The highly regarded Frieze Art Fair have announced details of their tenth London fair, which will take place 11–14 October 2012, in Regent’s Park. Frieze has become one of the world’s most influential contemporary art fairs and brings an international focus to London’s dynamic contemporary art scene, every October. Frieze is a carefully selected presentation of the most forward-thinking contemporary galleries from around the globe and takes place in a bespoke temporary structure, designed this year, once again, by architects Carmody Groarke.
The tenth edition features a new section. Focus is for galleries established after 2001, showing up to three artists. Focus was first introduced at Frieze New York, which took place 4–7 May in Randall’s Island Park, Manhattan.This year, coinciding with the London fair, Frieze also introduces Frieze Masters, a new fair with a contemporary perspective on historical art. Together the crossover between the two fairs will make London the focus for a broad international art audience.
Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, co-directors of Frieze, commented: ‘We are delighted to be presenting our tenth edition. This year is an exciting one for the company. Having successfully launched Frieze New York in May, we’re now looking forward to our two UK fairs. Together Frieze London and Frieze Masters promise to make London in October one of the most anticipated moments in the international art world calendar.’
Michele Faissola, Global Head of Rates and Commodities, and Member of the Global Art Advisory Council, Deutsche Bank said: ‘Every year, Frieze London gets tens of thousands of people thinking about how we see the world through art. Deutsche Bank’s art programme shares this aim by providing a platform for artists and encouraging our clients, employees and shareholders to engage with creativity. Deutsche Bank is proud to share its passion for art with Frieze.’
Frieze London will see a total of 170 exhibitors from 34 countries making it the most international edition of Frieze London; confirming its position as one of the world’s leading contemporary art events with participants from territories including Argentina, China, Columbia, Hungary, India, Korea and South Africa.
The introduction of Focus brings a fresh perspective to the fair and a globally broad reach with galleries such as: Algus Greenspon (New York), Casas
Riegner (Bogota), Jessica Bradley Art + Projects (Toronto), Chatterjee & Lal (Mumbai), Chert (Berlin), dépendance (Brussels), One And J. Gallery (Seoul) and RaebervonStenglin (Zurich).
The geographical diversity of participating galleries continues in Frame, the section of the fair dedicated to galleries established less than six years ago and selected on the basis of a proposed solo stand. Frame presentations include: Bani Abidi at Experimenter (Kolkata); Xavier Antin at Galerie Crèvecoeur (Paris); Carolina Caycedo at La Central (Bogota); Lukas Jasansky & Martin Polak at SVIT (Prague); Mike Kuchar at François Ghebaly Gallery (Los Angeles); István Csákány at Kisterem (Budapest) and Lucas Blalock at Ramiken Crucible, (New York).
Frame presents a number of galleries that have not previously benefitted from an international platform to show their work; 16 of the 21 galleries in this section are new to the London fair. The Frame galleries selection has been advised by curators Rodrigo Moura and Tim Saltarelli. Frame is supported by Cos.
The Outset/Frieze Art Fair Fund to benefit the Tate Collection continues in 2012, the tenth consecutive year of the collaboration. This unique partnership enables Tate to buy important works of art for the nation at Frieze London. The fund to date has raised over £1 million and, as a result, 86 works by 56 significant international artists have been added to Tate’s collection since 2003.
Frieze London was established in 2003 and takes place each year every October in Regent’s Park, London. It features over 170 of the most exciting contemporary art galleries in the world. The fair also includes specially commissioned artists’ projects and a prestigious talks programme.
Frieze Masters is a carefully selected presentation of over 90 of the world’s leading galleries. The fair will give a unique contemporary perspective on art of all ages. Coinciding with, and within walking distance of Frieze London, Frieze Masters will take place 11–14 October 2012, Gloucester Green, Regent’s Park, London, and is sponsored by Deutsche Bank.
