Frieze London 2018 will showcase the best of international contemporary art, with a discerning selection of around 160 galleries presenting their most forward thinking artists and imaginative presentations. Opening for the first time with a two day Preview, Frieze London coincides with Frieze Sculpture and Frieze Masters in The Regent’s Park, together forming the most significant week in London’s cultural calendar. Global lead partner Deutsche Bank supports Frieze London for the 15th consecutive year, continuing a shared commitment to discovery and artistic excellence.

New collaborations with international curators, institutions and galleries will respond to contemporary issues – from the lack of visibility of women in the marketplace to hidden systems of communication and control – and create an exceptional environment for creativity and discovery.

This year’s themed gallery section, Social Work will feature women artists who challenged the status quo and explored the possibilities of political activism in their art making during the 1980s and ‘90s, from Nancy Spero in the U.S. to Berni Searle in South Africa to Ipek Duben in Turkey and Helen Chadwick in the UK.

Part of Frieze Projects, the Live platform will stage performances and interactive installations throughout the fair, exploring hidden formulas which impact wider social, political, and economic realities, such as Liz Glynn’s interactive dance performance, responding to live data at the fair; Julia Scher’s roaming security guards and surveillance installation; and Pratchaya Phinthong’s exchange of counterfeit currency, revealing the value that politics places on people. In an enclosed space within the fair, Frieze Artist Award winner, Alex Baczynski-Jenkins will continue his choreographic practice engaging with queer relationality and the politics of desire, intimacy and friendship.

Frieze Talks will explore the role of autobiography in art with international participants including Laurie Anderson, Nan Goldin, Kemang Wa Lehulere and Olivia Laing.
