Throughout the day, our ‘Live’ programme continues. Alex Baczynski-Jenkins, recipient of the Frieze artist award, will present a choreographed performance between booths B1 and B2. A neon sign outside the space will indicate when the performance is on.

If you choose to walk between Frieze London and Frieze Masters, why not stop off at Frieze Sculpture and tune into the audio guide led by Clare Lilley, Director of Programme, Yorkshire Sculpture Park?

At Frieze Masters, the programme of talks continues. This year, to commemorate the centenary of women’s suffrage in the UK, we will be hosting a programme of all-women speakers. At 12pm, sculptor Doris Salcedo is in conversation with Rachel Thomas, Head of Exhibitions, Irish Museum of Modern Art and Tim Marlow, Artistic Director, Royal Academy. Later in the afternoon at 3pm, Jennifer Higgie, Editorial Director of frieze magazine, will host a panel to discuss what place contemporary art has in historical museums – and vice versa. The entertaining talk, titled ‘Gods and Monsters’ will include an all-women panel of museum directors.

The fair programme continues into the evening with East End Night. Ten galleries across London’s East End will participate in the programme with late night openings. At Parasol unit, Heidi Bucher’s large latex works will be on display, while over at Modern Art, you can see the first UK solo show of paintings by Forrest Bess.
