Frieze Week 2020, London

This October sees the return of Frieze Sculpture in Regent’s Park and a hybrid programme of online and offline activity, reaching audiences worldwide via Frieze Viewing Room as well as celebrating the vibrant art scene in London.

The Frieze Week programme will launch Monday 5 October, taking place both across London and online and is set to feature leading artists, collectors and curators across a wide range of exhibitions, talks and events.

Over 200 of the world’s leading galleries will participate online in the second edition of Frieze Viewing Room, bringing together work ranging from the ancient era to today’s emerging and established artists. Frieze Week program includes Frieze Sculpture, LIVE, Frieze Talks and major museum shows across the city. As a response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this new hybrid model combines the global online reach of Frieze Viewing Room with a commitment to the creative spirit of London.

Frieze Viewing Room

With over 200 participating galleries from Frieze London and Frieze Masters, the second edition of Frieze Viewing Room will benefit from major new developments to the user experience.

The app and web-based platform will be live from 9-16 October, with invitation-only preview days on 7-8 October, and present an extraordinary cross- section of artwork originally intended to be shown at Frieze London and Frieze Masters 2020.

The digital venture will showcase special gallery sections in line with the fairs’ physical iterations, including:
• Focus, the Frieze London section, supporting the participation of galleries aged 15 years or younger and providing a platform for young talent.
• Possessions, Frieze London’s new themed section curated by Zoé Whitley (Director, Chisenhale Gallery, London) and centred around the power of spirituality in the art of our time
• Spotlight, the critically acclaimed section of Frieze Masters’ dedicated to solo presentations by pioneering artists of the 20th century, curated by Laura Hoptman.

Frieze Sculpture

Frieze Sculpture will return to The Regent’s Park from 5 – 18 October this year, featuring 12 ambitious works by leading international artists throughout the park’s English Gardens. Frieze Sculpture will be presented as part of an expanded Frieze Week programme of activity throughout London and coincides with Frieze London and Frieze Masters, which this year introduce a new hybrid format of online and offline activity.
