If you live in and around Regent's Park you will know that you're on the doorstep of world famous London Zoo and wonderful productions at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre. Perhaps less well known, but definitely an Autumn highlight worth a visit, is the annual Frieze London Fair. Every October this contemporary art event takes place in a huge, custom built structure in the heart of London's Regent's Park.
Located in the south of the park, this year's hotly anticipated Frieze Art Fair takes place from the 15th to the 18th October 2014. The main focus of the fair is contemporary, edgy art, to simply look at and enjoy, or to buy and sell. That said, there is a respectful aura around 'Frieze Masters' which houses paintings from the likes of Rembrandt, Rubens and the rest!
Frieze Art Fair, Regent's Park, now in its 12th year, attracts over a 1,000 new and established international artists, featuring in more than 160 of the most exciting galleries in the world. As well as an extraordinary array of artists and artistic styles, the fair also features special commissions, debates and lectures. This year's event included 'Live Spaces' a new attraction, where art and performance connect, creating one time only installations.
Highlights this year included work by artist Eric Bainbridge, Barbara T Smith, Lee Kit and Goshka Macuga. Frieze Art London is a must for anyone who's anyone in the contemporary art world and anyone who just loves the idea of looking and learning more about leading artists in a truly unique setting.
