Artlyst’s Essential Frieze Week Art Guide 2016 Including Collateral And Satellite Events

Frieze Week Art Guide 2016

Announcing Artlyst’s 2016 Frieze Week Guide, a tried and tested lyst of the events not to miss during the busiest week in the London Contemporary Art calendar. This events guide is one of the most respected Frieze and Frieze week collateral Art Fair guides produced.  We update it on a daily basis adding new events as they ‘Pop-Up’! This includes important information about the main fair and the satellite events launching the week of 3 October 2016. Please make sure you return again and again over the next two weeks.

Each year Artlyst curates an indispensable information lyst covering the best exhibitions and events on offer during Frieze week.  Frieze and Frieze Masters promises to showcase an up to date overview of the current art market allowing art lovers to pay homage to the best (and some of the worst) in visual art.  Like Art Basel and Art Basel Miami, these fairs make no bones about being massive art trade shows. The galleries involved are there to sell and this year the main Frieze fair showcases 160 of the world’s leading contemporary art galleries. Whatever you do, don’t miss the smaller art fairs and events that are springing up like dandelions all around the capital next week.

Frieze London 2016

South of The Regent’s Park

6-9 Oct

Taking place a week earlier this year, Frieze London brings together over 160 of the world’s leading galleries from New York to Berlin and Shanghai to São Paulo, to showcase works by newly discovered artists alongside some of the most respected names in contemporary art.

 Sections include:

– The Nineties – in which galleries will revisit seminal exhibitions from the 1990s such as Wolfgang Tillman’s first exhibition at Daniel Buchholz’s gallery in 1993.

– Live – the section for performance and participatory art

– Focus – where you can discover emerging talent from around the globe

– Frieze Projects – the non-profit programme of new artist commissions

– Frieze talks – Taking place daily at the Frieze London, the 2016 programme is curated by Christy Lange (Associate Editor & Curator of Public Programming, Frieze) and Gregor Muir (Executive Director, ICA, London and incoming Director of Collection, International Art, Tate).

For the first time, Frieze Talks presents a special daily series of lunchtime discussions focusing on a single, urgent theme—’Borderlands’. From the recent ‘Brexit’ to Donald Trump’s plans for a border wall, from the ongoing refugee crisis to debates over ‘safe spaces’, artists and others have been invited to discuss the geographic, social and psychological borders that we construct and fight to break down. What role can art play in this process? Speakers include Fatima Al Qadiri, Alexandra Bachzetsis, Hannah Black, Josh Kline, Jill Magid, Ben Rivers, and much more.
