Frieze London

Culture Art
Frieze London 2019 will bring together more than 160 galleries from 35 countries, representing the fair’s most international edition since its launch. This year’s fair introduces new curators and sections showcasing performance, emerging artists and the contemporary significance of complex art genealogies and colonial legacies. 

Opening 3 to 6 October 2019, Frieze London coincides with Frieze Sculpture and Frieze Masters in The Regent’s Park, together forming the most significant week in London’s cultural calendar.

This year’s fair brings together a new roster of curatorial talent, including Cosmin Costinas (Executive Director/Curator, Para Site, Hong Kong) as curator of the fair’s new themed section Woven, bringing together solo presentations by eight international artists who employ textiles, weaving and tapestry. Diana Campbell-Betancourt (Artistic Director, Samdani Art Foundation, Dhaka and Chief Curator, Dhaka Art Summit) returns as curator of LIVE and the Frieze Artist Award; and Lydia Yee (Chief Curator, Whitechapel Gallery, London) will again co-programme Frieze Talks with Matthew McLean (Senior Editor, Frieze Studios). For the first time, an international committee of gallery peers comprising Stefan Benchoam (Proyectos Ultravioleta, Guatemala City), Edouard Malingue (Edouard Malingue, Hong Kong), and Angelina Volk (Emalin, London) will advise on the selection of participants for Focus, the fair’s section for younger galleries.

Victoria Siddall said: ‘This year’s editions of Frieze London and Frieze Masters embody the exceptional international spirit of London, a city that is a meeting point for art, ideas and people from all over the world. We will welcome the most significant galleries from around the globe, across both fairs, some of whom are joining us for the first time. They represent art and artists from around the globe, from the Asian influence on Collections at Frieze Masters, to new galleries joining Frieze London from Brazil, Lebanon, South Korea and Estonia, as well as leading programmes from the USA and Europe. The two fairs and Frieze Sculpture, along with exhibitions opening during Frieze Week including Kara Walker in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern and Elizabeth Peyton at the National Portrait Gallery, make Frieze in London a vital and truly global cultural moment in the city.’
