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.
What to expect at Frieze London
Frieze London brings together leading art galleries and artists. It starts on the Wednesday with an Invitation-only Preview. It then runs until Sunday and is open everyday from midday through until 7pm. The event finishes early on the Sunday, closing at 6pm but this still gives plenty of time to browse the collections on show.
Other highlights include the non-profit programme of new artist commissions, a lively series of talks, guided tours, impressive large-scale works in the Frieze Sculpture Park, and a selection of pop-ups from London’s favourite restaurants.
Stars from the music, fashion and film worlds are often seen at this event. Previous guests have included Gwyneth Paltrow, Lily Allen, Eva Herzigova, Kate Bosworth and Emma Watson.
Event hotspots and hospitality
Last year, Frieze introduced a VIP Room at the 34 Mayfair restaurant at the show and this was definitely the place to be seen. There are lots of places to dine or find a snack, with the champagne bar, which serves Ruinart, an obvious destination for many.
Did you know
This is one of the most popular art events in the world and all tickets are limited, so they often sell out.
There are three international art fairs that are run by Frieze, which is a media and events company that also comprises four publications, friezemagazine, frieze d/e, Frieze Masters Magazine and Frieze Week. The events are Frieze London, Frieze New York and Frieze Masters.
