This year’s non-profit programme of new artist commissions at Frieze London is curated by Raphael Gygax (Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich) and will feature eleven artists from eight countries across the world. Frieze Projects and the Frieze Artist Award are supported by the LUMA Foundation for the third consecutive year.
Marc Bauer, Donna Kukama, MOON Kyungwon & JEON Joonho, Lucy + Jorge Orta, SPIT! (Carlos Motta, John Arthur Peetz, Carlos Maria Romero), Georgina Starr and Frieze Artist Award-winner Kiluanji Kia Henda will create seven new artworks spanning literature, theatre, design and installation, all connected by a strong performative aspect.
‘Focused on artistic collaboration, this year’s Projects explore “communitas” – the construction of collective identity – and society’s relationship with the “Other”. During insecure times, we have always intensified the use of symbols and the performance of rituals to face change and create security. We asked artists from different generations and four continents to explore these questions: How can we create a communal moment? Can the temporary intensity of art fair be a place where transformative rituals take place?’ -Curator Raphael Gygax
Frieze Projects will be installed throughout Frieze London in The Regent's Park, 5 to 8 October 2017. Tickets will be released in July.
