One of two major art fairs running this month, Frieze London, along with its sister fair Frieze Masters, had its VIP opening today in Regent’s Park. The affair was much more crowded than most fairs have been since events of this scale resumed after a pause caused by the pandemic.
Indeed, much of the talk around the fair was about how long the line to get in was, with some saying they waited at least a half hour. The opening hours were bustling with people, likely because of how many visitors were granted the traditionally exclusive 11 a.m. entry time, and dealers reported strong sales during the fair.
The work on view this year is strong, and discoveries of artists both young and overlooked abound. Below a look at the best on offer at the fair, which runs until Sunday.
