Frieze Art Fair 2009 will Present Outstanding Work by More 1,000 Artists
Yael Bartana - 2008.
LONDON.- The Directors of Frieze Art Fair, Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, have announced the details of the 2009 fair. Frieze Art Fair is the UK’s most important art event and one of the world’s most influential contemporary art fairs. Sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the sixth consecutive year, Frieze Art Fair 2009 is a tightly selected presentation of the most forward-thinking galleries from around the globe. The selected galleries will present outstanding work by over 1,000 of the world’s most innovative artists and these works will be presented alongside Frieze Art Fair’s unique curatorial programme of artists’ projects. Frieze Art Fair helps set the international contemporary art agenda.

A fresh and exciting addition for 2009 will be the first presentation of Frame, a new section within the fair dedicated to solo artist presentations. Frame will show young galleries from around the world that have been in existence for less than six years. The galleries selection has been advised by curators Daniel Baumann and Sarah McCrory.

2009 will see a total of 162 galleries exhibiting at Frieze Art Fair, including leading galleries from across America and Europe. The strength of galleries from emerging territories such as Asia and Eastern Europe continues this year - galleries new to the fair include Kukje Gallery from Seoul (South Korea), Galerie Plan B from Cluj (Romania) and The Third Line from Dubai (UAE). Also new in 2009 are Lisboa 20 Arte Contemporânea from Lisbon (Portugal), Office Baroque from Antwerp (Belgium), Kamm from Berlin (Germany) and hiromiyoshii from Tokyo (Japan).

Every autumn Frieze Art Fair reinvigorates the artistic and cultural scene in the UK, bringing an annual focus, which is widely known as Frieze Week, to contemporary art in London. British galleries exhibiting for the first time this year include Hollybush Gardens, Limoncello and Ancient & Modern (all from London), and Ingleby from Edinburgh.

Co-directors Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover commented, “Against a tough economic backdrop, we are delighted that so many new and established galleries continue to want to show their best work at Frieze Art Fair. Applications to the new Frame section were so strong we were able to almost double the anticipated size of the section which means that collectors, curators and general visitors alike will be able to enjoy not only a wealth of solo presentations from the UK and US but also less well-known territories ranging from Australia to Lithuania. The art world is increasingly global and we are proud to have that represented at the 2009 fair.
