Frieze Projects

Frieze Projects is the curatorial programme presented annually at Frieze Art Fair, and comprises Frieze Commissions, Frieze Talks and The Cartier Award.

Frieze Commissions

Frieze Commissions features site-specific works realized in and around the fair and a daily film programme in The Artists Cinema.

Four new projects by Lara Almarcegui, Pablo Bronstein, Loris Gréaud and Mike Nelson take as their subject the architectural dynamic of the fair and explore ideas of visibility and display in this spectacular context.
Mika Rottenberg, first recipient of The Cartier Award, presents a new video installation.

In collaboration with LUX, Manon de Boer, Miguel Calderón, Bonnie Camplin, Phil Collins, Apichatpong Weerasethakul have been commissioned to make short 35 mm films that will premiere at the fair. Subsequently these films will tour to a selection of UK cinemas, through the Independent Cinema Office, where they will be shown before main features.

A festival of artists film and video will take place in The Artists Cinema, including daily screenings of the commissions alongside an invited programme of film and video and expanded cinema performances. The invited programmes are selected by Stuart Comer, Sharon Lockhart, The Otolith Group, Cristina Ricupero, Christine Tohme and Maria-Christina Villaseñor. Daily events include performances by k2 Aufbau Organisation and Lindsay Ljungkull, special projects with Yoko Ono and Sharon Hayes and expanded cinema, curated by Mark Webber by Gill Eatherley and Malcolm Le Grice. The Artists Cinema is produced in collaboration with LUX and is co-ordinated by Ian White.
