Frieze London

Regent’s Park

4–7 October 2018



The annual non-profit programme includes Frieze Projects and the Frieze Artist Award, presenting new, site-specific works by contemporary artists; Frieze Film, new film commissions premiered at the fair; Frieze Music, the fair's off-site music programme; and Frieze Talks, a dynamic series of panel discussions, conversations and keynote lectures. In the curated gallery sections, Focus features presentations by galleries aged 12 years or younger; Live is a space for performance and participation works; and new for 2017, Sex Work: Feminist Art & Radical Politics showcases female artists working at the extreme edges of feminist practice since the 1970s.
