The 14th edition of Frieze London opens today, showcasing work from over 160 galleries from across the globe. Running until 9 October, the fair brings together some of today’s most noteworthy artists, as well as staging a multitude of new artist commissions and talks as part of its non-profit programme. Fuelled by the momentum of last year’s success, Frieze continues to commit itself to discovery and artistic excellence.
This year sees the introduction of a new display space, titled The Nineties. The section aims to recreate pivotal exhibitions from the decade, allowing today’s visitors to experience the monumental exhibits of yesteryear. In addition, the Focus and Live sections are set to return, continuing to provide platforms for emerging galleries and performance art respectively.
Aesthetica will be making an appearance at Frieze this year. As part of the Reading Room sessions, Editorial Assistant Kate Simpson and Marketing Coordinator Alex Beresford will be discussing the world of contemporary photography and the publishing world. This conversation, alongside others to be held throughout the fair, provides an invaluable opportunity for those interested in the world of publishing to gain unique insight. The talk will take place on 9 October, 12.30pm.
In addition, the magazine will be available to purchase throughout the run of the fair – one of 30 magazines to be sold over the three days. Frieze London runs annually alongside its sister fairs, Frieze Masters and the Frieze Sculpture Park, which collectively stand as significant events on the arts fair calendar, and continue to attract countless visitors year upon year.
