One of the world’s biggest art fairs, Frieze London, comes back for the 13th time to occupy the spaces of The Regent’s Park in the UK capital. Under the guidance of three prominent curators, the event offers a unique perspective on today's arts scene and a traditionally rich cultural program, including the acclaimed Projects, Talks and Artist Award. Frieze London was established in 2003, and in 2012, it established two more art fairs, the one taking place in New York and Frieze Masters, which coincides with Frieze London and is dedicated to art from ancient to modern. This year, a total of 164 galleries from 27 countries will be divided into three different sections at Frieze, presenting the works of today’s most important artists.
We start the unveiling of the program with Frieze Talks, a series of daily lectures, conversations and panel discussions to be held at the Auditorium at Frieze London. This year’s special guest will be Cuban artist and activist Tania Bruguera, talking in public for the first time since her detention in Cuba. Frieze Talks will also feature artist and novelist Doublas Coupland and K-HOLE co-founder Emily Segal, New York-based artist Anicka Yi, The Guardian critic Adrian Searle, graphic design studio Metahaven and more. Then, we move on to Frieze Projects, a non-profit program supported for the first time by LUMA Foundation and curated by Nicola Lees for the third time. The Projects will focus on the fair’s architecture through commissions done by seven participants including Rachel Rose, winner of the Frieze Artist Award. The Frieze Sculpture Park comprises 16 new and historical works, conveniently set in the English Gardens, between Frieze Masters and Frieze London. Accessed for free, the park will feature pieces by Richard Serra, Anri Sala and Carol Bove, among others. Finally, there will also be video works by four international artists, as part of Frieze Films, as well as the Frieze Music section, returning for one night only and featuring a large-scale audio-visual installation and performance.
Divided into three sections, there will be 164 galleries exhibiting at Frieze London. Most of them will be found with the Main section, including spaces like Massimo De Carlo, David Zwirner, White Cube, Thaddaeus Ropac, Galerie Perrotin, Maureen Paley, Pace, David Kordansky and Gagosian, among others. Younger galleries will have a chance to present themselves within the Focus section, where seven out of 30+ galleries will be exhibiting for the very first time. The Live section will be dedicated to the arts of performance and participatory work, returning for the second edition after the successful 2014 debut and featuring nine spaces.
Frieze London will take place in the south of The Regent’s Park in London, UK, from October 14 through 17, 2015. Opening hours will be 12pm to 7pm during all four days. Tickets prices do not include booking fees and range from Premium, which includes first entry and a complementary copy of Frieze Week Magazine, costing £40 and £55 for a combined ticket for Frieze Masters as well; One Day ticket, going from £34 to £15 (from 5pm to 7pm), £25 for students, £22 for children between 13 and 18, and free for children under 12.
