Frieze Week

A conversation with Paul Kasmin, an inside look at the Christie's Frieze Post-War & Contemporary Evening Sale with Katharine Arnold, and a Preview of the Sotheby's Frieze Evening Sale with Oliver Barker

Happy Frieze Week everyone!

While The Canvas has been busily preparing the latest edition of our monthly reports (more on that below), we’re also gearing up to release our traditional (and free!) fair reports tomorrow, Friday, and Sunday. And with this being Frieze London, we’ll of course be including our recap and analysis of the annual Post-War & Contemporary evening auctions at Christie’s and Sotheby’s respectively.

And speaking of Christie’s and Sotheby’s- our October edition of The Canvas Monthly features an inside look at the Christie’s Frieze Post-War & Contemporary evening sale with Katharine Arnold; and a preview of the Sotheby’s Contemporary evening sale, and sale of the David Teiger collection with Oliver Barker. We also had a long and in-depth conversation with Paul Kasmin regarding his gallery’s new flagship space next to the High Line, the future of Cheslea as an art neighborhood, and the gallery’s recent rebranding.

We’re also extraordinarily pleased to announce who will be featured in our November edition- and we know, we’re surprised we’re ahead of schedule for once as well. We’ll be talking to Frieze director, Victoria Sidall, for a wide ranging conversation touching on all three iterations of the fair (including what we can expect from the first Frieze LA). We’ll be speaking with Amalia Dayan and Daniella Luxembourg (of Luxembourg & Dayan) about how their small but powerhouse gallery has thrived amidst the increasing push for galleries to constantly grow larger. And we’ll be talking to all the relevant players at Christie’s and Sotheby’s for inside looks and previews of the November Post-War & Contemporary and Impressionist & Modern evening sales in New York taking place later that month. And as a cherry on top- Dominique Lévy will headline our December edition which will of course focus heavily on Art Basel Miami Beach and the requisite satellite fairs. There’s also another really big guest being planned as well- but we’re not ready to announce his participation yet. You’ll just have to trust us when we say that you’d absolutely, 100%, be dying to hear his thoughts on a whole range of issues effecting the art world.

Not to brag (but okay, just to brag a little), have you ever seen a more blue-chip lineup of interviews before? When we started The Canvas Monthly back in June we promised to provide access to only the top thought leaders and decision makers shaping the fine art industry. We think we’ve delivered. And if you think so too, then we encourage you to show your support by subscribing below. No one likes a mooch.

And whether you’d like to inquire about a discounted group subscription for your gallery, have a topic or person you’d like to see covered in the pages of The Canvas, ask us about any of our sponsorship opportunities, would like The Canvas to consult on your next editorial, video, or social media project, or just want to say hi, then by all means, email us at or simply reply to this email. We’re happy to talk and kibbitz with anyone and everyone.

Until then- our beds our calling to us. And the Airbnb is beginning to look hazy. Until tomorrow folks!
