The Frieze fair occurs annually in October in the Regent’s Park, London. Each year, the organisers provide the chance for a complete immersion into the world of contemporary art. Visitors are given the opportunity to enjoy art pieces made by emerging creators along with well-established artists. The Frieze fair and its twin fair, the Frieze Masters, attract over 60,000 people each year. This year’s fairs edition offers the public over 290 art galleries to see. In contrast to the Frieze fair, Frieze Masters combines both contemporary and historical art, focusing on their correlation. Sadie Coles HQ, Hauser & Wirth, Xavier Hufkens, Taka Ishii Gallery, Karma, Kukje Gallery, Matthew Marks Gallery, Maureen Paley, Stevenson, and David Zwirner are among the galleries represented in the 2021 fair edition. 

Frieze Masters is a fair unlike any other. We feature everything from Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquities all the way through medieval and Renaissance sculpture, Old Master paintings and luminaries of the 20th century. (…) New to Frieze Masters this year is a section called Stand Out, curated by Luke Syson – the director of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. The Stand-Out looks to re-examine, reimagine the traditional hierarchies given to the arts, and challenge the term decorative arts. Through Stand-Out Luke, as curator, makes the case that all objects are works of human ingenuity and creativity and that we shouldn’t call them decorative. They are the arts. (…) The Frieze Masters Talks programme is curated by Dr Nicholas Cullina, director of the National Portrait Gallery here in London, and several artists will be live at the fair including, Joy Labinjo, Kaye Donachie, Erdem, Michaël Borremans and Dries Van Noten.” – Nathan Clements-Gillespie, Artistic Director of Frieze Masters.
