For the 2016 edition of Frieze New York, Project Projects conceptualized, wrote, edited, and designed an educational guide for young visitors—Young People’s Guide to the Fair—in collaboration with the 2016 ‘Frieze Teens.’
The Guide functions as a notebook that can be used by young people during and after the art fair. It comprises fifteen exercises that encourage fair participants to engage their “seeing muscles” by prompting them to consider negative space, framing, reflection, and shadows, both at the fair and beyond. The Guide also includes a “viewfinder,” expressed as die-cut holes on the book’s front and back covers.
The back of the Guide contains suggested further reading; a map of other youth-friendly, cultural institutions in Manhattan; and coloring book pages with designs by artists Jonas Wood, Kenny Scharf, and Saya Woolfalk.
