LONDON.- Frieze has announced today the details of their 12th contemporary art fair in London, bringing together over 160 of the world’s leading contemporary galleries. New for 2014 is a restructuring of the sections for participating galleries, introducing ‘Live’, a showcase for performance-based installations dispersed throughout the fair. Frieze London will take place 15–18 October 2014 in Regent’s Park, London and is sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the 11th consecutive year.

Frieze London is one of the world’s leading contemporary art fairs and brings an international art audience to the UK capital every October. For the third year, Frieze London will coincide with Frieze Masters, a fair that gives a contemporary perspective on historical art, which also takes place in Regent’s Park, London. Together the two fairs bring an unrivalled range of art together with an international art audience and benefit from a crossover of visitors.

Participating Galleries
Frieze London continues to have a strong global reach with attendance from galleries and artists from all across the world. Participating exhibitors represent territories including Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, S.Korea, Mexico, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Turkey, UAE, UK and USA.

Solo presentations that promise to be focal points in the fair include: Mark Grotjahn (Anton Kern Gallery, New York); Goshka Macuga (Kate McGarry, London); Lee Kit (Vitamin Creative Space, Guangzhou); Martin Creed (Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle, Berlin); Eric Bainbridge (Workplace Gallery, Gateshead); Koo Jeong A (Pilar Corrias Gallery, London) and Barbara T Smith (The Box, Los Angeles).

Additions to last year’s exhibitors include: Galerie Catherine Bastide (Brussels); Galeria Elba Benitez (Madrid); BQ (Berlin); Mary Mary (Glasgow) Galerie Greta Meert (Belgium); Galerie Nordenhake (Berlin); Shanghart Gallery (Shanghai) and Workplace Gallery (Gateshead). Galleries new to the main section, having previously exhibited in the sections dedicated to young galleries, include: Ancient & Modern (London); The Box (LA); Casas Riegner (Bogota); Hollybush Gardens (London); Mendes Wood DM (São Paulo) and Take Ninagawa (Tokyo).

‘Live’ provides the opportunity to experience ambitious performance-based installations and will include works specially conceived for Frieze as well as the re-staging of a number of important historical pieces. It will appear on a series of platforms that will be dispersed throughout the fair. New galleries to the fair exhibiting in this section are: gb agency (Paris), Green Tea Gallery (Iwake), Project Native Informant (London), Silberkuppe (Berlin) and Galerie Jocelyn Wolff (Paris). The selection of galleries participating in Live is advised by curator Nicola Lees and the section is supported by Associate Sponsor Alexander McQueen.

‘Focus’ has evolved into a more significant section of the fair, dedicated to fostering a community of the most exciting emerging galleries. Those showing in this section will present either solo or group shows that are conceived especially for Frieze. The selection for ‘Focus’ is advised by curators Raphael Gygax and Jacob Proctor, who is a new addition to the team this year.

Notable presentations in ‘Focus’ include: Brian O’Doherty solo (Simone Subal Gallery & P!, both New York); Michael Smith (Dan Gunn, Berlin); a major installation with Atelier Bow Wow (Leo Xu Projects, Shanghai) and a solo presenation by Slavs and Tatars (Raster, Warsaw).

This year both Frieze London and Frieze Masters have new opening hours, Frieze London is open to the public from Wednesday 15 October to Saturday 18 October.

The Frieze Projects programme of new works commissioned specifically for the fair will once again be curated by Nicola Lees; details of the full programme will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

New sponsors of Frieze London this year include Selfridges, who join existing supporters of the fair Deutsche Bank and Alexander McQueen alongside BMW, Champagne Pommery, The Art Fund and media partner the Financial Times.
