LONDON.- Today Frieze opened Frieze Sculpture in London, selected by Clare Lilley (Director of Programme at Yorkshire Sculpture Park) and presented in collaboration with leading galleries from around the world. Creating a major public art display at the heart of London, Frieze Sculpture brings together more than 20 international artists to present new and modern artworks in monumental scale, all placed around the English Gardens of The Regent’s Park. Building on Frieze’s commitment to emerging artists, logistics partner Mtec again supported the installation of two works presented by young London galleries. Frieze Sculpture opens in The Regent’s Park at the heart of London, from 3 July to 6 October 2019, with free admission to all.

Selected by Lilley from an open call for gallery applications, the participating artists for Frieze Sculpture 2019 are: Iván Argote, Ghazaleh Avarzamani, Huma Bhabha, Peter Buggenhout, Jodie Carey, Ma Desheng, Tracey Emin, Lars Fisk, Barry Flanagan, Charlie Godet Thomas, Leiko Ikemura, Robert Indiana, Vik Muniz, Zak Ové, Jaume Plensa, Bettina Pousttchi, Tom Sachs, Lucy Skaer, LR Vandy, Joanna Rajkowska, TaiJung Um, Bill Woodrow and Emily Young.

Jo Stella-Sawicka (Artistic Director, Frieze London) said: “Frieze Sculpture has developed into an unmissable annual destination for Londoners and international art lovers alike. The English Gardens will once again transform into a museum without walls, making an unparalleled quality of work accessible to all. We’re hugely grateful for the support of the Royal Parks and our participating galleries for making this possible. Thanks to Clare Lilley’s curatorial vision, Frieze Sculpture has always been exceptionally ambitious, and this year’s display will feature master of Pop Art, Robert Indiana, with a work which is also Frieze’s largest exhibited sculpture to date; alongside contemporary artists from the UK and all over the world such as Huma Bhabha and Tracey Emin. We’re also thrilled to build on our support for younger galleries and artists through the Mtec Bursary.”

Launched in 2018, the Mtec Bursary supports young galleries and emerging artists to reach larger audiences, by enabling their participation in Frieze Sculpture. In 2019, Mtec covered the costs of installation and de-installation for two London-based galleries: VITRINE presenting Cloud Study (Partner Dance) (2019) by Bermudian-British artist Charlie Godet Thomas whose work explores the intersection of art and literature; and Edel Assanti presenting Cord (2019) by Jodie Carey, the British artist who recently exhibited at the Foundling Museum (London).

Clare Lilley said: “Frieze Sculpture represents the extraordinary strength and vitality of this form of art, and this year’s edition is as creative as ever. Sculptures which are sure to capture the public’s imagination include ONE through ZERO in Corten steel by Robert Indiana, a monumental example of the iconic American artist’s fascination with the power of numbers; a pure white 3-metre-high rendition of children’s storybook character My Melody, by New York-based sculptor Tom Sachs; and at over 4-metreslong, a bronze figure entitled When I Sleep that is both touching and perturbing, by seminal British artist Tracey Emin. A full-size reproduction of a 1973 Jaguar E-Type Matchbox toy car by Brazilian artist Vik Muniz speaks of childhood memories and questions value within art history, as does a 3-metre-high bronze by Pakistani-American Huma Bhabha with its references to ancient sculpture and recent sci-fi. Sited in relation to the landscape forms and beautiful trees of the English Garden of The Regent’s Park, this temporary sculpture park, with works by prominent artists from around the world, promises to intrigue and give pleasure to the many hundreds of thousands of residents, workers and tourists who will visit the gardens over the summer months.”

Frieze Sculpture is accompanied by a free Audio Tour by Clare Lilley in the new, freely downloadable Frieze Art Fairs App. The app launched on 2 July on frieze.com/sculpture.
