Frieze Art Fair
14-17 October 2010

Regent’s Park, London

The eighth edition of the leading international contemporary art fair, sponsored by Deutsche Bank, takes place in London’s Regent’s Park from 14-17 October 2010.

World’s top contemporary art galleries
173 of the world’s most exciting contemporary art galleries, representing 29 countries, will present new work by over 1,000 of the world’s most innovative artists at Frieze Art Fair.

Galleries new to the main section of the fair include: Bortolami, New York (USA); Pilar Corrias, London (UK); Elizabeth Dee, New York (USA); Xavier Hufkens, Brussels (Belgium); Michael Lett, Auckland (New Zealand).

The successful introduction of Frame, dedicated to galleries under six years old showing solo artist presentations, sees its return in 2010. Frame is supported by Cos. The Frame galleries’ selection has been advised by curators Cecilia Alemani and Daniel Baumann.

A listing of all the galleries with work that they are showing at the fair will be online in a new ‘Art Finder’ section of the Frieze Art Fair website.

iPhone and iPad app
This year visitors to Frieze Art Fair will be able to navigate the fair with an iPhone and iPad app. The company’s first mobile app will be an invaluable tool for collectors, curators and general visitors to the 2010 Frieze Art Fair, as well as those who are unable to visit the fair in person. Both apps are sponsored by Deutsche Bank.

Frieze Projects
Frieze Projects 2010 is curated by Sarah McCrory and includes nine specially commissioned projects as well as the Cartier Award and collaborations with our 2010 partner institutions Signal (Sweden) and Vector Association (Romania).

The artists commissioned to create these site-specific works for Frieze Art Fair are: Ei Arakawa & Karl Holmqvist, Spartacus Chetwynd, Matthew Darbyshire, Shannon Ebner & Dexter Sinister, Gabriel Kuri, Shahryar Nashat, Nick Relph, Annika Ström and Jeffrey Vallance.

The Cartier Award 2010 recipient is Simon Fujiwara. Fujiwara will present Frozen; an installation based on the fictive premise that an ancient lost city has been discovered beneath the site of the fair.

Frieze Film
Frieze Film is a programme of artists’ films that this year includes four commissioned films as well as a curated film programme that will be shown in a specially constructed cinema outside the entrance to the fair that will be free to the public.

The artists commissioned to make new work are: Jess Flood-Paddock, Linder, Elizabeth Price and Stephen Sutcliffe. The commissioned films by British artists will be shown alongside specially selected programmes as well as existing films by this year’s Frieze Projects artists. The commissioned films will also be broadcast on Channel 4 and from Monday 11 October can be viewed online at

Frieze Talks
Ramin Bahrani, Susan Hiller, Amar Kanwar, Bridget Riley
and Wolfgang Tillmans are all part of the international line-up of highly respected artists, filmmakers, curators and cultural commentators taking part in Frieze Talks 2010.

Frieze Talks is a daily programme of keynote lectures, panel debates and discussions that is programmed by the editors of frieze magazine and takes place at Frieze Art Fair.

Frieze Music
Frieze Music 2010 will present two specially curated nights of very different sounds, one of disco and a second of exquisite song from a singular voice.

Friday 15 October will see Hercules and Love Affair perform at Debut, with support from Telepathe and Berlin-based duo Hype Williams.

On Saturday 16 October Baby Dee—a classically trained harpist and pianist—will be performing with The Elysian Quartet. Also performing is James Blackshaw.

Frieze Education
Continuing its relationship with ReachOutRCA at the Royal College of Art, Frieze Education is presented in association with Deutsche Bank in the Deutsche Bank Education Space.

Aiming to establish a strong legacy for the children and young people that take part, ReachOutRCA provides a highly ambitious, imaginative and critical exploration of Frieze Art Fair. Encompassing workshops for schools, a weekend public programme, an activity guide for young visitors to Frieze Art Fair and an online resource, ‘The Age of Discovery’ offers an accessible yet innovative experience of contemporary art, emboldening participants’ own role in learning and creativity.

Sculpture Park
The Sculpture Park offers a rare opportunity to see a significant group of international work that is addressed on a public scale. This year’s Sculpture Park presents work by a broad selection of artists, including some of the most acclaimed international sculptors working today. These include new works by Hans Peter Feldman and Ceal Floyer, as well as pieces by Jeppe Hein, Marie Lund, Tomas Saraceno and Franz West.

The Stand Prize
The second year of the Frieze Art Fair Stand Prize, sponsored by Champagne Pommery, will be judged by Jerry Saltz (Art Critic, New York Magazine), Beatrix Ruf (Director/Curator, Kunsthalle, Zurich) and Stuart Comer (Curator of Film, Tate Modern). A prize of 10,000 pounds will go to the most innovative gallery stand at the fair. The prize will be awarded at the fair on Wednesday 13 October.

The Outset Fund
2010 marks the eighth anniversary of the successful collaboration between Outset, Frieze Art Fair and Tate. This unique partnership, based on the generosity of Outset, a charitable foundation focused on supporting new art, enables Tate to buy important work by emerging artists at the fair for the national collection. Seventy-eight works by 51 significant international artists have been collected since 2003.
