After Conquering New York, Frieze Art Fair Announces Exhibitors for the 2012 London Edition

27 May '12 by the editors | Source: artinfo.com

Hot on the heels of its first New York outing, London’s Frieze Art Fair has just released the full list of exhibitors for 2012. The fair will take place, like every year, in Regent’s Park from October 11 through 14.

This 10th edition promises to be busier than ever. Besides the 170 exhibitors in the main part of the fair, Focus — a section dedicated to galleries established after 2001, first introduced at Frieze New York — will continue in London. Focus exhibitors are encouraged to present a curated booth displaying up to three artists. Newcomers for this edition include Algus Greenspon (New York), Chatterjee & Lal (Mumbai), and One And J. Gallery (Seoul).

The Frame section, devoted to solo presentations by galleries less than six years old, is curated this year by Rodrigo Moura and Tim Saltarelli. It will feature 21 galleries, 16 of which are appearing at the fair for the first time. Among them, Kolkota’s Experimenter will be presenting Bani Abidi, Paris’ Galerie Crèvecoeur will show Xavier Antin, and New York’s Ramiken Crucible will display works by Lucas Blalock.

A stone’s throw from the big tent, designed once again by architects Carmody Groarke, Frieze Masters will make its debut with 99 galleries presenting what fair co-director Amanda Sharp described as “pre-21st century art.”

Sharp and her partner Matthew Slotover are as confident as ever: “Having successfully launched Frieze New York in May, we’re now looking forward to our two UK fairs,” they stated. “Together Frieze London and Frieze Masters promise to make London in October one of the most anticipated moments in the international art world calendar.”
