Paul Carey Kent reveals his TEN HOT ALTERNATIVES TO FRIEZE, ten free exhibitions that are bound to get your art radar going. This is the most intense art week in the London calendar and not all of the madness needs to break the bank, with Frieze charging a cool £33 for one day’s admission not everyone has been invited to the party.
Another Life, Another World –Paul Nash Works on Paper, 1910-1946 at Piano Nobile, 129 Portland Road – Holland Park
A Very Short History of Contemporary Sculpture – curated by Francesco Bonami at Phillips, 30 Berkeley Square – Mayfair
Karen Knorr: The Flight to Freedom, Durbar Hall, Juna Mahal, Dungarpur
Several private clubs have art collections which non-members can arrange to visit, and the commendably charitable St Barnabas currently has an impressive range, including Keith Amatt, John Baldesarri, Friedrich Kunath, Franz Ackermann, Kendell Geers and a selection of Karen Knorr’s FABLES and INDIA SONG series – as well as its own extensive permanent collection.
Aidan McNeill: Borders Between at the Canadian High Commission, Grosvenor Square – Mayfair
Paradigm Store @ HS Projects, 5 Howick Place – Victoria
Installation view with Simon Bedwell
Sunday Art Fair Oct 17–20, 2013. Ambika P3 35 Marylebone Road – Baker Street
Zurich’s Bolte Lang may bring Bejamin Senior’s work: here’s Ball Games III, 2013
Marlow Moss at Tate Britain
Last stop for an inspired but little-publicised touring show of the maverick’s geometries, and as close as London seems likely to get to the Mondrian double feature at Liverpool and Margate.
Oreet Ashery at Swedenborg House, 20-21 Bloomsbury Way – Bloomsbury
White Rainbow, 47 Mortimer St – Fitzrovia, and Rodeo, 123 Charing Cross Rd
More galleries are launching than closing after the reverse in 2013, the highest profile being Marian Goodman and Dominique Levy. But I reckon Turkey’s Rodeo and the Japanese specialists White Rainbow will prove just as interesting.
We could not agree at Q Car Park, Level -3, Cavendish Square – Fitzrovia
Pascal Rousson is one of the artist-collabraters, though possibly not with this…
With 10 curators and over 100 artists, what do you expect? But you should agree to go to this extravaganza in an underground car park. And don’t forget to check on the state of Meekyoung Shin’s soap version of the Duke of Cumberland in the Square above.
