Cory Arcangel intervened in the fair’s gallery selection process. Arcangel hid a golden ticket inside one of hundreds of chocolate bars which were sent to all the galleries who were unsuccessful in their application to this year’s fair. Studiò di Giovanna Simonetta was the finder of the golden ticket and was allocated a stand at Frieze Art Fair 2008.
