To Dream, to Collect

The 14th edition of Frieze Art Fair opens to the general public today, 6 October, in London.

Nowadays, Frieze can be considered as one of the world’s most important art fairs, made by hundreds of commercial art galleries who sell artworks of thousands of artists. Visitors may feel amused and confused, spending all day wandering round the vast marquees in Regent’s Park and still not feeling they have seen everything.

An highly exciting Art Week will occur in London during the next days. A pleasant nightmare for international collectors, artists and galleries, with a huge offer of cultural events, fairs, parties, debates and vernissage.

The first stage is undoubtely Frieze London, in London's beautiful Regent's Park, featuring more than 160 of the world’s leading galleries. Visitors will join contemporary art from over 1,000 of today’s leading artists, while experiencing various Talks programmes together with the famous non profit Frieze Projects, supported by LUMA Foundation and curated by Raphael Gygax.

The Italian presence of galleries is definitely quite strong, as in the past editions. Within the main section: Massimo De Carlo, Federico Vavassori, Fonti, Lia Rumma, Frutta, Lorcan O’Neill and many other important names from the Italian contemporary art scenario. The "Nineties" section will be another collateral event, curated by Nicolas Trembley, with a particular focus on Nineties, a crucial decade for famous artists such as Maurizio Cattelan, Rikrit Tiravanija and Carsten Höller. Moreover, live performances with a strong attention to emerging talents, to whom a whole platform is dedicated.

Passing through the fascinating Sculpture Park, one can be immediately absorbed by the giant Frieze Masters, the fair entirely dedicated to Old Masters.

Among the Italians exhibitors: A arte Invernizzi, Antichità Bacarelli, Botticelli Antichità Firenze, Cardi, Massimo De Carlo, Galleria Continua, P420 Bologna, Robilant+Voena, Galleria Tega, Tornabuoni Art and others.
