LONDON.- The Directors of Frieze Art Fair, Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, have announced today the details of the 2011 fair. Frieze Art Fair is one of the world’s most influential contemporary art fairs and brings an international focus to the dynamic contemporary art scene in London every October. Sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the eighth consecutive year, Frieze Art Fair is a carefully 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. Frieze Projects, the fair’s unique curatorial programme, is also an integral part of the fair and is supported in 2011 for the first time by the Emdash Foundation.

2011 saw more applications than ever to Frieze Art Fair and will see a total of 171 exhibitors from 33 countries. The dynamism of galleries from emerging territories such as Asia and South America is balanced by a strong European and American contingent. Additions to last year’s participants include Galerie Chantal Crousel (Paris), Konrad Fischer Galerie (Dusseldorf), Johnen Galerie (Berlin), Yvon Lambert (Paris), The Pace Gallery (New York), Andrea Rosen Gallery (New York) and Donald Young Gallery (Chicago). Previous Frame exhibitors that are this year exhibiting in the main section of the fair are: Andreiana Mihail Gallery (Bucharest), Project 88 (Mumbai), Rodeo (Istanbul) and Micky Schubert (Berlin).

Frame, a section of the fair dedicated to galleries established less than six years ago and selected on the basis of a proposed solo presentation, features a number of galleries that have not previously benefitted from an international platform to show their work; 21 of the 25 galleries in this section are new to the fair. Notable this year is the strong Latin-American showing in this section with presentations including: Ignacio Liprandi Arte Contemporaneo (Argentina), showing Pablo Accinelli; Revolver (Peru), showing Ximena Garrido-Lecca; Casas Riegner Gallery (Columbia), showing Bernardo Ortiz. Frame is a place to discover artists for the first time; providing the opportunity to see and buy work from artists of all generations that are yet to gain a significant international reputation. The Frame galleries’ selection has been advised by curators Cecilia Alemani and Rodrigo Moura. Frame is supported by Cos.

Co-directors Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover commented, ‘This year we're excited to be working with architects Carmody Groarke, who have proposed an intelligent redesign of the fair. The geographical diversity of the gallery list attests to the art world's increasing globalisation, offering the opportunity to make discoveries as well as see work by some of the most significant artists working today. We're delighted by the continued support from Deutsche Bank, now in their eighth year as main sponsor of the fair. The Financial Times is our media partner for the second time and we are also pleased to have a new supporter for Frieze Projects, the Emdash Foundation, and the introduction of the Emdash Award this year.’

Pierre de Weck, Member of the Group Executive Committee and Global Head of Private Wealth Management, Deutsche Bank added: ‘The vitality and range of art on view most clearly demonstrate why Deutsche Bank continues to be proud to sponsor Frieze Art Fair.’

Details of the curatorial programme Frieze Projects, Frieze Talks, Frieze Film and Frieze Education will be announced during the coming months. The recipient of The Emdash Award will be announced on 16 May.

In previous years Frieze Projects has presented new commissions by artists including Spartacus Chetwynd, Mike Nelson, Richard Prince, Paola Pivi and Nick Relph. Frieze Talks has included keynotes by John Baldessari, Dave Hickey, Yoko Ono and Bridget Riley. This year, Frieze Projects is curated by Sarah McCrory under the auspices of Frieze Foundation and supported by the Emdash Foundation.

The Outset/Frieze Art Fair Fund to benefit the Tate Collection continues in 2011, the ninth consecutive year of the collaboration. This unique partnership enables Tate to buy important works of art for the nation at Frieze Art Fair. The fund to date has raised over £900,000 and, as a result, 83 works by 53 significant international artists have been added to Tate’s collection since 2003.

The Frieze Art Fair Yearbook 2011-12 will be available in September.
