Redesigned for 2013, Frieze London brings 152 of the world’s leading contemporary galleries to the UK this October. The change in the design of the fair will introduce more sizable public areas and wider aisles as well as a new layout of galleries.The fair is housed in a bespoke temporary structure designed by architects Carmody Groarke to provide the best conditions for showing and viewing art. Additions to last year’s participants include: Blum & Poe (Los Angeles); Marian Goodman (New York); Galerie Max Hetzler (Berlin); Goodman Gallery (Johannesburg); Maccarone (New York); Overduin and Kite (Los Angeles); and Rodeo (Istanbul).Exhibitors from 30 countries will participate in the 11th edition of the fair confirming the fair’s position as one of the world’s leading contemporary art events. This year’s gallery list includes those from territories including Brazil, China, Columbia, Hungary, India, Korea, Mexico and South Africa.The eleventh edition features two specialist sections: Focus, dedicated to galleries up to ten years old presenting projects specifically conceived for Frieze, and Frame, for young galleries who will show solo artist presentations.
The selection of the Frame galleries was advised by curators Rodrigo Moura and Tim Saltarelli. For the second time Frieze will present Frieze Masters, to coincide with Frieze London, a new fair with a contemporary perspective on historical art. Together the crossover between the two fairs build a broad international art audience.Public opening dates and hours:Thursday 17 October: 12-7pm
