Frieze Art Fair 2012 opens in London on October 10 with 175 international contemporary galleries. The Tenth Edition of Frieze will include Frieze Masters, a contemporary take on historical art, and Focus, a special section for newly established galleries.
The tenth edition of Frieze London, the leading international contemporary art fair, takes place in London’s Regent’s Park from 11–14 October 2012.
With exhibitors from 35 countries, the tenth edition of Frieze London is the most international event organized by Frieze; confirming the fair’s position as one of the world’s leading contemporary art events. Frieze London is a carefully selected presentation of 175 of the most forward- thinking contemporary galleries and will present new work by over 1,000 of the world’s most innovative artists. This year the fair is once again housed in a bespoke temporary structure designed by architects Carmody Groarke.
The tenth edition features a new section: Focus, open to galleries established after 2001, showing up to three artists.. The Frame section of the fair is dedicated to galleries under six-years old, showing solo artist presentations.
This year, coinciding with Frieze London, Frieze also introduces Frieze Masters, a new fair with a contemporary perspective on historical art. Together the crossover between the two fairs will make London the focus for a broad international art audience.
