The world’s leading platform for modern art returns for its extensive 16th edition 

 
Returning to the city's Regent's Park this October, Frieze London will showcase the very best of international contemporary art, with a fully comprehensive collection of 160 outstanding participating galleries who will each present their most forward- thinking, innovative artists and thrilling, imaginative presentations. Visitors will be able to view and buy art from over 1,000 of today’s leading and emerging artists, as well as experience the fair’s critically acclaimed curated sections and talks.
 
This year’s programme will display a host of solo pieces as well as respond to a range of themed issues – from the lack of visibility of women in the art marketplace, to the hidden systems of communication and control, while a new themed section, Social Work, will celebrate female artists who pushed against the status quo and challenged the male-dominated art market of the 1980s. Each of these pioneering female artists seeks to address identity, labor and visibility within their work, and the finalists will be painstakingly selected by a panel of 11 leading women art historians and critics.
 
“Frieze London programming evolves this year, shaped by new curators and urgent political realities. 100 years since women gained the vote in the UK, Frieze London will use its international platform to respond to the fact that women artists are still under-represented in the art world and especially the market. It’s been an honour to collaborate with 11 of the country’s leading minds on the subject, to shape this year’s themed section,” says Frieze Artistic Director, Jo Stella-Sawicka.
