  1. Frieze Rat Fair charges each exhibitor between 10,000 to 60,000 USD. Times that by 190 exhibitors to get an idea what kind of profits these guys are earning, not to forget to 40 dollars each visitor pays @ 16,000 to 25,000 visitors! we are talking around 6 to 8 million USD. Leasing Randall’s Island at 1 USD a square foot – looks to me like the city of New York is also getting reamed
