London Abuzz Over Frieze Art Fair
Next week, from October 15-18, London will be flooded with art lovers coming to town for the 7th annual Frieze Art Fair. A staggering 1,000+ contemporary artists from all over the world—from Berlin to São Paulo to Tokyo—will be represented.
If you can’t make it, you can get in the spirit of things by listening to the free podcasts available on the website. Hear Zaha Hadid speak about the relationship of architecture to museums or Philippe Vergne, the chief curator of the Walker Art Center, lead a discussion about how art translates across borders.
Also buzzing right now in the London arts scene, the private collection of developer James Brett will soon be on display at the new Museum of Everything. The Primrose Hill space will house thousands of pieces of outsider art, or art brut, and opens Wednesday, October 14th, in conjunction with Frieze.
