It’s Frieze Week, and whereas the Frieze London and Frieze Masters festivals are conspicuously absent this 12 months, that doesn’t imply there is no such thing as a motive to go to Regent’s Park.
Artwork-hungry audiences can take an outside, socially distanced stroll within the lush park that sometimes hosts the festivals to see the 12 bold sculptures that comprise Frieze’s open-air sculpture show. Highlights embody new commissions from Patrick Goddard, Kalliopi Lemos, and Arne Quinze, in addition to Lubaina Himid’s 5 reclaimed doorways, which she initially created in 2019 for the Excessive Line in New York.
“Amid all of the challenges,” says Clare Lilley, Frieze Sculpture curator and director of program at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, “it’s uplifting to see artists and galleries reply so enthusiastically to Frieze Sculpture. Not often have our public areas been fairly so essential for our psychological and bodily well-being, and this exhibition shines a light-weight on sculpture within the open air, creating a spot of inspiration and pleasure the place folks can come collectively safely for dialog and alternate.”
The works on view this 12 months discover very important and topical themes from civil rights to ecology to the position of the artist in altering the established order. For these not in a position to be on the bottom in London, you may see them right here.
Frieze Sculpture is on view October 5 by 18 within the English Gardens at Regent’s Park.
