Yesterday I had the chance to visit Frieze Art Fair, a world-famous international organization that presents more than 160 contemporary art galleries, the most popular works of different artists, lectures of significant industry insiders and much more. The fair is over but I wanted to share my impressions in case you missed it, or couldn’t get enough of it like me :) Keep on reading to find out more!
It was my first time visiting Frieze, and I can say that from now on it’s definitely a must-go event for me. It was in a big tent-like construction made specially for the organization in The Regents Park. As it was Saturday, it was very crowded inside which made it hard to walk around. Even though at first I thought that it would be hard to explore the whole place in one day, I was wrong since it was very well-organized and I was able to see all the galleries in a few hours.
As soon as we started walking around, I felt really fascinated and even overwhelmed because there were so many beautiful and appealing pieces on every corner. Some of the most striking examples of contemporary art were displayed, and installations, sculptures in different forms and works where mirrors and reflections are prominent were seen a lot. Besides the works of the most famous artists such as Tracey Emin, there were also works of hugely talented emerging artists which I thought was wonderful.
The fair also included a Sculpture Park in the English Gardens, consisting of 16 works by different artists. I wasn’t able to see all of them but especially the huge balloon painted with oil as earth was quite impressive.
Some of my favorite works from the fair are below:)
Hope you enjoyed it, thanks for reading!
