With more than 160 exhibiting galleries, the 19th annual event attracted visitors both domestic as well as international. The fair ran during October 12th-16th, proving yet again of London being one of the Europe’s go-to destination when looking for fine contemporary art.
”There’s a lot of money around for new collections. Decorative painting is a good entry point.Candace Worth, New York-based art adviserfor New York Times
”When Frieze London opened, it was even more packed which led many people to complain and wonder how it could be that there were so many people attending the VIP opening. I told some that next time they should go to the VVIP or the VVVIP opening, which made them look very concerned that they had missed something.Simon de Purywrote for Artnet News
