Every year, Frieze hosts two important art fairs side by side in Regent’s Park, London; Frieze London which showcases the best of contemporary art, and Frieze Masters which specialises in art from the past.

This year the events take place from October 3rd-6th, and feature forward-thinking works from more than 150 of the world’s top contemporary galleries, together with showcases of art history throughout exhibitions by more than 100 leading international galleries, including ancient works, Old Masters’ paintings and displays from the modern era.
