Frieze Art Fair 2009
15 – 18 October 2009

Regent’s Park, London


Frieze Art Fair 2009
The seventh edition of the leading international contemporary art fair, sponsored by Deutsche Bank, takes place in London’s Regent’s Park from 15–18 October 2009. 164 of the world’s most exciting contemporary art galleries, representing 30 countries, will present new work by over 1,000 of the world’s most innovative artists at Frieze Art Fair.

A fresh and exciting addition for 2009 will be the first presentation of Frame, a new section within the fair dedicated to solo artist presentations. Frame will show 29 young galleries from around the world that have been in existence for less than six years.

Frieze Projects
This year’s seven projects create aesthetic opportunity out of the uncertainty that has become the hallmark of our troubled times; whether taking the form of grand architectural obstruction or finding new ways of protesting, authenticating or motivating our relationship to the objects we make, look at and buy. The Frieze Projects’ artists for 2009 are: Mike Bouchet, Kim Coleman and Jenny Hogarth, Ruth Ewan, Ryan Gander, Per-Oskar Leu, Monika Sosnowska, and Stephanie Syjuco.

This year’s European Partners are the Contemporary Arts Centre, Vilnius, and curators Filipa Oliveira and Miguel Amado for Arte Contempo, Lisbon. Resonance 104.4fm will again be broadcasting live from the fair. Frieze Projects are curated by Neville Wakefield and presented in association with Cartier.

Frieze Talks
John Baldessari, Roger Hiorns, Hella Jongerius, Sylvère Lotringer
and Agnès Varda, all form part of the international line-up of highly respected artists, filmmakers, designers, curators and cultural commentators making up Frieze Talks 2009. Programmed by the editors of frieze magazine, readers of frieze have the opportunity to ask John Baldessari a question. To submit your question email Jennifer@frieze.com (please note, we cannot guarantee all questions will be used).

The Cartier Award
American artist Jordan Wolfson is the fourth winner of The Cartier Award for 2009. Wolfson is an American conceptual artist, based in Berlin and New York and will present an intervention based on String Theory entitled Your Napoleon.

Frieze Film
Frieze Film 2009 presents a newly commissioned project in four parts by Danish artist activists Superflex, The Financial Crisis (Session I–IV). Taking as their inspiration a passage in Lars Von Trier’s film Epidemic, Superflex’s new films will approach the economic crisis as a psychosis to be treated therapeutically.

Frieze Film will be shown in Channel 4′s innovative ’3 Minute Wonder’ slot during the week of Frieze Art Fair from Monday 12 October to Thursday 15 October, at 7.55pm and onsite and Frieze Art Fair.

Frieze Music
Frieze Music 2009 will be a performance conceived and choreographed by Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Creed. Co-commissioned by Frieze Music and Sadler’s Wells, Work No. 1020 will be performed at Sadler’s Wells during Frieze Art Fair 2009 from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 October.

Sculpture Park
This year’s Sculpture Park, sponsored by Heath Lambert, presents work by a broad spectrum of artists, including Louise Bourgeois, Paul McCarthy and Eva Rothschild.

Frieze Education
Continuing its relationship with ReachOutRCA at the Royal College of Art, Frieze Education provides a highly ambitious, imaginative and critical exploration of Frieze Art Fair and will be held held in the Deutsche Bank Education Space. Working with students from four inner-London schools, the Frieze Education Programme, sponsored by Deutsche Bank, concentrates on sculpture and Frieze Projects at Frieze Art Fair.

The Stand Prize
The first Frieze Art Fair Stand Prize, sponsored by Champagne Pommery, will be judged by Peter Eleey (Curator at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis), Susanne Gaensheimer Director of the Museum fur Modern Kunst, Frankfurt/Main) and Margot Heller (Director of the South London Gallery, London). A prize of 10,000 GBP will go to the most innovative gallery stand at the fair. The prize will be awarded on the afternoon of Wednesday 14 October.

The Outset Fund
2009 marks the seventh 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. With a fund of more than 775,000 GBP, 72 works by 45 significant international artists have been collected since 2003.
