Hello from Randall's Island: here's my first-strike review of the inaugural edition of Frieze New York for the Guardian.

The most exciting is a reinstallation of a 1979 sculpture series by John Ahearn: painted wax casts of the heads of his friends, other artists and patients from a methadone clinic near his Bronx studio. Ahearn himself is here, producing new works on site: it'll cost you, but as so often in New York, the hard part is not spending the money but getting the appointment.
