Artist-to-Artist initiative

Marking its 20th anniversary, Frieze London has announced a new initiative, Artist-to-Artist, which invites world-renowned figures to nominate artists for solo exhibitions at Frieze London, by assigning them the role of advocates for new voices at the fair.

This year Artist-to-Artist will feature Deborah Anzinger proposed by Simone Leigh (Nicola Vassell); Mark Barker proposed by Wolfgang Tillmans (Shahin Zarinbal); Ayoung Kim proposed by Haegue Yang (Gallery Hyundai); Fabian Knecht proposed by Olafur Eliasson (alexander levy); Simonette Quamina proposed by Alvaro Barrington (Praxis); Vanessa Raw proposed by Tracey Emin (Carl Freedman Gallery); Wantanee Siripattananuntakul proposed by Rirkrit Tiravanija (Gallery Ver); and Carlos Villa proposed by Anthea Hamilton (Silverlens).

Artist-to-Artist spans painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation, works on paper and print, with themes of memory, labour, environment, diaspora and time emerging across the section.
