Curated by Neville Wakefield, Frieze Projects will feature seven site-specific commissions by artists Mike Bouchet, Kim Coleman & Jenny Hogarth, Ruth Ewan, Ryan Gander, Per-Oskar Leu, Monika Sosnowska and Stephanie Syjuco.

Above all, the commissions will present projects that regard the particular circumstances of Frieze Art Fair as an opportunity to create work that could not exist elsewhere.

Commenting on this year’s projects, Neville Wakefield stated: “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, this year’s projects create aesthetic opportunity out of the uncertainty that has become the hallmark of our troubled times.”

The Cartier Award 2009 recipient is Jordan Wolfson. He will present Untitling
Everything
, a nomadic seminar on the subject of String Theory, which will take the form of a series of personal walking tours of Frieze Art Fair.

Frieze Projects also includes collaborations with this year’s partner institutions Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius (Lithuania) and MUSAC, the Museo de Arte Contempo, Lisbon (Portugal).
