Frieze Talks 2017

Talks and performances at Frieze London exploring art in an age of 'alternative facts', curated by Ralph Rugoff

Curated for the first time by Ralph Rugoff (Hayward Gallery, London), leading artists, musicians and cultural commentators will explore  how – in an age of ‘alternative facts’ – art’s capacity to beguile, disorientate and disrupt conventional notions of ‘the real’ can take on new meanings. Watch Rugoff discuss the programme and its aims in our exclusive video.
