read by a generic female voice with a vague British accent, this work by GCC aims to revitalize spaciousness and explore power, imperialism and allegiance through language.
