London prepares for Frieze Art Fair

London is without a doubt one of the top cities in the world for art, with so many galleries and one-off installations to be found throughout the capital, and October is perhaps the best month of all to visit.

That’s because the Frieze Art Fair will be taking place later this month, providing locals and tourists alike with the chance to see some of the very best creations by a huge number of the world’s top artists.

From October 17th to 20th a huge number of pieces will be on show at the fair in Regent’s Park, and anyone interested in attending is advised to book their tickets sooner rather than later as this is one of the most popular events on the London cultural calendar and demand is expected to be sky high.

Among the projects to be featured at this year’s Frieze Art Fair will be a special piece by Emdash Award winner Pilvi Takala, a Finnish artist who lives in Istanbul.

Takala will be handing the reigns of control over her piece to a specially selected committee of children, all around the age of 12, who will participate in a series of workshops and will decide on the final form of the project.

Other exciting inclusions in this year’s fair include a piece by Australian artist Gerry Bibby, who will be constructing a work of art out of oyster shells after being inspired by finding shards of oyster shells in the soil of Regent’s Park.

Works covering the full spectrum of artistic genres will be on show at the event, which will also include a Frieze Sculpture Park.

Camden London

The fair will be located towards the southern end of Regent’s Park, and can be reached from both Baker Street and Regent’s Park tube stations.

Alternatively, alight at Camden Town and take a stroll through the park to the fair itself.
