Featuring record international participation, new curators and sections for the London fairs, taking place 3-6 October 2019
This year’s editions of Frieze London and Frieze Masters embody the exceptional international spirit of London, a city that is a meeting point for art, ideas and people from all over the world. -Victoria Siddall (Director, Frieze Fairs)
Frieze London 2019 will bring together more than 160 galleries from 36 countries, representing the fair’s most international edition since its launch. Introducing new curators including Cosmin Costinas (Para Site, Hong Kong) and sections showcasing performance, emerging artists and the contemporary significance of complex art genealogies and colonial legacies, Frieze London will create an exceptional moment for cultural conversations on a global level.
Across the park, Frieze Masters will feature more than 130 historical galleries, bringing together six millennia of art history, from exquisite antiquities, to Old Master paintings and luminaries of the 20th century, creating an exceptional environment to discover and acquire. New expertise in 20th-century and Asian art is brought to the fair with the addition of Laura Hoptman (The Drawing Center, New York) and Amin Jaffer as curatorial advisors.
Victoria Siddall said: We will welcome the most significant galleries from around the globe, across both fairs, some of whom are joining us for the first time. They represent art and artists from around the globe, from the Asian influence on Collections at Frieze Masters, to new galleries joining Frieze London from Brazil, Lebanon, Estonia and Taiwan, as well as leading programmes from the USA and Europe. The two fairs and Frieze Sculpture, along with exhibitions opening during Frieze Week including Kara Walker in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern and Elizabeth Peyton at the National Portrait Gallery, make Frieze in London a vital and truly global cultural moment in the city.
Frieze London and Frieze Masters will take place from 3 to 6 October 2019 in Regent's Park. Tickets and further information will be released soon.
