No contributor

Frieze London makes its return to the city’s Regent’s Park with first-time Artistic Director Eva Langret, live from October 13—17. In this edition, fairgoers can expect to browse in-person presentations from more than 150 galleries, presented with support from Deutsche Bank, along with an online viewing room (OVR), Frieze Sculpture, and a full schedule of surrounding presentations and programming, including talks, tours, workshops, and the opening of the international gallery hub at No.9 Cork Street.

“We are hugely looking forward to this year’s Frieze London, my first as Artistic Director, and to reunite with colleagues in person,” said Langret.The list of galleries participating confirms London as one of the world’s most exciting art capitals, which has come through the pandemic with huge resilience. This year’s fair also sees a new generation of curators whose programming will prompt important conversations that not only reflect this moment of change and transformation but also look forward to what the future of the art world can be.”

Fairgoers will find within the main sector galleries representing a total of 39 countries,  including Pilar Corrias, David Kordansky Gallery, Sadie Coles HQ, Sean Kelly Gallery, Pace Gallery, OMR, Vermelho, Almine Rech, Thaddaeus Ropac, The Modern Institute, and Mendes Wood DM. Meanwhile, new galleries sharing work by emerging artists include those like Proyectos Ultravioleta, Hot Wheels Athens, Instituto de Visión, Arcadia Missa, Emalin, Empty Gallery, Temnikova & Kasela,

Occupying the English Gardens of Regent’s Park, Frieze Sculpture will remain on view through October 31. Curator Clare Lilley, the Director of Programme at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, has selected works surrounding themes like architecture, environmental concerns, and geopolitical power structures. This expansive outdoor presentation encompasses work like Daniel Arsham’s post-apocalyptic Bronze Eroded Melpomene, a narrative on civic navigation by Isamu Noguchi titled Play Sculpture, and a look at our endangered future, Event Horizon, by Stoyan Dechev.

Other happenings to save time for include the 2021 iteration of the Live program, the roster of talks surrounding artistic collaboration and economies of exchange, and the presentation “Unworlding”—an exhibition curated by Cédric Fauq sharing artworks by creators who are focused on the undoing of the world as we know it. This year’s fair also marks the debut of the Editions sector, which highlights top publishers of editioned works, including those working with artists like Paula Rego, Julie Mehretu, and Yinka Shonibare.
