Save the Date: Frieze London 2012

Frieze London will take place 11–14 October 2012 in Regent’s Park, London. Frieze London is one of the world’s most influential contemporary art fairs and brings an international focus to the dynamic contemporary art scene in London every October. Frieze London is a carefully selected presentation of the most forward-thinking contemporary galleries from around the globe and takes place in a bespoke temporary structure, designed this year, once again, by architects Carmody Groarke.

The 10th edition of Frieze London features a new section: Focus is for galleries established after 2001, showing up to 3 artists. Focus was first introduced at Frieze New York, which took place 4–7 May 2012 in Randall’s Island Park, Manhattan. 2012, coinciding with the London fair, 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.

Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, co-directors of Frieze, commented: ‘We are delighted to be presenting our 10th edition. This year is an exciting one for the company. Having successfully launched Frieze New York in May, we’re now looking forward to our two UK fairs. Together Frieze London and Frieze Masters promise to make London in October one of the most anticipated moments in the international art world calendar.’

Participating Galleries
Frieze London will see a total of 170 exhibitors from 34 countries making it the most international edition of Frieze London; confirming its position as one of the world’s leading contemporary art events with participants from territories including Argentina, China, Columbia, Hungary, India, Korea and South Africa. The introduction of Focus brings a fresh perspective to the fair and a globally broad reach with galleries such as: Algus Greenspon (New York), Casas Riegner (Bogota), Jessica Bradley Art + Projects (Toronto), Chatterjee & Lal (Mumbai), Chert (Berlin), dépendance (Brussels), One And J. Gallery (Seoul) and RaebervonStenglin (Zurich).

The geographical diversity of participating galleries continues in Frame, the section of the fair dedicated to galleries established less than 6 years ago and selected on the basis of a proposed solo stand. Frame presentations include: Bani Abidi at Experimenter (Kolkata); Xavier Antin at Galerie Crèvecoeur (Paris); Carolina Caycedo at La Central (Bogota); Lukas Jasansky & Martin Polak at SVIT (Prague); Mike Kuchar at François Ghebaly Gallery (Los Angeles); István Csákány at Kisterem (Budapest) and Lucas Blalock at Ramiken Crucible, (New York).

Frame presents a number of galleries that have not previously benefitted from an international platform to show their work; 16 of the 21 galleries in this section are new to the London fair. The Frame galleries selection has been advised by curators Rodrigo Moura and Tim Saltarelli.
