Highlights for Frieze London and Frieze Masters 2022 London


Frieze revealed highlights for both Frieze London and Frieze Masters 2022. Together, the two events bring together galleries from 42 countries, presenting art across the ages, from ancient and old masters to modern classics and the contemporary. Featuring some of the most exciting artists working today, as well as expertly curated selections from art history, both Frieze London and Frieze Masters will celebrate the depth and breadth of London’s creative community. Taking place from 12-16 October in London’s The Regent’s Park, Frieze London and Frieze Masters are supported by global lead partner Deutsche Bank, continuing a shared commitment to artistic excellence. Eva Langret, Director of Frieze London, said, ‘So many of our participating galleries are planning ambitious solo presentations and curated shows that really promise to stimulate delight and challenge – and I am so excited to see such a diversity of talent all under one roof. Frieze Week also promises to be a major draw, with truly unmissable exhibitions across the city in both galleries and museums. This year’s fairs really reflect our commitment to celebrating the creative life of London.’ Nathan Clements-Gillespie, Director of Frieze Masters, added, ‘Following the stellar launch of Frieze Masters in Seoul, we can’t wait to be back in London to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Once again, we will see Frieze Masters’ signature formula of showcasing the very best art throughout the ages. In addition, I am so looking forward to the discoveries that the fair provides each year – particularly in our Spotlight section, curated in 2022 by Camille Morineau and the AWARE team. Beyond the fair, Frieze Masters’ presence will be felt throughout the city – with our talks program taking place in galleries and museums throughout London for everyone to enjoy.’ Frieze London – World-leading Galleries Frieze London will present the world’s leading galleries, showcasing ambitious solo, group, and themed shows that offer an opportunity to discover up-and-coming talent and engage with work by some of today’s most celebrated names.
