Frieze Art Fair – ottobre 2011




Al via la nona edizione di Frieze Art Fair, ospitata in una nuovissima tensostruttura progettata dallo studio di architettura Carmody Groarke, allestita sempre a Regent’s Park, fino a domenica 16 ottobre 2011.
Quest’anno sono 173 le gallerie selezionate, 5 le italiane: Massimo De Carlo,  Giò Marconi e Zero da Milano con Franco Noero, Torino e Lorcan O’Neill, Roma. Alla fiera supercontemporanea se ne aggiungono altre collaterali come Sunday dove ogni galleria presenta il lavoro di un artista massimo due, quest’anno partecipa la galleria Francesca Minini, Milano con Francesco Simeti. Moniker dedicata alla street art, nata lo scorso anno, presenti le opere di due artisti italiani: Marco ‘Pho’ Grassi e PeetaMoving Image tutta votata allavideo arte, nata nel marzo scorso in occasione dell’Armory Show di New York, vede la partecipazione della galleria Impronte Contemporary Art di Milano. E Multiplied Contemporary Editions Fair, sponsorizzata da Christie’s, specializzata in multipli e stampe. Cancellata invece Scope Art Show. (vedi fondo pagina)


Oltre a Frieze Art Fair 2011 è attesa nel maggio del 2012 una fiera gemella a New York. A questa si aggiungerà un’altra tutta dedicata ai maestri: Old Masters e Masters del XX secolo a Londra per l’ottobre 2012, una settimana dopo quella canonica che celebra il contemporaneo. Insomma delle ottime premesse per festeggiare i 10 anni di attività.


Per un assaggio di quello che propone Frieze Art Fair c’è il tour virtuale che permette anche di ottimizzare l’eventuale visita tra gli stand, circoscrivendo la ricerca per categoria (scultura, installazione, pittura), tecnica, età dell’artista, etc. Oltre alla finestra on-line c’è la consueta applicazione per i-phone e i-pad, non risultano invece applicazioni android per altri smartphone come accade in altre fiere d’oltre oceano.

comunicato stampa

The ninth edition of the leading international contemporary art fair takes place in London’s Regent’s Park from 13–16 October 2011. The fair is sponsored by Deutsche Bank.


2011 saw more applications than ever to Frieze Art Fair and will see a total of 173 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.


Frieze Projects
Frieze Projects is a unique programme of artists’ commissions realised annually at Frieze Art Fair. This year the Projects are curated by Sarah McCrory and are supported by the Emdash Foundation.

The artists commissioned to create these eight site-specific works for Frieze Art Fair are: Bik Van der Pol, Pierre Huyghe, Christian Jankowski, Oliver Laric, LuckyPDF, Peles Empire, Laure Prouvost and Cara Tolmie.

This year’s programme incorporates a number of unique viewpoints throughout the fair that will demand a shift in viewers’ perception.


The Emdash Award
The winner of the Emdash Award 2011 is the video and performance artist Anahita Razmi, who is based in Stuttgart. Razmi will present a new commission that intends to draw attention to how Tehran’s skyline was recently used by protestors after the Iranian presidential election. She will use choreographer Trisha Brown’s 1971 work Roof Piece, which took place on 12 different rooftops over a ten-block area in downtown New York, as its point of departure. The work will be presented as a video installation at Frieze Art Fair.

Frieze Film
Frieze Film is a programme of artist films screened to coincide with Frieze Art Fair. This year it is curated by Sarah McCrory and includes five commissioned films that will be shown in the auditorium at the fair and will be previewed in a new post-watershed Channel 4 arts slot during the week of Frieze Art Fair from Monday 10 October to Friday 14 October.
The artists commissioned to make new work for Frieze Film are: Ed Atkins, Lutz Bacher, Anthea Hamilton, Judith Hopf and Katarina Zdjelar.

Frieze Talks
John Bock, Daniel Buren, Adam Curtis, Alison Knowles and Taryn Simon, are all part of the international line-up of highly respected artists, filmmakers, curators and cultural commentators taking part in Frieze Talks 2011. Frieze Talks is a daily programme of keynote lectures, panel debates and discussions that take place in the auditorium at Frieze Art Fair. It is presented by Frieze Foundation and programmed by the editors of frieze magazine, Jennifer Higgie, Jörg Heiser and Dan Fox.

Sculpture Park
The Sculpture Park offers a rare opportunity to see a significant group of international work that is addressed on a public scale. Presented in the wonderful setting of the English Gardens of Regent’s Park, the Sculpture Park is located a short walk to the east of the entrance to the fair. The Sculpture Park is free to the public. This year’s Sculpture Park presents work by some of the most acclaimed international sculptors. These include new works by Thomas Houseago and Claudia Fontes, as well as pieces by Tom Friedman and Kiki Smith.

The Stand Prize
The third year of the Frieze Art Fair Stand Prize, sponsored by Champagne Pommery, will be judged by: Tom Eccles (Director, The Centre for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, New York); Karola Kraus (Director, MUMOK, Vienna); Stéphanie Trembley (Independent Curator, Beaux Arts magazine, Paris). A prize of 10,000 GBP will go to the most innovative gallery stand at the fair. The prize will be awarded at 4pm at the fair on Wednesday 12 October.

The Outset/Frieze Art Fair fund  to Benefit the Tate Collection
This unique partnership between Outset, Frieze Art Fair and Tate, based on the generosity of Outset, a charitable foundation focused on supporting new art, enables Tate to buy important work by emerging artists at the fair for the national collection. 83 works by 54 significant international artists have been collected since 2003.

The guest curators for the fund in 2011 will be: Adam Szymczyk (Director of the Kunsthalle Basel) and José Roca (Curator working out of Bogotá and Philadelphia, where he is currently Artistic Director of Philagrafika 2010; and Curator of Mercosul Biennial 2011).

comunicato stampa
Following our hugely successful debut last year, Moniker is back to shake up London’s art fair scene once again highlighting the international scope of street art and beyond. Moniker was responsible for putting East London on the art fair map in 2010, challenging traditional conventions with both gallery exhibits and further signature project spaces ready to whet the appetites of the art crowds.
With over 10,000 people walking through its doors last year, Moniker is set to bombard the scene once again, with a matchless assemblage of artists and galleries who are often overlooked by mainstream art fairs.

Moniker has become recognised by those in tune with international art trends, along with collectors, critics and art lovers alike.
Moniker will take place in October this year at Village Underground, Shoreditch from the 13th–16th of October. In addition, Moniker Projects will continue with its philosophy of commissioning a series of offsite projects including public artworks, educational workshops and film screenings, offering visitors a number of opportunities to get involved and be informed.

Multiplied Contemporary Editions Fair

comunicato stampa

Following the success of the ground-breaking inaugural contemporary editions fair Multiplied in 2010 – the first of its type in the UK – Christie’s is pleased to announce that the salerooms in South Kensington will once again be transformed during Frieze week this year. The fair will be open to the public with free admission from 14-17 October 2011. Wallpaper* is official media partner for Multiplied 2011.

Richard Lloyd, International Head of Prints, Christie’s said, “Since last year’s ground-breaking Multiplied fair we’ve been busy searching high and low, seeking out the hottest galleries and publishers working today, and we can’t wait to reveal the results. For anyone interested in contemporary art, Multiplied 2011 will be a must-see event. Devoted to contemporary art editions – sculpture, photography, printing, and artists’ books – we will be showcasing new work by rising stars and established superstars. Galleries from the USA, France, Germany and Spain will be joining major players from the London art scene, augmented by a program of interactive workshops, lectures and tours run by Christie’s Education.”

Nic McElhatton, Chairman of Christie’s South Kensington comments, “We are delighted to host Multiplied once again this year within the excellent exhibition rooms available at Christie’s South Kensington. Staging such a ground-breaking fair enables us to engage with clients and the art world in a very different way, and it is incredibly exciting to be able to provide an international platform for young and emerging artistic talents.”

Multiplied 2011 will feature a carefully curated selection of forty galleries from around the world, including sixteen exhibitors new to the fair. Newcomers include Collectiva from Berlin, Grey Area Multiples from Paris, Ogami Press from Madrid, and White Columns/Art & Advisory from New York, as well as East London’s legendary Matt’s Gallery. Once again the fair will showcase some of the best home grown talent, and broadening the works on offer, this year’s fair will also provide a much more international experience. The hottest new names will be presented alongside a stellar line up of some of the best known contemporary artists, represented by the likes of Whitechapel Gallery, The Paragon Press, Emin International and White Cube. The second edition of the fair builds upon the success of the Multiplied model launched in 2010.

As part of Multiplied’s objective to give talented young artists an international platform to showcase their work, Chris Dent was invited to design the Multiplied Sitemap for its debut in 2010. This year the tradition continues with young illustrator Jack Featherstone chosen as graphic artist. With recent commissions including a front and back cover illustration for a Wallpaper* supplement on Singapore and music videos for Acid Washed, Jack’s work includes design, illustration and moving image. Jack is represented by HigginsonHurst.

Located in central London, a few minutes walk from Bond Street Underground station. Running over the weekend of 15-16 October with late opening and free entry SLUICE is designed to enable access to all. SLUICE will serve as a punctuation point to the London Art Fair week.

Scope Art Show  CANCELLATA

La multinazionale delle fiere che anni fa promuoveva edizioni in Europa a Madrid e Londra pare concentrarsi ormai solo sulle città americane e Basilea. L’edizione 2011 a Londra è stata cancellata. La penuria di espositori è stata superata a quanto comunicato tramite newsletter (sul sito non ci sono riferimenti) dagli eventi che questa estate hanno visto mettere a ferro e fuoco alcuni quartieri di Londra. La sicurezza davanti ad un calo inarrestabile di espositori che ponderano meglio come investire il proprio denaro, a fronte di un investimento spesso non corrisponde nè ritorno di immagine nè ritorno di vendite per la galleria espositrice.



Heading Signs of Poor Economic Conditions and Civil Unrest, SCOPE London Postpones Show Until 2012 Olympics

SCOPE London, scheduled to take place this coming October announced Wednesday that the fair would be postponed until 2012. In response to the recent riots that swept neighborhoods of Great Britain, SCOPE and their advisory body of galleries, community heads, and global collectors, have decided this year would not be the time to re-launch the fair. SCOPE Show Director, Mollie White explains, “the current climate of social unrest, and poor economic conditions, did not create for the sure environment to re-launch this year’s edition of the fair. It is essential to SCOPE that its exhibitors are given a confident and rich platform, and we therefore look forward to hosting the fair next year, which we feel will be an especially dynamic time, given the international presence of the Olympics and respective communities.

SCOPE now looks to celebrate its ninth year in Miami, November 30- December 4, where it will host 85 international exhibitors presenting solo, and thematic group shows, alongside museum quality programming, including the debut of innovative performance, film, curatorial projects and site-specific installation. As the destination for cutting-edge contemporary art, SCOPE continues to develop its lead role as creative R+D for a wider audience of taste makes. Come celebrate SCOPE Miami!

Founded in 2002, SCOPE has grown extensively in both volume and stature. Alexis Hubshman, President of SCOPE explains ” We’ve evolved from an industry niche to an influential global contributor, with ongoing events, educational programs and the SCOPE Foundation 501 (c)3. SCOPE is the dynamic presence in the expanding global art market.” With art fairs in New York, Basel, London and Miami, SCOPE Art Show has garnered critical acclaim, with sales over $150 million and attendance of over 400,000 visitors.
