Frieze 2016 recommendations, Oct 6 – 9

, 3 October 2016

London’s Frieze Art Fair 2016 is opening October 6 and running to October 9. The event will be host to a range of curated exhibitions, talks, performances and events, with a keynote presentation by Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.

See below for our recommendations of the main event, and here for offsite and fringe events:


A daily series of lunchtime discussions will focus this years’ attention on ‘Borderlands’, inviting artists such as Hannah Black, Fatima Al Qadiri, Alexandra BachzetsisJosh Kline, Jill Magid and Lauren Cornell among others to discuss “the geographic, social and psychological borders that we construct and fight to break down.”


Bringing together editors, writers and special guests, the reading room will host Stephanie Bailey in conversation with Sophia Al-Maria and Lawrence Lek, as well as conversations with Keren Cytter, Jon Rafman and Donna Huanca.


A programme of performances will take place every day from October 5 to 9, including ‘Jõusaal (Gym)’ by Augustas Serapinas —who is currently showing Housewarming with Emalin in London —as well as Lloyd Corporation, and Mahmoud Khaled who will explore themes of censorship and surveillance.


This years Frieze projects, curated by Raphael Gygaxlooks at ‘transformation’ through sound, theatre, dance and literature, with work by Coco Fusco, Martin Soto Climent, and Frieze Artist Award-winner Yuri Pattison and more.
