London to host annual art sale

A major art sale is being held in London’s Regent Park from October 11th.

The annual Frieze London lasts four days and brings together some of the world’s top galleries to showcase the best in modern art to the buying public.

First held in 2008, the event has developed into a must for art fans staying in central London hotels and around 60,000 people are expected to attend the fair, with many buying unique pieces to add to their collections.

A major change to this year’s event is the introduction of Frieze Masters, which is a fair for historical art and will take place at the same time in the Gloucester Green area of Regent’s Park.

Around 90 galleries are expected to take part in the new event that highlights the continued interest in art from all periods.

Victoria Siddall, director of Frieze Masters, said: “I am very pleased that so many leading galleries have committed to Frieze Masters in its inaugural year. The exhibitor list reflects the unique nature of the fair – they are all the best at what they do – and represents a diverse range of art throughout history and from all over the world.

“The very positive response to Frieze Masters from galleries demonstrates the desire for a great international modern and historical art fair in London.”

Tickets are limited and they must be purchased in advance. Admission to both Frieze London and Frieze Masters costs £35 for adults and £25 for concessions.

There are also plans for London to host another art fair in spring next year. For the first time Art13 London will take place at Olympia Grand Hall from March 1st to March 3rd and is set to include a wide range of pieces from galleries from around the world.
