If not I’ve got a way to get you there. This is a review I wrote with Justin Merino and Debora Levi of Kulturspace on London’s Frieze Art Fair. For those of you unfamiliar with this art fair in Regent’s Park, here is a quick rundown:

  • International contemporary art show which takes place every year in October at London’s Regent’s Park
  • Staged by publishers of the art magazine, frieze
  • One of the few fairs to focus only on contemporary art & living artists
  • Features over 170 contemporary art galleries
  • Over 60,000 visitors each year

A Glance at Frieze Art Fair 2014

It’s October and that means it is again time for 60,000 visitors to flood London’s Regent’s Park. At this year’s Frieze London Art Fair there were notable works by Darren Bader, Goshka Macuga, and Greene Netfali along with ballet performances running through the aisles. There was even a playground by Carsten Hollers, “Kinder Garten”, with a giant mushroom and die-shaped play land. T-shirts for sale in the Gap Lounge were displayed behind opened irregular cut wooden doors behind a large, plywood-panelled wall.

With so much going on it was difficult to find a favourite. So, we found two. Brothers Ei and Tomoo Arakawa in Frieze’s new ‘Live’ section and the Helly Nahmad Gallery’s recreation of a 1968 art collector’s flat in Paris in Frieze Masters caught our eyes.
