The Hot Ticket: Frieze London

Now a firm fixture on the global culture calendar, Frieze London takes up residence in London’s Regent’s Park for the 11th year next week, with the promise of an ever-exciting line-up of international galleries and contemporary artists on show.

This year playing host to over 160 galleries, a wide range of artists, from the celebrated - think Turner Prize winners Martin Creed, Chris Ofili, Grayson Perry to name but a few - to the up-and-coming, are represented.

While primarily a commercial event, Frieze Art Fairs are unique in their approach: galleries are encouraged to treat their allocated spaces as though an exhibition; a daily programme of talks includes panel discussions and keynote lectures given by artists, curators and writers; cultural projects are commissioned to complement the fair.

And to top things off, The Sculpture Park, located in the English Garden just a three-minute walk from the Frieze London tent, is free to enter and sees a major new series of bronze sculptures (pictured) by Yayoi Kusama - the artist responsible for Louis Vuitton’s polka dot makeover - displayed alongside works by Michael Craig-Martin, Kristin Oppenheim and more.

Still not got your art fix? Then head to the Frieze Masters tent. A more recent addition to the Frieze schedule, it offers a contemporary perspective on historical art.

Frieze London runs from Wednesday 15th October (Professional Day) until Saturday 18th October at The Regent’s Park, London. Advanced booking recommended.
