Sunday 19 October is the last day to see Frieze Masters, one of London’s most popular art exhibitions which takes place every October.
This year marks the third edition of the fair which features art from ancient to modern, taking place on Gloucester Green in London’s Regent’s Park from 15–19 October 2014 and is sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the third consecutive year. Designed by New York-based Selldorf Architects, Frieze Masters benefits from a contemporary, elegant environment where ancient and modern art can be shown side by side. Coinciding with and within walking distance of Frieze London, together the two fairs encourage a crossover between audiences of contemporary and historical art.
Frieze Masters is a carefully selected presentation of 127 of the world’s lead- ing galleries, with 107 participants in the main section and 20 in the Spotlight section of the fair which is dedicated to solo presentations of artists from the twentieth century.
Participating galleries will bring art ranging from the ancient era and Mod- ern Masters. New exhibitors in 2014 include: Marian Goodman Gallery (New York), Paula Cooper Gallery (New York), Daxer & Marschall (Munich), Kunstkammer Georg Laue (Munich), Helly Nahmad Gallery (London), Pace Gallery (London), The Weiss Gallery (London), Ariadne Galleries (London), Craig F. Starr Gallery (New York); Berwald Oriental Art (New York).
Spotlight, a section of the fair is dedicated to solo presentations of art- ists working throughout the 20th century. It will offer visitors the chance to discover artists working throughout the world, from 14 territories including: Austria, Brazil, India, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Serbia, South Africa, UK and USA. The selection of galleries in Spotlight is advised by curator Adriano Pedrosa.
