12 Oct - 16 Oct, 2022
Frieze Masters will take place from October 12 to 16 in The Regent's Park, bringing together galleries from 42 countries to celebrate the city's creative spirit. The fair will bring together six millennia of art – from rare antiquities to Old Master paintings to luminaries of the 20th century – creating a destination where visitors can discover art history anew.
The much-celebrated Spotlight section of Frieze Masters will this year be curated by Camille Morineau (co-founder and Research Director of AWARE - Archives of Women Artists, Research, and Exhibitions) and the AWARE team and be dedicated to women artists. Returning from 2021, Frieze Masters will also feature the section Stand Out, curated by Luke Syson (Director of Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge), which will this year focus on the idea of Global Exchange and bring together art objects from across the ages that are great works of design, of sculptural and conceptual brilliance. Stand Out looks beyond hierarchical distinctions between works of art in different media and, in doing so reconsiders art objects often termed 'decorative' or 'functional.'
