Frieze Projects, Emdash Award, Frieze Music and Frieze Film form the annual programme by Frieze Foundation at Frieze London, this year curated by Nicola Lees.

This year, Frieze Projects will be brought together in a single dedicated space within the fair. Andreas Angelidakis has designed a mutable architectural environment constructed from modular elements. Throughout the duration of the fair this ‘set’ will host projects by Gerry Bibby, Rivane NeuenschwanderKen Okiishi, Lili Reynaud-Dewar and Josef Strau, while being reconfigured daily to focus on to one of the artists’ commissions. Unfolding over time, the on/off-stage dynamic of the Projects will create a series of alternating moments: distraction and concentration, intimacy and exposure, accumulation and deconstruction.

Frieze Projects 2013 also includes a Project by Emdash Award-recipient Pilvi Takala, who has chosen to give the opportunity to devise and realise the Emdash Award to a committee of children, who in a series of workshops will decide on the final form and scope of the project. Another integral component of Frieze Projects 2013 is a site-specific commission for the Family Space: Angelo Plessas has conceived The Temple of Play as a free, creative playground that provides activities for young people as well as adults and will be accessible for the duration of the fair. Commissioned by Frieze Foundation, Frieze Projects is supported by the Emdash Foundation.

This year’s Frieze Music programme presents a performance by innovative composer, singer and performer Meredith Monk, co-commissioned by Frieze Foundation and Liverpool Biennial. Meredith Monk with Katie Geissinger in Concert will take place on 15 October 2013. Monk’s performance for Frieze London 2013 will be her first London performance in nine years and is accompanied by a keynote lecture as part of Frieze Talks, and a workshop in Liverpool as part of the 2014 Liverpool Biennial.

Frieze Film 2013 includes five artists’ films co-commissioned with EMPAC / Experimental Media and Performing Arts Centre at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. Petra Cortright, Peter Gidal, Patricia Lennox-Boyd, Oraib Toukan and Erika Vogt will each create a new short moving-image work, that plays with the idea of broadcast as medium. The films will be shown at Frieze London and broadcast on Channel 4 television as part of Random Acts. The films will also be shown at EMPAC, Troy in 2014.

Additionally this year, the process and conditions of commissioning artist films will be explored in ‘New Partnerships Between Art & Film,’ a think tank and a panel discussion developed in collaboration with CPH:DOX, the CineMart of the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) and LUX, programmed by ART:FILM.
