The 10 Most Instagrammable Artworks at Frieze New York

Missed this year's art bonanza? Don't fret — we're here to take you on a virtual tour of some of its most visually pleasing pieces.

Yesterday saw the curtains close on the seventh edition of Frieze New York. This year’s fair featured more than 190 galleries from 30 countries, attracting the usual droves of international art lovers to Randall’s Island Park in Manhattan. Blistering sunshine accompanied the vibrant display of pieces from artists around the globe, spanning world-renowned favourites and rising stars.

Instagram opportunities abounded, allowing those who were unable to attend in person a whistle-stop tour of the event’s highlights. Here we select the ones that halted us in our scrolling tracks — from a pair of sensual pink lovers by Louise Bourgeois and towering anime girls by Takashi Murakami to Robert Therrien’s giant table and chairs (a resounding Insta-fave) and Cooper Cole Gallery’s award-winning display of sculptures by Jamaican-Canadian artist Tau Lewis. Not to mention Melania Trump as you’ve never seen her before, courtesy of American feminist artist Martha Wilson. Enjoy!

Previewing today: VM is at Frieze New York (Booth B5) with works by #DougAitken #JulesdeBalincourt #IlseDHollander #YayoiKusama #AliceNeel #MariaNepomuceno #ChrisOfili #CeliaPaul #ConradShawcross #DoHoSuh and #SarahSze. The fair opens to the public tomorrow, and runs until 6 May. ___ Displaying a characteristically dynamic approach to form, an untitled work by Maria Nepomuceno expands upon the Rio de Janeiro-based artist’s methods of rope weaving and straw braiding, in which pre-existing and found elements such as branches, twigs, seed pods, playful ceramic forms and paint brushes merge with the organic forms of the sculptures.
