The eighth edition of the leading international contemporary art fair takes place in London’s Regent’s Park in mid-October. The three Danish galleries Andersen’s Contemporary, Galleri Nicolai Wallner and Galleri Christina Wilson will all be at the four-day event.
A total of 173 of the world’s most exciting contemporary art galleries, representing 29 countries, will present new work by over 1,000 of the world’s most innovative artists.
The dynamism of galleries from emerging territories such as Asia and South America is balanced by a strong European and American contingent. Galleries new to the main section of the fair include: Bortolami, New York; Pilar Corrias, London; Elizabeth Dee, New York; Xavier Hufkens, Brussels; Michael Lett, Auckland. The successful introduction of Frame, dedicated to galleries under six years old showing solo artist presentations, sees its return in 2010.
A listing of all the galleries with work that they are showing at the fair will be online in the ‘Art Finder’ section of the Frieze Art Fair website and will be online from 11 October.
As part of the fair a project named ‘The Sculpture Park’ will offer a rare opportunity to see a significant group of international work that is addressed on a public scale. Presented in the wonderful setting of the English Gardens of Regent’s Park, the Sculpture Park is located a short walk to the east of the entrance to the fair. Entry to the Sculpture Park is free to the public.
This year’s Sculpture Park presents work by some of the most acclaimed international sculptors working today. These include UK-based Danish artist Marie Lund, who is represented by the Laura Bartlett Gallery in London. Works by her fellow Dane Nina Beier will also be at the fair.
Another Danish artist Jeppe Hein, whose work Appearing Rooms on the Southbank of London was a hugely popular installation in 2008, will present 1-Dimensional Mirror Mobile.
