Frieze Week: Tuesday

The week kicks off with major exhibitions opening across town ahead of Frieze London and Frieze Masters 2017

As Michael Xufu Huang says in his interview, the week of Frieze London and Frieze Masters is ‘prime time for the art scene’

Kick off the week with one of the outstanding exhibitions around town, from Basquiat at the Barbican to ‘One Two Three Swing’, the Hyundai Commission by Superflex at Tate Modern. And don’t forget Superflex speak at the fairs as part of Frieze Talks on Saturday ...

For more exhibitions at London's leading museums and galleries, head to On View, which also includes the frieze editors' picks of recommended shows. At the Royal Academy there’s 'Dali/Duchamp', which frieze Editorial Director Jennifer Higgie expects to be one of the ‘most surprising and entertaining shows of the season’. 

From the RA it's a stroll to Christopher Kane's boutique on Mount Street: you can read about the role art plays in his work and life - and what he's looking forward to seeing at the fairs – in his Frieze interview.

Then get a table at Jean-Georges at the nearby Connaught: the latest opening by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten (ABC Kitchen, The Mark).

Or prepare for the fairs by reading selected choices of outstanding presenations from leading curators, including Julieta Gonzalez, Sarah McCrory and Sam Bardouil & Till Felrath.
