LONDON.- Frieze Projects is a programme of artists’ commissions realised annually at Frieze Art Fair. It is curated by Neville Wakefield and includes seven new projects as well as The Cartier Award and collaborations with this year’s partner institutions CAC Vilnius (Lithuania) and Arte Contempo (Portugal).
The seven artists commissioned to create site-specific work for Frieze Art Fair are Mike Bouchet, Kim Coleman & Jenny Hogarth, Ruth Ewan, Ryan Gander, Per-Oskar Leu, Monika Sosnowska and Stephanie Syjuco. Commenting on this year’s projects, Neville Wakefield stated: "Whether taking the form of grand architectural obstruction or finding new ways of protesting, authenticating or motivating our relationship to the objects we make, look at and buy, this year’s projects create aesthetic opportunity out of the uncertainty that has become the hallmark of our troubled times."
Above all, Frieze Projects presents art that regards the particular circumstances of Frieze Art Fair as an opportunity to create work that could not exist elsewhere.
