What The Dealers Said:

Thaddeus Ropac, Founder: ‘We were so pleased to experience once again the palpable energy that Frieze Week in London has become known for over the past 20 years, a reminder of what makes it so distinct among the international art fairs, having retained a certain special character that it has had from day one. It’s been a strong week for us, with significant sales going to our Asian collectors, proving that London continues to be an international draw.’

Johnny Van Haeften, Founder, Johnny Van Haeften: ‘It’s been a great fair for us: lots of old clients attracted by having more Old Master dealers, with paintings brought by colleagues including Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Brueghel. We have kept up with the moderns by selling two paintings by women artists, proving that female insight is nothing new! Two Musicians by Judith Leyster (1609-1660) went to an American collector, and a still life of flowers by Anna Ruysch (1666-1704) to a new English-based collector. There are also four reservations currently in play and lots of interest: we’ve run out of visiting cards! Very happy as usual and delighted with the response to our selection of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish Old Masters.’

Elliot McDonald, Senior Vice President, Pace: ‘In its 20th year, it’s clear that Frieze is as strong and international as ever. In addition to the main fair, Pace participated in Frieze Sculpture, Frieze Masters and the Talks programme, and we felt that the dialogue between these programmes provided a dynamic platform for our artists to interact with the arts community in new and interesting ways. We also found that each section of the fair created opportunities for us to engage with collectors from around the globe, which resulted in strong sales. We look forward to seeing what the next 20 years have in store for Frieze!’

Neil Wenman, Global Creative Director and Partner, Hauser & Wirth: ‘The 20th edition of Frieze London this year reaffirmed itself as the place to be seen and to immerse in contemporary art in all its colours, shapes and sizes. Alongside the fair, our Avery Singer exhibition, Nicole Eisenman’s Whitechapel survey, Sarah Lucas’ Tate Britain tour de force and Phillip Guston’s Tate retrospective proved that two decades on, London’s strength is its community of curators, creatives, artists, and art lovers.’

Maureen Paley, Founder, Maureen Paley: ‘We’re delighted to have had a wonderful fair. There was an intensity and great energy this year, especially with it being the 20th anniversary! Along with a group of gallery artists, I presented a special work by Gillian Wearing that had previously been shown in her solo exhibition at the Guggenheim in New York and works by Wolfgang Tillmans, following on from his recent solo show at MoMA, New York.’

D’Lan Davidson, Director & Founder, D’Lan Contemporary: ‘It has been a privilege to present the work of Emily Kam Kngwarray, Australia’s most critically acclaimed contemporary First Nations artist, to a global art fair audience for the first time at Frieze Masters. We are thrilled with the response to her work – which has been embraced and celebrated – and to have sold seven works for over $2.7 million. This is a defining moment for Emily, with a solo exhibition at Frieze Masters and an upcoming major retrospective at The National Gallery of Australia later this year, which is set to travel to Europe and the US.’

Alison Jacques, Founder, Alison Jacques: ‘This was the first year post-Covid we felt Frieze was back to being a fully international fair attendance-wise. It was great to see so many American collectors back. Twenty years on, Frieze London continues to be a must on our calendar, and despite these uncertain times, with angst and sorrow all around us, the art we saw this week provided us with a sanctuary.’

Jonny Tanna, Director, Harlesden High Street: ‘We sold out our booth within the first ten minutes of the fair and are thrilled about it. We had sales from the online viewing room as well. All sales have been to private collectors from London, Europe and the US. It’s also been super exciting to showcase emerging artists to international audiences.’

Isabella Icoz, Partner, Lehmann Maupin: 20 years in, Frieze London continues to be an epicentre of the European art market, consistently attracting collectors and galleries worldwide. After the preview hours, we’ve placed works with essential collections in Hong Kong, the United States, the United Kingdom, Turkey, France, Japan and more. The long-time presence of Frieze has helped establish London as a top-tier destination for the global market, and we’re looking forward to continuing to grow our footprint in the city next year.’

Gallery Hyundai: ‘Our booths at Frieze London and Masters were received with incredible enthusiasm this year. Our Artist-to-Artist solo booth with recent works by Ayoung Kim received critical acclaim, with Tate acquiring Kim’s video work Delivery Dancer’s Sphere (2022) and wallpaper installation Evening Peak Time is Back (2022) for their permanent collection. At Frieze Masters, we presented a solo booth of the Korean painter Shin Sung Hy. We are pleased with the enthusiasm our international clients (both existing and walk-ins) have shown and believe that our sales results prove Shin’s potential in the market in years to come.’

Nigel Dunkley, Co-Founder, Union Pacific: ‘We are delighted with our first edition as exhibitors in the main section, after showing in the Focus section for several years. We introduced new audiences to a selection of our artists, including Niklas Asker, who currently has a solo exhibition at our new space in Bloomsbury. We were pleased to place most of the artworks with existing and new international clients.’

Hyun-Sook Lee, Founder & Chairwoman of Kukje Gallery: ‘We are delighted to see a bustle of energy at Frieze London once again, highlighted by an increase in Asian collectors. Throughout the fair, it was especially positive to see much interest and curiosity in the sculptural works of Kim Yu Shin, the pioneering female sculptor from Korea — an artist we are showing for the first time at Frieze London. Meanwhile, international collectors showed continued interest in Korean artists such as Park Seo-Bo, Ha Chong-Hyun, Kibong Rhee, Lee Kwang-Ho, Kyungah Ham, Haegue Yang, and Suki Seokyeong Kang. Our joint booth curated with Mazzoleni Art at Frieze Masters was acclaimed for its idea of bringing Korean and Italian masters together. Last but not least, we were deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Park Seo-Bo during the fair; as the late artist’s companion in promoting Dansaekhwa around the world, the Gallery will continue to spread the importance of his art globally.’

Tina Kim, Founder Tina Kim Gallery: ‘We placed works with institutions, foundations, corporate collections, and private collectors. Frieze London was a good opportunity to continue conversations about artists where we introduced new bodies of work in Frieze Seoul, such as Ghada Amer, Kang Seok Ho, and Mike Lee. The European market has always been an enthusiastic supporter of our historic Dansaekhwa program, so with rising global institutional interest, we are seeing good demand. There are still works on reserve that we expect to close soon.’

Timothy Taylor, Founder, Timothy Taylor: ‘Frieze’s 20th anniversary was the perfect opportunity to unveil an ambitious presentation by Eddie Martinez alongside a solo exhibition of his new works at the Gallery. We felt a palpable energy at the booth throughout the week, translating into strong sales to collectors from the UK, USA, Europe and Asia, including a major US arts institution – a powerful testament to London’s unwavering status as a leading arts centre. We’re proud to have exhibited at Frieze London since the first edition and to have been part of the evolution of this iconic event.’

Nicole Estilo Kaiser, Associate Director, Public: ‘We’ve had an incredible first time at Frieze London with our presentation of Adam Farah-Saad, receiving the Focus Stand Prize and placing numerous works in the Tate’s national collection. The engagement and conversations with institutions and collectors alike have exceeded anything we could have anticipated. We’re incredibly grateful for the opportunity to participate and hope to be back in the coming years with equally ambitious projects.’

Justina Gomez Romero, Sales Director, Praxis: ‘We want to thank Frieze for creating a special section Artist-to-Artist to celebrate the 20th anniversary, as the fair’s magnitude can change the course of a gallery and an artist. We were blown away by the response and sold out the booth in the first three hours; by the end of the first day, we had sold all our inventory. Both Simonette Quamina, proposed by Alvaro Barrington, and the Gallery have benefitted very positively from this experience.’

Maria Varnava, Founder and Director, Tiwani Contemporary: ‘2023 has been our first year in the main section at Frieze, showing a group presentation of longstanding gallery artists with new additions to our roster, and we’ve been delighted with the response. This has been another excellent Frieze for us, providing a robust and confident start to the fair season. With the opening of our new Cork Street gallery, this edition of Frieze has re-confirmed London as a crucial centre for presenting artists from Africa and its diasporas, as well as the city’s dominant position in the art ecosystem in general.’

Will Elliott, Director, Elliott Fine Art: ‘We are delighted with how Frieze Masters has gone, making twelve sales between us — Colnaghi and Elliott Fine Art — across the opening days. As well as two works which are moving forward by North American institutions, other highlights sales include an important Greek rhyton, a painting and a drawing by Suzanne Fabry, and a portrait drawing by Françoise Gilot, all for mid to high five figures and all to private European collections.’

Camille Houzé, Director, Nicoletti: ‘We are delighted about our participation in Focus this year. We have had very insightful conversations, met a substantial number of new collectors, both local and international, and sold most of the works on display, with ongoing discussions as of Saturday morning. We also won the FLUXUS-CPGA Prize, a fantastic financial opportunity regarding the visibility it gives to our Gallery and the artist we are showing.’

Pippy Houldsworth, Founder, Pippy Houldsworth: ‘Frieze London 2023 has been our most successful Frieze London to date, with collectors and international curators keen to acquire works by both our emerging artists and those of the older generation, Mary Kelly and Jacqueline de Jong.’

Luigi Mazzoleni, Owner and Founding Director, Mazzoleni: ‘Frieze Masters is a highlight of our annual fair calendar, and this year has proved no different, with a buoyant and optimistic atmosphere felt throughout. Despite the challenging economic and political situation, we saw a lot of interest in Italian masters, including Salvo and Agostino Bonalumi.’

Adrian Sassoon, Founder, Adrian Sassoon: ‘A solo presentation from the artist Elizabeth Fritsch’s studio has mesmerised longstanding admirers, collectors, and visitors unfamiliar with her decades of work. Both British and international buyers have acquired several of these historic pieces. The artist herself has been present and thrilled with the display of her work, which is surely a rare event at Frieze Masters.’

Leila Alexander, Senior Director, White Cube: ‘We are proud to have been a part of Frieze London since the very beginning and marking both Frieze’s 20th anniversary, as well as 30 years of White Cube, we have been excited to show at Masters for the first time alongside Frieze London. It continues to be one of the most important moments of the global art world calendar. The past days have proved highly successful for us, with many notable sales from the fair by artists including Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley, Marguerite Humeau, Jessica Rankin, Gilbert & George, Cerith Wyn Evans, Sara Flores, Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, Cinga Samson, Anselm Kiefer and Ibrahim Mahama. We have also placed several works spanning installation, sculpture and works on paper by Mona Hatoum across Frieze London and her solo presentation at Frieze Masters.’

Daniel Crouch, Founder, Daniel Crouch Rare Books: ‘Frieze Masters has become our favourite fair, with a great mix of international customers, new, old and nationalities. It’s really lovely to come somewhere that brings us fresh customers every year.’

Hugo Wheeler, Founder, Hot Wheels: ‘For this year’s edition of Frieze London, we were very proud to show a video installation by Jordan Strafer in collaboration with Heidi, Berlin. A curious and enthusiastic audience has very well received this ambitious presentation. Many people watched the full 25-minute video, which was a pleasant surprise.’

Juan Luis Balarezo, Director, Crisis: ‘In our first Frieze London participation, we have been impressed by the bustling scene and eagerness to discover artists from across the globe. We are pleased with Tate’s decision to acquire a large format painting by Peruvian artist Santiago Yahuarcani, which has further consolidated interest by international collectors in his work. We are also thrilled by the reception of Gala Berger, whose work has joined prestigious collections in Southeast Asia and Western Europe.’
