This week, Frieze London launched its 15th edition and once more coincides with Frieze Masters and Frieze Sculpture in Regent’s Park, together forming the heart of Frieze Week (until 8 October).
Art lovers and collectors from across the world will descend into London to see over 160 galleries showcasing artists from more than 31 countries. We've picked out some of the highlights, such as Alicja Kwade’s new installation with Kamel Mennour in Paris coinciding with the Berlin-based artist’s standout inclusion at the Venice Biennale main exhibition, as well as her presence at Frieze Sculpture.
You can also expect a solo show of new work by sculptor Melvin Edwards (with Stephen Friedman Gallery, London), currently featuring in Soul of A Nation at Tate Modern London. There's a new video installation by Hannah Black at Arcadia Missa, coinciding with the artist’s solo exhibition at London’s Chisenhale Gallery.
Thomas Ruff’s solo presentation with Galerie Rudiger Schöttle in Munich coincides with the pioneering photographer’s retrospective at the Whitechapel Gallery.
Elsewhere, there is a new themed gallery section for the 2017 fair devoted to the legacy of radical feminist artists. Sex Work: Feminist Art & Radical Politics is curated by Alison M. Gingeras. It features nine solo presentations of women artists working at the extreme edges of feminist practice during the 1970s and '80s, all sharing a focus on explicit sexual iconography combined with a radical political agency.
Not to be missed. Head over to Regent's Park this week. Details can be found at frieze.com. However, if you're unable to get a ticket to Frieze London then try to catch the sculptural wonders of the talented artists at Frieze Sculpture – a free outdoor display in London’s Regent Park until 8 October. You’ll be able to view sculptures by 25 international artists including masters such as Bernar Venet, KAWS, and Takuro Kuwata.
