Frieze Announces Details of Fourteenth Edition of London Fair

Frieze has announced the participating galleries, curators, and artists for the fourteenth editions of Frieze London and Frieze Projects, as well as the fifth edition of Frieze Masters, all scheduled to take place October 6–9, 2016.

This year’s Frieze London fair will bring together more than 160 contemporary-art galleries from thirty countries and will include solo presentations by artists such as James Turrell and Philippe Parreno. A new gallery section titled “The ’90s,” organized by Geneva-based curator Nicolas Trembley, will feature re-creations of seminal exhibitions from that decade, including Wolfgang Tillman’s first exhibition at Galerie Buchholz in 1993 and Pierre Joseph’s series of performances “Characters to Be Reactivated,” 1991–95. The Frieze Projects artist commissions will include works by Coco Fusco, Julie Verhoeven, and Opendork Afrika, among others. In addition to the return of the Frieze Tate Fund, the Contemporary Art Society’s Collections Fund supporting a regional museum in the UK will launch at Frieze.

Meanwhile, Frieze Masters will convene 134 of the world’s leading historical and modern-art galleries. Curators Toby Kamps (Menil Collection, Houston), Tim Marlow (Royal Academy, London), and Sir Norman Rosenthal will devise sections and programming dedicated to artistic discovery and connoisseurship. The fair will also feature solo presentations of the work of Anni Albers, Lynn Chadwick, Paula Rego, and Susan Rothenberg. The talks schedule at Frieze Masters will feature Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and Carroll Dunham as well as critic Alistair Sooke and the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Sheena Wagstaff.
