The eleventh edition of Frieze art fair in London opens its doors to public from today until Sunday 20th of October at Regent’s Park. Such international contemporary art fair is considered to be one of the most important highlights in the art calendar, that attracts the most important galleries, artists and collectors worldwide to London during a week. Moreover Frieze has recently incorporated, since its last edition, Frieze Masters, which is an art fair focused on the relationship between old and new art. Frieze also motivates auction houses to carry out the greatest auction sales for Post-War and Contemporary art in the same week. Therefore, the Frieze effect does not only consist on the art fair itself ,but the entire transformation of the city of London, where top international collectors look for the best artworks and the top artists in the market.
Launched in 2003 by the publishers of Frieze Magazine, Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, and mainly sponsored by Deutsche Bank, Frieze has become today one of the top art fairs in the international market, that counted with approximately 175 galleries and over 1,000 artists worldwide on its last edition.On this edition Frieze London hosts works by 2,000 international artists and therefore it is considered an amazing opportunity to see a lot of what is going on. Moreover, the art fair also counts with a fascinating outdoor display of commissioned projects, and this year such initiative also includes works from Frieze Masters.
The Frieze’s preview took place this past Tuesday and Wednesday, where the most important art pieces were already sold before opening to public. Top buyers, which include private collectors and public institutions, consider the preview as the most attractive days of the art fair, where they have the opportunity to see and buy unique pieces before anyone else.
