The most anticipated week in London’s cultural calendar is fast approaching, and Eyeline Publishing is delighted to be among this year's media partners.
Opening 3 to 6 October 2019, Frieze London and Frieze Masters return for their annual celebration of international art in London bringing together more than 290 leading galleries from around the world, new curated sections and fun programming. Tickets and information at frieze.com.
This year’s curated program features a new themed section entitled Woven, bringing together solo presentations by eight international artists of different generations who employ textiles, weaving and tapestry in their contemporary practice. Curated by Cosmin Costinas (Executive Director/Curator, Para Site, Hong Kong), this gallery-led section features artists from Brazil, the Philippines, China, India, the USA and Madagascar.
Highlights from the program include solo shows by Kara Walker (USA), Do Ho Suh (Singapore), Neïl Beloufa (France/Algeria), Ryan Gander (Japan), Donna Huanca (Germany) and others; and curated gallery presentations exploring social and political issues from gender, race, displacement and consumerism to technology, religion and architecture through the work of artists such as Takis (Greece), William Kentridge (South Africa), Jac Leirner (Brazil) and Cui Jie (China).
Marking the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, Frieze Talks 2019 presents a program of discussions inspired by the school's pioneering approach to interdisciplinarity, and its questioning of art's relationship with a wider social world.
This year’s LIVE program, curated by Diana Campbell Betancourt, aims to inspire a physical form of thinking where solutions can be found and felt within the body, with performances and interactive installations by Carlos Amorales (Mexico), Cecilia Bengolea (Argentina), Shezad Dawood (UK), William Forsythe (USA/Germany), Yasmin Jahan Nupur (Bangladesh), and others.
