This year fair brings together more than 160 of the world’s leading galleries, showcasing today’s most significant artists across its main and curated sections, alongside the fair’s celebrated non-profit programme of ambitious new artist commissions and talks. The fair will debute a new gallery section, The Nineties, recreating seminal exhibitions from the decade, alongside the return of sections Focus and Live, the definitive platforms for emerging galleries and performance art respectively. Frieze London coincides with Frieze Masters and the Frieze Sculpture Park, convening art of the highest quality from a spectrum of periods and countries and offering collectors, scholars and art enthusiasts an unparalleled cultural experience.
