About Frieze

about Frieze

Founded in 1991 by Amanda Sharp, Matthew Slotover, and Tom Gidley, Frieze has its roots in frieze magazine, a leading publication of contemporary art and culture. The magazine’s success laid the groundwork for Frieze London, established in 2003. 

This influential fair takes place every October in The Regent’s Park, London, making it one of the world’s most prominent cultural art attractions. This year it celebrates its 20th anniversary making this one extra special.

Over time, Frieze expanded its global reach, launching Frieze New York in 2012, Frieze Masters in London, Frieze Los Angeles in 2019, and Frieze Seoul in 2022. Moreover, No.9 Cork Street was opened in London in 2021, becoming a permanent space for visiting international galleries.

How to Plan Your Day for Frieze London 2023

Attending Frieze London is an exhilarating experience, but without proper planning, you may miss out on some of its many offerings. Here’s a guide to help you maximise your time:

Review the Program

Before your visit, take some time to study the program, noting the exhibitions, artists, or galleries that most interest you. Check the official website or app for any scheduled talks, guided tours, or special events that align with your interests.

Create a Schedule

Based on your preferences, create a flexible schedule. Consider prioritising must-see exhibits and allocating time for exploration. If you’re attending both Frieze London and Frieze Masters, be mindful of the walking distance between the two and plan accordingly.

Arrive Early

Lines can be long, and popular exhibits may be crowded. Arriving early ensures you can navigate the venue with ease and have time to explore at a relaxed pace.

Dress Comfortably

Frieze London offers a vast space to explore, so wear comfortable shoes and clothing suitable for walking. The event’s smart-casual vibe allows for both style and comfort.

Stay Hydrated and Nourished

Download the Frieze App

The official app may provide real-time updates, maps, and additional insights into the exhibits. This can be a valuable tool to navigate the fair and stay informed.

Network and Socialise

If you’re in the art industry or simply an art enthusiast, take time to engage with other attendees, artists, and gallery representatives. You never know what insights or connections you might make!

Leave Room for Exploration

While having a plan is essential, allow for some spontaneity. Explore areas that aren’t on your must-see list, and take in the unexpected treasures of the fair.
