As it has in prior years, Frieze Masters offers some interesting takes on the traditional art fair booth. This year, Richard Feigen collaborated with JP Molyneux Studio to create the atmosphere of a collector's palazzo, showing works which spanned many eras by Joseph Cornell, Bernardo Daddi, Max Ernst, and Ray Johnson, echoing Helly Nahmad's stand from this past year, but with a very different overall effect.
