There’s so much going on this weekend. Here’s our pick of the art action.
Look out for: PPOW Booth 19 presenting an exploration of female identity, there’s work by Carrie Mae Weems Portia Munson (Pink Project), Erin M Riley, Aurel Schmidt, and Martin Wong. Also work by Betty Tomkins who has created a new piece specifically for Frieze London which uses British words and phrases in her Women Words series, her text based paintings which explore the language ascribed to females.
If you can’t afford the steep prices for the art fair, you can head over to the free Frieze Sculpture Park in Regents Park. Curated by Clare Lilley, Director of the acclaimed Yorkshire Sculpture Park, you’ll find artworks until January 2017. Not a lot of them women though, four out of nineteen sculptures by women artists.
Now in partnership with Saatchi, The Other Art Fair is six years in and celebrating with a well thought out and put together show. Here artists sell their art direct to the public. We like Bridget Davies, Alexandria Coe and Kristjana S Williams. from both artists and galleries. Exhibiting artists are picked by panel and you’ll find works by Tracey Emin here also.
A new international art fair with work by established and emerging artists from a multitude of backgrounds and spanning different generations. An exhilarating fair featuring an extensive and varied international rosta of galleries and artists.
Original paintings by Paula Rego are juxtaposed with site specific sculptures, video work and curator projects.
We liked Soheila Sokhanvari’s paintings in crude oil and gold on paper, and work from the Atelieale collective.
If you can go to one thing this weekend, go to this.
