Frieze London and Frieze Masters
Frieze London celebrates the 20th anniversary of its founding in 2003 by inviting eight leading artists from Tracey Emin to Alvaro Barrington to select other artists for solo stands during this year's fair, while its sister fair Frieze Masters will present a special section dedicated to female artists.
A centrepiece of Frieze London’s 20th-anniversary celebrations, the programme explores the UK’s cultural landscape through a series of collaborations with key arts organizations and public institutions.
Modern Women, curated by Camille Morineau, the co-founder of the non-profit AWARE (Archive of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions), sees ten galleries devote their stands to solo presentations of women.
These include the influential Brazilian Modernist Tarsila do Amaral at Almeida & Dale Art Gallery, and the French sculptor Germaine Richier at Perrotin. Women will also be in the limelight of another new feature launching this year at Masters, focusing on the artist's studio.
The section is curated by Sheena Wagstaff, the former chair of Modern and contemporary art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and will feature exclusively female artists, with Maggi Hambling and Mona Hatoum among them.
