Frieze is an exceptional celebration of art that provides an opportunity to encounter some of the most significant artists in the world. Taking place between 5-8 October the fair comprises of Frieze London, Frieze Masters, Frieze Sculpture, Frieze Projects and Talks programmes. Art events and exhibitions are concentrated in Regent’s Park, but countless art exhibitions, events and alternative fairs pop up all over the city. We recommend what to see and where to find Polish artists.
Frieze London Regent’s Park
One of the world’s most important art fairs dedicated to works post 2000s. It features more than 160 of the world’s leading galleries and hosts critically acclaimed Talks programmes.
We are looking forward to see:
Sex Work: Feminist Art & Radical Politics curated by independent curator and scholar Alison M. Gingeras. Among other artists, the exhibition will include Intimate Photography and Intimate Records (1968-69) by Natalia LL (represented by lokal_30) a pioneer of the Polish avant-garde in the ‘60s and ‘70s.
Reading Room / Magazine Kiosk
New issue of Contemporary Lynx Magazine 2 (8) 2017 will have its premier in the Reading Room / Magazine Kiosk at Frieze London.
The main topic of this issue is Nomadism and Migrations: Nomadism for us is an inherent part of the creative process and an inevitable element of making a magazine on art happening on a local and global scale. With that in mind, the main topic of this issue — nomadism and migrations — came about quite naturally – say editors-in-chief – Sylwia Krasoń and Dobromiła Błaszczyk.
This beautiful outdoor exhibition in Regent’s Park, curated by Claire Lilley – the Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s director of programmes – features 25 works by prominent 20th-century and contemporary artists, including Standing Figure with Wheel (1990) by Magdalena Abakanowicz (Marlborough Fine Art) and Big Be-Hide (2017) by Berlin-based Alicja Kwade (kamel mennour, Paris).
The sister fair features more than 130 leading modern and historical galleries from around the world, which showcase art from the ancient era and Old Masters to the late 20th century.
We are looking forward to see the stand by Foksal Gallery Foundation that will include a work by Erna Rosenstein (1913 – 2004 – a surrealist artist and poet.
Among the highlights is Frieze Masters Talk with Marina Abramović and Tim Marlow (Artistic Director, Royal Academy, London) on Friday 6 October 12pm at Auditorium.
