Frieze 2017

Frieze Art Fair is here in its 14th edition and this year its as big and bold as ever. I took a wander round one afternoon to see what delights it has in store; it didn’t disappoint. Its a tricky fair in one sense as its hugely overwhelming – the sheer amount of art, people and activity prevents me from really taking the time to engage with new work (nearly 70,000 visitors each year!). On the other hand, it brings together leading galleries who showcase work by fascinating and challenging artists, so its the best place to discover new work…. swings and roundabouts… I actually really enjoyed the fair this year and have listed some of the works I enjoyed the most. The fair is on this weekend so if you fancy a visit, ย book ahead as tickets often sell out https://frieze.com/fairs/frieze-london
