The Frieze art fair, arguably one of London’s biggest cultural fairs, took place again this month. Taking place in Regent’s Park the contemporary arts fair sees over 60,000 visitors making the cultural pilgrimage to discover the latest in the art world. The fair, started in 2003 by Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, founders of Frieze magazine, showcases artists and galleries.
This year 171 major galleries from 33 countries took part, such special projects such as Frieze Film and Frieze Talks offered more participatory and interactive experiences and eight artists were commissioned to create site-specific works, including LuckyPDF (see below).
Co-directors Sharp and Slotover explained “this year we’re excited to be working with architects Carmody Groarke, who have proposed an intelligent redesign of the fair. The geographical diversity of the gallery list attests to the art world’s increasing globalisation, offering the opportunity to make discoveries as well as see work by some of the most significant artists working today.”
Here, a selection of exciting works shown at Frieze.
