Curated by independent curator and writer Fatoş Üstek for the first time, Frieze Sculpture returns from 20 September–29 October, featuring 21 leading international artists whose works will be situated throughout The Regent’s Park’s historic English Gardens.
Frieze Sculpture 2023 features artists who are exhibiting major works in the public realm for the first time, alongside young practitioners who are pushing boundaries.
The participating artists are: Ghada Amer, Leilah Babirye, Sanford Biggers, Jyll Bradley, Catharine Czudej, Ayşe Erkmen, Yuichi Hirako, Suhasini Kejriwal, Tony Matelli, Louise Nevelson, Temitayo Ogunbiyi, Zak Ové, Li Li Ren, Hans Rosenström, Tomas Saraceno, Yinka Shonibare, Josh Smith, Amy Stephens, Holly Stevenson and Hank Willis Thomas.
“The English Gardens are charged with artworks that pronounce the contrast between the monumental and the ephemeral, whilst engaging with aspects of other artistic mediums,” said Üstek .
Spanning conceptual, experiential, humorous and imaginative approaches, the artworks are linked by ideas of transformation, political empowerment, contemporary rituals and social imaginary.
Alongside the exhibition, a complementary public programme of performances and talks will enrich the art experiences that are generated in The Regent’s Park.
