Frieze Sculpture returns to Regent’s Park this October, running in conjunction with Frieze London and Frieze Masters – displaying the best of contemporary art, films and talks. Frieze Sculpture, part of an expanded Frieze Week throughout the park’s gardens, will introduce both online and offline activity to comply with social distancing guidelines this year. The two-week art programme features the works of 12 prominent international artists including Richard Long, Sarah Lucas and Rebecca Warren.
Despite the challenges faced by artists this year, the exhibition focuses on a range of themes including ecology, civil rights and the role of the artist as a distributor. We’ll be seeing impressive sculptural pieces – including Lubaina Himid’s acrylic paint on five reclaimed wooden doors from traditional Georgian townhouses, created for the 2019 High Line in New York and showcasing for the first time in the UK.
Elsewhere, artists have focused on equality and the importance of art for change by Lubaina Himid and Kalliopi Lemos, while Patrick Goddard, Richard Long and Arne Quinze emphasize the significance of our relationship with the natural world – including Richard’s granite and marble stone.
Adapted for covid-19 rules and regulations, the exhibit will take place in an open-air setting, allowing visitors the opportunity to enjoy and observe the major works. Frieze Sculpture is also accompanied by a free audio tour by curator Claire Lilley and a virtual presence Viewing Room, ensuring guests from across the globe can also join the exhibition.
Frieze was first founded in 1991 with the launch of frieze magazine by Matthew Slotover and Amanda Sharp. In 2003, they launched Frieze London art fair, followed by Frieze New York in 2012. Last year they launched Frieze Los Angeles at Paramount Pictures Studios.
