Regent’s Park, London
October 14–17, 2015
Frieze London opens this Wednesday at London’s Regent’s Park. The fair occupies a bespoke structure in the park, housing presentations from 160 exhibitors as well as an impressive program of artist projects, talks and conversations, performances, and more. Live, a new section of the fair introduced last year, is dedicated to performance-based installation. This year’s Frieze Projects, an annual presentation of commissioned works, features work by ÅYR, Lutz Bacher, castillo/corrales, Thea Djordjadze, Jeremy Herbert, Asad Raza and Rachel Rose. These projects include an underground chamber built by Jeremy Herbert, sculptures created by Thea Djordjadze inspired by the “Swiss cheese plants” that once lived in Matisse’s studio, a dramatic and cinematic intervention of the entrance corridor by Lutz Bacher, and more. A full list of exhibitors is available on the Frieze website, as is practical information about tickets and fair hours.
Gianfranco Baruchello's witty, intricately detailed 'Interiority Complex' (1966/76) on Massimo de Carlo's stand at #friezelondon. The gallery also has a solo exhibition dedicated to new work by the Italian artist — who recently turned 91(!) — at its Mayfair space until November 21st. Luca Cerizza wrote about Baruchello's oeuvre, which has spanned film, land art, painting, sculpture and more, for a feature in the May 2013 issue of frieze, ahead of the artist's inclusion in Massimiliano Gioni's Venice Biennale exhibition, 'The Encyclopaedic Palace': http://www.frieze.com/issue/article/thought-maps/ @massimodecarlogallery #friezeweek
