London based non-profit collective Allied Editions partner with New York organisations to launch exclusive artist editions at Frieze New York.
Taking part in Frieze New York for the first time, Allied Editions is a collective of non-profit institutions offering Frieze visitors the opportunity to purchase affordable artworks by prominent artists. At this year’s fair, Artists Space, CCS Bard, SculptureCenter and Swiss Institute (all New York) will partner with Camden Art Centre, Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), Whitechapel Gallery and Studio Voltaire (all London) to present specially commissioned works by international artists.
New editions will launch exclusively at Frieze, with works available from as little as $120. All proceeds directly support the organisations’ exhibition and education programmes. Frieze New York ticket holders receive a 5% discount on selected prints from Allied Editions.
Initiated in 2011, Allied Editions is a unique artist editions collective made up of seven of London’s leading independent arts organisations: Camden Arts Centre, Chisenhale Gallery, ICA, South London Gallery, Studio Voltaire, Serpentine Galleries and Whitechapel Gallery. Supported by Frieze Art Fair, each year, the collective host a shared stand at Frieze London, showcasing specially commissioned works for sale by prominent contemporary artists. All works are donated by the artists to raise much-needed funds for the non-profit spaces. To date the initiative has raised over £950,000.
