Frieze

Frieze is London's primary Contemporary art fair which takes place annually in October in Regents Park. It was launched in 2003 by the publishers of Frieze Magazine, Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover.

The fair launched a New York edition in 2012 as well as a 'sister' fair for historical art entitled Frieze Masters in the same year.
