Frieze Library: Volume Five

May 17–May 21, 2023

Following the success of previous iterations, Frieze is delighted to present the Frieze Library: Volume Five, in collaboration with the Thomas J. Watson Library, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Gordon Robichaux.

Over the years, more than 300 publications have been submitted as part of the Frieze Library. At the close of the fair, the collection will be gifted to the Thomas J. Watson Library, the main research library of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, forming part of its permanent collection. Both physical publications and online PDFs are accepted to be a part of the collection, and online publications are catalogued and made available through Watsonline, the library's online catalogue.

Galleries are invited to submit a title that they feel both echoes their fair presentation and speaks to the present moment. Together, the collection of volumes function as a kind of archive of the fair, offering a reflection of the present day as seen through the eyes of artists, writers, and art world professionals. This year’s titles include innovative publications on artists such as Pamela Rosenkranz (Karma International), Sung Tieu (Emalin), Mary Lovelace O’Neal (Jenkins Johnson Gallery), Suzan Frecon (David Zwirner) and Mire Lee (Tina Kim Gallery), amongst others.

Visitors to the Frieze Library installation at the fair will receive a printed bibliography of publications, which will also published on The public will also be able to explore the collection in a dedicated section on Frieze Viewing Room from May 17th.
