The thirteenth edition of the contemporary art fair will present over 160 of the world’s leading contemporary galleries, from almost 30 countries.
Unrivalled in range and depth, this edition of Frieze London will feature some of the most relevant and exciting contemporary artworks alongside highlights including the Sculpture Park, Frieze Talks and Frieze Projects, the celebrated non-profit programme curated by Nicola Lees and supported for the first time byLUMA Foundation.
This year sees the full instatement of a new team comprising Victoria Siddall as Director, Abby Bangser as Artistic Director (Americas & Asia) and Jo Stella-Sawicka as Artistic Director (Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia).
Frieze London will take place 14–17 October in the Regent’s Park, London.
Opening alongside Frieze Masters, together the two fairs offer an unmissable opportunity to view, experience and acquire art. Frieze London is generously sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the 12th consecutive year, continuing a shared commitment to discovery.
Victoria Siddall said: ‘The great response to the redesigned Frieze London last year has attracted an exceptional list of galleries for 2015 and I am thrilled to announce what I believe will be a really strong fair. Once again, both established and young galleries are planning special presentations of mainly new work so Frieze London will be a place to see art of the highest quality and discover emerging artists from all over the world.’
The fourth edition of the fair offers an unparalleled opportunity to discover several thousand years of art from 131 of the world’s leading modern and historical galleries.
Expertly vetted artworks spanning antiquities, Asian art, ethnographic art, illuminated manuscripts, Medieval, modern and post-war, Old Masters and 19th-century, photography, sculpture and Wunderkammer will be brought together in a singular space. Visitors will find both established artists and new discoveries, from highly collectible objects to significant masterpieces.
This year sees the introduction of a new section, Collections, curated by Sir Norman Rosenthal, who said: ‘Each of these eight presentations by individual dealers, spanning millennia, contain within them germs of ideas for exhibitions that could easily take place at any of the great public institutions in the world. This section will show that it is still possible, with both knowledge and love, to put together outstanding collections of art that demonstrate the highest level of creativity in all different periods of history.’
The Spotlight section, dedicated to 20th-century solo positions from all over the world, welcomes a new curator, Clara M Kim, formerly Senior Curator at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and Director/Curator of the Gallery atREDCAT in Los Angeles.
Director of Frieze Masters since its inception, Victoria Siddall is joined by new team Abby Bangser as Artistic Director (Americas & Asia) and Jo Stella-Sawicka as Artistic Director (Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia).
