NEW YORK.- Andrew Durbin has been appointed as the next Editor in Chief of frieze, the leading destination for news and opinion on international contemporary art and culture. Durbin will work between London, New York and Berlin to lead frieze’s editorial team in print and digital. Durbin currently serves as Senior Editor of frieze, based in New York. He will begin his new position in early January and the first issue of the magazine under his leadership will be the May edition, published 29 April.

Since joining frieze in 2017, Durbin has brought new voices to the magazine, including Lucy Ives, Shiv Kotecha and Audrey Wollen. He organized an influential roundtable on free speech, featuring Hannah Black and Jamillah James, and with New York-based editor Evan Moffitt, edited the recent Food Issue. He has profiled artists including Janiva Ellis, Fran Lebowitz, Robert Morris, Laura Owens, Yvonne Rainer and Ryan Trecartin. He is also an essayist and novelist, with a forthcoming novella called Skyland to be published by Nightboat in June 2020.

‘Andrew is a committed member of the frieze community, and after a wide-ranging and international search, we are delighted to promote him to this new position,’ commented Rebecca Ann Siegel, frieze Publisher. ‘His vision for the future of frieze is grounded in cross-disciplinary content and multi-media platforms. I look forward to working with him as we grow in the coming years.’

‘frieze has played a key role in shaping art discourse for the past 30 years,’ Durbin commented. ‘Amidst the complex challenges facing artists and writers today, our history of building strong connections between art communities is now more important than ever. As Editor in Chief, I look forward to bolstering our international efforts to resist insularity and promote great art for a changing world.’

Prior to joining frieze, Durbin was director of Company Gallery in New York and served as Talks Curator at the Poetry Project. He is the author of MacArthur Park (Nightboat, 2017), and editor of Kevin Killian’s Fascination: Memoirs (Semiotexte, 2018) and a forthcoming collection of essays on Jacolby Satterwhite for Miller ICA, Carnegie Mellon University. His fiction, poetry and criticism have appeared in BOMB, The Paris Review, Triple Canopy, and elsewhere.
