27 April, 2018 – Live Mint
“In May, 190 of the world’s best galleries will converge on to Randall’s Island Park in New York, with a gigantic, translucent tent transforming into a hub for cutting-edge contemporary art. And sharing space with some of these global names, at the seventh edition of Frieze New York, will be three galleries from India—Nature Morte, Jhaveri Contemporary and Project 88, each of which has had a long-term engagement with the fair.
Old and the new: Project 88
This is the gallery’s fifth year at the fair, and it’s a relationship which is ever-evolving. “Frieze is an excellent venue for showcasing international art, and it gives galleries from all over the world an important voice,” says Sree Goswami, director, Project 88. And for the 2018 edition, it is presenting works by Hemali Bhuta, Amitesh Shrivastava, Prajakta Potnis, Munem Wasif, Sandeep Mukherjee, Neha Choksi and Rohini Devasher. “The overarching theme of our booth is to look at artists using older analogue technology, equipment and methods to stake out a newer territory between measurement and metaphor,” says Goswami. Especially interesting is Potnis’ image series, shot inside a refrigerator, which explores the idea of freezing time. It draws attention to capsuled zones and transit spaces within cities. In addition, you have solarized etchings by Devasher sharing space with gleaming cyanotype prints of dripping seeds by Wasif that highlights the history of his hometown through the evolution of agricultural practices in Bangladesh.
Frieze New York 2018 is open to the public from 4-6 May. The preview is from 2-3 May…”
