The 11th edition of Frieze London, the leading international contemporary art fair, takes place in London’s Regent’s Park from 17–20 October 2013. Frieze London brings 152 of the world’s leading contemporary galleries to the UK this October. The fair is housed in a bespoke temporary structure designed by architects Carmody Groarke to provide the best conditions for showing and viewing art. Additions to last year’s participants include: Blum & Poe (Los Angeles); Marian Goodman (New York); Galerie Max Hetzler (Berlin); Goodman Gallery (Johannesburg); Maccarone (New York); Overduin and Kite (Los Angeles); and Rodeo (Istanbul). The eleventh edition features two specialist sections: Focus, dedicated to galleries up to ten years old presenting projects specifically conceived for Frieze, and Frame, for young galleries who will show solo artist presentations. The selection of the Frame galleries was advised by curators Rodrigo Moura and Tim Saltarelli. For the second time Frieze will present Frieze Masters, to coincide with Frieze London, a new fair with a contemporary perspective on historical art. Together the crossover between the two fairs build a broad international art audience.
